The Hiring Process
One of the most important ongoing tasks you'll have as a business leader is hiring. It's not easy, though; it's a time-consuming process with monetary and reputation consequences if you make a bad hire.
Taking the time to find the right person — someone who is not just technically capable but also a good fit for the company — is important. Companies that are successful in hiring have a process that includes attracting high-quality candidates, evaluating them in several different areas, and taking the time to get to know the people in different ways.
Hiring the right people starts with a clear job description - one that clearly defines the objectives of the position, as well as the most pivotal skills and requirements potential employees should have to fill that position. Many companies don't put a lot of thought their job descriptions or fill them with generic duties that don't truly define the position. This makes it difficult for staff members to recognize the right individuals that apply. Not having a clear job description can also encourage applicants that don't have the needed skills or temperament to apply in the first place.
At Elsun, we help organizations create job descriptions that clearly spell out job responsibilities, define needed employee capabilities and avoid confusion. We can also help you retain your best employees by improving existing job descriptions, providing guidance for performance evaluations and developing organization charts to clarify employee functions to achieve company goals.
