To run a successful business, making the right hiring decisions is critical in keeping your hiring costs low and maintaining positive employee morale. But you do not need to engage the services of an expensive recruiter when scouring for talent that will help you grow your organization. If expansion is in your future, consider these tips:
Create a detailed job description.
Get the word out.
Review resumes, arrange interviews.
When you identify the best candidate, it’s time to extend the offer, negotiate salary, and confirm a start date. Hopefully by the time you extend an offer, the due diligence that you performed upfront will help to ensure that you made a smart hire.
