posted by Sally Brause on Monday, January 25, 2016 in Unified Communications and IT Blog

Attracting and hiring good employees is a top challenge for more than half of those surveyed this year by GreatAmerica. A bad hire can cost a company thousands of dollars, but according to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), it can also negatively impact company morale and productivity.

Adopting a hiring process and mastering each step along the way can cut hiring costs and drastically improve results. How do you know if you have a hiring process? First ask yourself these three questions.

  1. Do you have absolute clarity on the role you are hiring for, and what top performance in the role looks like? See “Identify” step in infographic.
  2. Are you posting job ads and hoping top candidates apply? See “Source” and “Engage” steps in hiring process.
  3. Do you have a process for objectively assessing candidates or just follow the “gut feeling” of the hiring manager? See “Assess” step in hiring process infographic.

We’ve compiled best practices and trends in hiring to show you just how impactful following a hiring process can be.
