Since employees are the most important and expensive part of your business, recruiting and hiring the top talent always should be the most important task of human resources. You have tried and true ways of attracting talent to your organization. Are these the best ways to find the right people? Maybe, but to be sure, we turn to Rieva Lesonsky, CEO of GrowBiz Media. She suggests that there are four great ways to attract and hire talent. Her thoughts are posted on smallbiztrends.com, and you can read her article here.
Ms Lesonsky believes that to find the best you must do the following:
1) Get away from your traditional job boards. Using the “ready, fire, aim” method of recruiting will not get you your target employee. Use sites that are very focused on what you want and are looking for.
2) Don’t be afraid of social sites. LinkedIn has become one of the best recruiting tools out there. Sign up and get busy!
3) You paid a lot of money for your website…use it for more than marketing to your customers. It can be an extremely effective place to get the best people interested in your company.
4) Use your employees. If your company is successful, it is because of your employees. Your employees are usually friends with people a lot like themselves…so find more of what you already have through the relationships your employees already have.
