How do you find and hire the right employee? It is well-known that great employee adds value to company productivity and culture, whereas a bad employee can bring substantial harm to a company. There are many guides and checklists that can help you through the process of finding the right person to hire. The bottom line is that you need to be organized, you need to clearly define what you are looking for in a person, and you need to be effective in how you utilize the employment process developed. Below is a list of guidelines to follow that can help you find the right employee for your business.

1: Build a Strong Brand

A strong business brand, such as Apple or Amazon, is unique in the marketplace. It does not try to do everything. It develops a core line of products that are better than any others in the market. They establish clear guidelines for success and strive to achieve them in an open and authentic manner. A strong brand reduces employee turnover and attracts a large number of those seeking better opportunities.

2: Keep an Eye on your Online Profile

Potential employees will review your website, social media, and online reviews on third-party sites. If you want to attract top talent, you need to make sure that distraught former employees and unscrupulous competitors are not destroying your reputation. Build a positive and honest profile as you fight against incorrect information.

3: Write a Clear and Concise Job Description

A potential employee needs to know what job he or she is applying for. The job description should be realistic and reasonable. A potential employee should know what the job entails before he or she applies.

4: Use a Recruitment Checklist

A checklist with clearly defined actions can help streamline the process. It makes sure all the necessary steps are taken. It also ensures that you remain organized through the hiring process.

5: Post Job Opening Where Best Potential Available Candidates Are

If you are looking for a social media manager, you will want to post the job opening on the social platforms you are most interested in managing. If you are looking for a law clerk, you may want to post the job opening at the career center of a law school. This is not a one size fits all approach. Be selective. Know where your best potential employee candidates hang out.

6: Ask the Right Job Interview Questions

As you look for a new employee, be aware of the type of person you are looking for. Interview questions should be thorough in helping you look for the person who is the “best fit.” It is not just about skills and experience. You want to also look for those soft skills that will add value to your business culture. Are you looking for someone who will follow the rules, or are you looking for a creative outside the box thinker?

7: Review Credentials and Applications Carefully

Check backgrounds and references. Make sure the information provided during the hiring process is accurate and thorough. Make sure you review your recruitment guidelines and job description as you get closer to selecting your final candidate(s).

8: Move Quickly and Efficiently

The best and most motivated candidates are off the market within 2 weeks. If you want to attract fast movers, you have to act fast. It is important to have a streamlined process so that you can quickly move through it. At the same time, you want to make sure you give yourself enough time to review candidates in order to find the best fit.   Whether building a tax business or adding preparation to an existing business, 1040TaxBiz will train and support your team members so you can focus on other areas.
