To run a successful yet small business, hiring employees is one of the most important processes, this is because they are ultimately the people who will represent the values and ideals of your business. Finding the ‘perfect’ candidate can be tricky, however it is important to be patient and not rush, hiring the wrong person can do more damage and be a lot of hassle.
But how exactly can you find the right employee for your business?
The team at DYWAJ have put together a list of factors that will help you identify if your next interviewee is the one for you:
● Making sure they’re a good fit – It’s important that your potential employees have the skills necessary to do the job they have applied for. However, it’s important your candidates integrate well within your business and your employee dynamic. Otherwise, you could see a negative turn on your employees productivity and overall happiness at work.
● Maintaining a good work ethic and integrity – Unsurprisingly, years of building up a good business reputation can be ruined within a matter of hours due to dishonest and unethical employees. This is exactly why you want to hire people who will be honest and work without leading other employees astray.
● Staying motivated – Beyond their paycheck, employees should be able to motivate themselves to do the best job they can. You should be looking for a candidate with a good drive, an excellent understanding and interest in the position and someone who is willing to perform above and beyond for their job description.
● Using their initiative – Often, in a small business, it can be difficult for managers to “micromanage” every single one of their employees. Instead, you should strive to hire employees who can think and work independently, requiring little supervision and guidance. That way you can get on with your own important jobs and still reap the benefits of your brand new employee.
