A great hiring strategy encompasses communication, clarity, and working with new talent. Here are 4 tips for employers in the supply chain industry.
Hiring the right person is easily one of the hardest things to do. Resumes and cover letters come through your office every day. At this point, they all seem to be the same.
That’s a problem, considering you need someone who can stand out from the pack and get the job done.
In order to hire the best person for the team, you need to pull out the best tactics to get them. It’s time to upgrade your hiring strategy to get the employee you want – and we’ve got the info you need to do just that.
Your Hiring Strategy Should Start with Your Current Employees
What better way of attracting top talent than to use your top talent?
Your current employees are top of the line in their own right — that’s why you hired them on your team in the first place. Why not have them become your brand ambassador to help attract potential workers to the business?
Making brand ambassadors out of your employees is super easy to do on LinkedIn. They can make their accounts there, search out promising profiles, and reach out to them to get them interested in working for your company.
Really Know the Position You’re Hiring For
We’re sure that you know the name of the position, but that isn’t enough; you have to really know what you’re hiring for, and what to expect from your future employee.
Make sure that you understand the ins and outs of the spot you want to be filled. For example, if it’s a position that handles manufacturing, you’ll want to know about the work, the skills, and the type of person that’s needed for the job.
Even if you may have some experience in that position and you think you know about what the job entails, you’ll want to look into the requirements again, as jobs and their requirements are constantly changing.
Build up Your Social Media Networks
We can’t stress this enough: You really need to improve your social media presence.
More people than ever before are on social media. In fact, statistics show that there are more accounts on Facebook than there are people in China — with more still on Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and others.
With these numbers, it’s clear that many people make use of social media – and your company should do the same.
Start by cleaning out your dusty social feed and update your settings, then draw in the crowd you need to get your social media page on the map. This opens you up to a significantly large pool of potential hires.
Prescreen Your Potential Hires
Like we said before, picking the right employee is hard with a resume alone. You run the risk of throwing away a good one – or even worse, picking a good-looking resume and getting a bad employer.
To help narrow the risks, try prescreening your potential hires instead.
Giving your appliers a quick call helps you to find out more about them. You can tell if they are engaged with the conversation, as well as their salary expectations and if even if they may be a good fit for the job.
With this trick, you can easily weed out the bad candidate and leave yourself with a much better chance at finding the right employee.
