Whether you hire 1,000 people annually, 10 or even 1, there is tremendous value in examining your hiring system, considering whether it’s as strong as it could be, and identifying opportunities for improvement.
But I know you have a ton of other stuff to do. Why is this important?
A weak hiring system results in wasted time by you and your employees, vacant seats for longer than necessary, and poor hiring decisions, all of which negatively impact revenue, client service, and morale.
It’s possible that you may not even be aware that your hiring system has weak points: the “You don’t know what you don’t know,” phenomenon. For example, you may think that you have an efficient and streamlined process, but little do you know that there are inexpensive and easy-to-operate software options that can save tremendous time and help you make even better decisions.
Whether you’re happy with your hiring system right now or it’s causing you known frustration, here are 10 key questions that can help you identify opportunities.
No matter how you do this, I hope you will take an hour or so to think through these 10 questions and determine how strong your hiring system is. After all, your talent is the foundation for your company’s success.
