Hiring Machine: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Exemplary Hiring Practices
Your Step-by-Step Guide to Exemplary Hiring Practices
A job requisition is a formal request to fill an open position. In most companies, a hiring manager must get the job req approved before initiating the hiring process. If you are starting a business from scratch, it may seem unnecessary to create a process at first. You only need to fill a couple of positions, right? You’re busy getting your company going. Who has time to outline a recruitment process? Consider this: you hope your business grows rapidly. If you are fortunate and that happens, you aren’t going to have any more time down the road. A lack of process becomes the de facto norm. It contributes to a haphazard, disorganized company culture. Most importantly, it won’t be effective in finding the employees you need. Model a process after established companies 50 times your size. That’s what you’re aiming for, right? Begin with the end in mind. Few things are as important as the quality of the employees on your team. Formalization ensures the process is done correctly. It sets expectations for everyone involved. And you can’t improve a process until you identify exactly what is going on.
