Plan Your Recruiting With Tips from Business Registration Hong Kong

September 6, 2013

How do you start the hiring process? Many business managers jump straight to resume screening and interview performance as a basis for employee selection. While these can be a good start, it’s easy to be fooled by a professional resume and solid interview. Ensure a superior hire by planning your recruiting process by following advice from Business Registration Hong Kong.

Begin your recruitment hiring by determining what positions need to be filled. Perform a job analysis and write down all job specifications to better define the job description. Next, contact those who you think should attend the planning meeting. Start off with a Human Resources recruiter and hiring manager. You can also include successful employees in this position or direct supervisors to the position.

During the meeting, use the job specifications to rank the most important qualities, education, and experience for potential hires to have. This ranking will help your recruiter write accurate job ads and screen applications better. Remember, it’s okay to edit as the meeting progresses. Determine where the job will be posted to gain the best candidate pool, and remember to include internal recommendations.

Next, plan out the interview process. Write up the screening question for the HR recruiter to use for phone screens. Decide who will interview candidates and what characteristics they will be evaluating. Candidates should be evaluated on cultural fit and the skills needed to fulfill the role. Assign behaviorally-based interview questions to those who will be doing the interviewing. You can include real-life scenarios, role plays, and specific problem solving questions. If the job description calls for it, you can also include a test to give candidates, such as a writing test for positions that communicate with customers via e-mail. Determine how the questions, role plays, and tests will be graded and plan out the follow-up process.

Finally, get recruiting! Utilizing your team’s organizational skills will help you find the best candidates from the start, saving your company time and money. For more information on how to improve your business, how to get started, and more, visit Business Registration Hong Kong.

Retain Your Employees by Starting With Your Team

May 1, 2013

Great employees will bring value to your company and will keep customers coming back for more. These types of assets are important to keep around, but how? Business Registration Hong Kong recommends starting at home with your team.

The first step to retention is to evaluate the team you already have. How can you improve the quality of new hires? Who are your all-stars that you want to keep around? How can you further develop those who aren’t quite hitting the mark? Being able to answer these questions will set up the whole process.

Start off the evaluation process with those who are underperforming. Assess whether the job is the wrong fit for them, whether the company culture isn’t right for them, or if they aren’t clear on the requirements and expectations of the job. Be sure to provide specific feedback, goals, and objectives along the way. If this has all been completed and the employee is still underperforming, let the person go. Sometimes jobs just don’t fit well with certain people, and now you’ve freed them to find a job more suited for them.

To improve the quality of new hires, implement a team recruitment strategy. Figure out what roles you need filled in the team, and involve those who will be working with the new recruit in the interviewing and hiring process. This can be done in the following three ways:

Employee as agent

This type of setup offers some sort of monetary incentive to current employees who help successfully recruit new team-members. This is particularly successful because current employees have a first-hand understanding of how teams work, what each role does, and what the company culture is like. Being an employee as agent gives the employee added value because they feel that their opinion matters. It also reduces the company’s reliance on external recruiting sources, saving both time and money.

Employee as contributing evaluator

This type of team-based recruiting invites current employees to weigh in on the interview process. They give their opinions of possible recruits and give insight on how these potential candidates will fit in with the team. This gives current employees a more substantial say in the company, more value from inclusion, and fosters positive working relationships.

Employee as sponsor

Employee sponsorship helps reduce stress on new recruits by giving them a go-to person who can answer any questions they might have, provide guidance, and offer additional training outside of orientation. This improves the way the company is seen by new recruits, and how new recruits are seen by current employees. It fosters positive working relationships between all employees, as well as strengthens the bond and productivity of a team from day one.

Whatever method you choose, employee retention is one of the easiest ways to keep your business ahead of the competition. Keep your team happy by including them in the hiring process and watch productivity soar.
