There are some key steps – from interview to working on a daily basis – that employers can take to reduce risk from the off, increase the information available to make a decision, and allay any fears, as well as lower the risk of attrition.
Whether your business already has an HR department or not, it is always worth assessing what processes they perform on a daily basis and whether it is more cost effective to outsource some processes, particularly recruitment, to an expert.
If your business is within a niche industry for example, there are specialist recruitment agencies that can manage the advertising, sourcing, interviewing and selection as part of the service. And of course, if the agency is unsuccessful, there is no fee.
Take a view of what is more beneficial for your business. This is particularly useful to consider when your company is growing rapidly, so as to alleviate pressure on the HR department if you have one.
