Tips for Hiring The “Right” Employee

Tips for Hiring The "Right" Employee Your company has just experienced a growth spurt, and you find yourself in need of hiring some new employees. It can be a daunting and overwhelming task! Where do you start and how do you “thin the pack” to find the right employee?

Do you hire based on personality, skills, references or all three? Not to worry, at Richmond Hazelton Group, we can help you make the right decision.

But first, let’s take some time to share some tips to help guide you in your search:

  • Write a descriptive description – be clear in who you are looking for – the more details, the better
  • Fine tune your website and social media platforms – this is the first place the potential hires will look to learn about your company
    • If you are trying to reach a millennial, having an outdated site can be a turn-off
  • Remember you can train anyone to do some of the tasks you are looking, but you can’t make significant changes in a person’s personality
  • When you receive applications – check out the applicant’s digital footprint – this can shed a great deal of light on the prospective candidate
  • Make sure to address any online reviews – address both the negative and positive reviews – your online presence is first on list to be considered by possible candidates
