The business are operated in order to satisfy the needs and wants of the people where the traditional focus for a very lone tome has been to ‘make customer the king’ and do whatever it takes to make the customers happy. More recent studies show that it isn’t the customer that needs to be the king, but rather the employees who are working in your company.
Therefore, you cannot simply make anyone a king without proper investigation and understanding of his/her suitability to the position. If you are a start-up business you might be facing the big dilemma of how to employee-source your organization at this stage and get the right employees for the right job. Therefore, a careful and an affordable selection method have to be in place if you want to get the best possible outcome.
Get the offer out right
You might be considering placing a paper-based advertisement or a digital advertisement to attract the employees. However, the less-costly and the more effective way would be to contact head hunters or professional CV writers who act as agencies having contacts of serious and more suitable employees. At a smaller commission to the agency, you could get a lot of relevant and more accurate resumes for the posts that you are looking to hire.
Get the help for screening
If you are a start-up chances are that you do not have a highly professional HR team to screen the resumes. Therefore, along with your judgments get the help of a few closer family members and friends who have a decent knowledge in business and management. Opinions of different people can matter as you are on the lookout to get a person who could easily blend in with your business environment.
Get more knowledge
If you are unaware of the kind of people that you should recruit, there are plenty of sources that you could get advice from. A visit to the local HR consortium could get you access to the many books and CV articles with samples that could communicate on what to look for in a resume at the initial process of screening.
Also, they would give you more information on the newest and the most suitable methods that you could use to fine screen your employees. A larger scale organization would have the strength to conduct assessment centres whereas a smaller organization could engage in more informal techniques to screen the employees.
Second and third screening
After the proper resumes are screened, interviews and other informal techniques which are suitable and more cost-effective for the firm as you are still a start-up. The cost should be well-spent on getting the right employee rather than the cost for the process. Also, when the candidates visit the company for the interview ensure that you have arranged the set-up in an attractive way as the candidates are bound to judge the nature of the firm, depending on the environment that they are operated in.
Selecting the right employee to your organization starts from the moment you decide on starting a business as a start-up, as no organization can flourish without employees. Therefore the entire process is more lucrative and tiresome than you might anticipate. Be prepared for several mistakes and budget for them as since you are a start-up the little implications can matter a lot more.
