Some businesses start with a single employee: the owner. If your business started as a party of one, you’ll need to add people to your team if you want it to grow.
Having the right employees can make a world of difference in how successful your business is. Finding the right employees can be easier said than done though. So what can you do to make it easier?
Be Transparent about Salary Range
Far too many job listings don’t mention salary in any way. That can be a major mistake. No job seekers want to waste their time applying and interviewing for a job only to find out that the salary range being offered doesn’t work for them.
It’s a waste of time for you as an employer too. Many job seekers won’t even apply if they don’t see salary information. Fix that by being transparent about the salary range you’re offering. That way you’ll have a better chance of getting applicants who find your salary range acceptable. This transparency could also improve your employee retention rates.
Consider Remote Candidates
Traditionally, workers have had to live relatively close to where they work. As technology has advanced and business operations have changed, working remotely has become more of an option. Opening up to the option of remote work drastically increases your pool of options.
Just make sure you’re prepared to provide remote workers with the support they need to be successful. Remote workers require more equipment to work effectively and securely. You could provide this for them or opt to reimburse them for the costs they incur to obtain the necessary equipment.
Have Reasonable Expectations about Qualifications
Unreasonable qualification expectations are something of a running joke amongst job seekers now. Too many job listings list unrealistic qualifications. What’s worse, some will list salary ranges that are far too low for the required qualifications. While you may think this gets you a higher caliber of employee, the reality is that you’re more likely to miss out on plenty of perfectly qualified candidates. Carefully consider what skills and how much experience are essential for the position you’re trying to fill. Remember, you can always invest in developing employee skills if you find a candidate who otherwise seems like a good fit.
You need the right people on your team. Make it easier on yourself and prospective employees by thoughtfully designing your job listings and being open to less conventional employment options. Remember to post your listing on multiple job boards. That will help you attract enough applicants to find an employee who will be a good fit for your business.
