Human Resource Procedures: Hiring

Each day 50,000 people quit their jobs. In most cases it is because they should never have been hired in the first place! When hiring a new employee, HR professionals focus on what the candidate has done. When firing an employee, HR professionals focus on who they are. This technique rarely turns out long-term, successful employees or potential managers. (Sometimes, but this is the exception and not the rule.) This is why it is important to hire the person and not the resumé. An HR procedure for hiring can help you hire the right person, the first time; not only for the job, but for the organization.

Below is a list of things to consider when constructing a full-proof hiring procedure for your organization:

  • Determine who needs to be involved in the interview process
  • Determine characteristics a viable candidate should possess for specific jobs
  • Determine what the company culture is and what type of employee would “fit into” that culture

Those are just a few considerations to include in an HR Procedure for Hiring. SACS Consulting & Investigative Services, Inc. can formulate the best procedure for successful hiring in your organization. Contact us to speak with one of our HR Procedure specialists today to find out more!
