Selecting fresh talent and recruiting the right candidate for your job role can be a daunting task. It can present immense pressure for an employer, not least because potentially your livelihood can depend on you making the right choice! Whether it be a small, local business or a large franchise it is absolutely vital to attract the right person for the job, and for several reasons.
Firstly, time is money! If you’re creating a selection process, have spent time writing a comprehensive job description, and you’ve already got steps in place to start training or mentoring your new talent, you need to know the person you have selected will not decide the job is after all ‘not for them’ and stroll off into the sunset in a couple of months’ time, leaving you stranded and having to start the entire process all over again!
Secondly, it is more important than many employers realise to ensure your latest recruit is a good ‘fit’ with the team you have already established. Studies have shown that when a team really fits together tightly, productivity is increased, well-being amongst staff is higher (which in turn encourages higher productivity) and the company’s aims are more likely to be attained, because everyone is on a similar wavelength, and are striving towards the same goals. Also, and perhaps crucially, higher retainment rates are increased, leading back to the time/money argument.
Innovation And Experience
When hiring new talent, Smart10 knows a thing or two about how to select the right candidate for specific job roles. Not least because we are one of Hertfordshire’s leading recruitment firms with over 30 years combined experience in the industry. And it’s not simply because we are leading the way in how recruiters treat, select and retain their top talent (we are among Hertfordshire’s top innovators, with an outstanding Company Head who has already won Business Person of the Year 2016 at Herts Business Awards, and Entrepreneur of the Year 2016 at Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards).
It’s really because we truly believe in an holistic approach to finding, employing and retaining the very best talent that Hertfordshire has to offer. And our success rate is undeniable!
But we don’t just want to keep that knowledge to ourselves (that would be a little bit greedy…and counterproductive!) After all, our business thrives on our reputation for providing the best talent around, and ensuring local companies across Hertfordshire and beyond, large and small, retain their talent, and that employers and employees alike are happy and successful.
