How to Kick-off 2015 With Great Permanent Hires

December 30th, 2014

Looking for new permanent hires for your company in 2015? Follow these tips. 

Start Looking For Temp Employees Before You Need Them. 

If you can manage to do so, start looking for temporary employees before the need is crucial. This will allow potential employees to know that your company is hiring; when you are ready, they will be ready too – with all pertinent information updated and prepared for submission. 

Conduct Interviews After the Holidays. 

Interviews should be conducted after the holidays in order to maximize effectiveness and seriousness. During the holiday season, many people are preoccupied with family, gift giving, and traveling. If you conduct your interviews after the holidays, your potential employees will likely be ready to get serious as soon as possible. 

Be Upfront About Dates and Commitments. 

If you are seeking permanent employees, be upfront about dates and commitments. Many potential employees don’t accept jobs because they feel like they are out of the loop or don’t know the expectations. Let your employees know that you want a full-time commitment for a minimum number of months. If your employees know this and still accept the position, chances are that they’re going to stick around for a while. 

Check References and Cover Letters. 

One easy way to ensure that you hire great permanent employees is to check references and cover letters. Though this method might seem old and dated, it’s actually one of the best ways to really gauge and assess a potential employee’s character and dedication. Don’t hesitate to contact references.

Once you have completed the above steps, you will be on the right track to having great permanent hires in 2015. If you need help finding high quality, motivated employees, contact Olympic Staffing.
