Sure each hiring manager or department leader may have their own variations, but likely your organization has a process with some consistency. Think about your process, it likely centers around the new hire right? What about the rest of the team? How does your process allow for team work and team rapport building? Does your current process put the burden mostly on one person? Now may be a great time to consider how to incorporate your team into the training process!

The training and onboarding process can be very time consuming and stressful; for everyone. Engage with your existing team to see how they’d like to be involved.  Let’s face it, your team should have some excellent knowledge and experiences to share with your newest team member and now is a great time to start the rapport building! Often times, the training process can be a “back to the basics” refresher for existing staff and may allow an opportunity to review current processes. Now is an excellent time to share ideas amongst your group, learn who has a passion for training, and who may be looking for advancement opportunities!

After determining who from the team has an interest in assisting with the training process, consider the following:

  • Set clear objectives of areas that should be covered.
  • Determine priorities of the training process.
  • Meet with the current team members and the new hire together to discuss the training outline and let everyone know that you are open and available for questions, concerns, or additional assistance.
  • Meet with those involved regularly to discuss how the training process is going.
  • Be sure to keep certain crucial or confidential information on your responsibilities list.

As with any training process be sure to meet with your team individually or have them complete a follow up questionnaire to determine what worked well, what they enjoyed, and areas for improvement or change.

Growing Your Team /blog/growing-your-team/ /blog/growing-your-team/#respond Mon, 23 Jul 2012 15:29:52 +0000 /blog/?p=55 Continue reading ]]> Growth is exciting right? Well, not always. Eventually the initial excitement fades and the reality sets in. Where do we add staff? What type of talent would best compliment my current team? What doesn’t work well for my organization? Where do I start?

 

The costs of a bad hire can be astounding. Do your research before begininng the recruitment process. When was the last time your organization had a company culture evaluation? What are you learning from exit interviews? Sucessful hiring isn’t solely determined by the new employee you select but also the working atmosphere that you provide.

Bringing in the top talent in the industry may not be the answer if they are not a good fit for your team or if you are bringing them into a working environment where they cannot excel. Getting an unbiased evaluation from an HR consulting firm or a staffing agency can often uncover details to your workforce that you may overlook because of your daily exposure. Take the opportunity to not only grow your team but to grow a stronger team at the same time!

Who Likes Writing Job Descriptions? /blog/who-likes-writing-job-descriptions/ /blog/who-likes-writing-job-descriptions/#respond Wed, 11 Jul 2012 15:34:42 +0000 /blog/?p=46 Continue reading ]]> Let’s face it, writing a job description is not exciting. What’s less exciting? Reading one! In the struggle to obtain top talent today, give yourself an edge above the hiring managers that you are competing against with a strong job advertisement!

Have you visited Indeed.com lately? Take a moment to search for a job in your area that you are hiring for and see what your competition looks like. You’re likely to find a volume of postings that include everything from typo’s to formal job descriptions. I’m willing to bet your marketing team would agree that any exposure to your brand should be a good one. In addition to candidates seeking employment, potential clients who use search engines to learn more about you can land on your postings!

Here are a few quick tips to set your job advertisements apart while helping to attract the talent that’s right for the job:

  • Sell the job from the start! Most candidates only view bullet points and the first few sentences. Use this space to highlight the “What’s in it for me?” to your audience!
  • Job postings are advertisements not job descriptions! Give the basics of the position in your posting but don’t provide a detailed job description. Give your job seekers an idea of what they will be doing and what’s required to land the position.
  • Highlight the benefits of the position! Include details that would entice you to make a career move: benefits, vacation time, work environment, company stability, etc.
  • Highlight the benefits of working for your company! What do you love most about your organization? Does your company sponsor anything? What makes your company unique? Highlight company outings, events, casual Fridays, and anything else that makes your company a stand out. Ask your current employees for some of their favorites!
  • Does it draw you in? Be sure to review your job posting after publishing. Does it flow well? Does it grab your attention quickly and appeal to the candidate audience that you are targeting?
