Hiring solutions for small or medium-sized companies

Start-ups, small and mid-sized enterprises face many business challenges competing with larger companies, including recruitment as well: finding skilled workers, boosting employee productivity, motivating and engaging staff, and retaining them.

 

Placing the right person in the right job has become a crucial element in maintaining a competitive edge today. So, we’ve gathered these key steps for you to follow, ensuring your hiring practices are on track:

  • Forecast your business needs and have a proactive recruitment strategy in place: focus on medium and long-term strategy/goals so that you are attracting the right talent that can help to future proof your business. The key to this talent pipeline is marketing, use marketing to spread the word and engage your audience before they even know they want to come and work for your organization.
  • Create intensive internal referral & alumni rehire programs: it is important for you to understand how you are perceived versus how you want to be perceived, and then to create and act on a communication plan to address the gaps. 
  • Use social media for branding: no matter how small your company is, make sure your vision is clearly defined. You don’t want candidates to wonder how can your business enhance their career if it does not know where it is going? 
  • Broaden your hiring search: Leverage internationally trained professionals and drive knowledge diversity in your company. 
  • Think about your candidates first: Many of your major competitors will have a cold and unpersonal hiring process. You need to be different. Be clear on your hiring process and follow up with all the applicants. Be kind.
  • Move faster: highly skilled workers are scarce and it’s very likely the great candidate sitting in front of you have multiple interviews lined up with the competition. Your small size can be used to your advantage. Make your offers quickly before others poach them.
