The Dog Gurus Give the Latest Tips on Hiring Your Team
By: Whitegate PR INC
"The rules (of hiring employees) are completely different to what they used to be…" states Joe, "…I will tell you that in in just the last twelve to eighteen months the rules have completely changed". Business from clients is not what is a challenge these days for many industries, it's the obtaining and hiring the right employees for a company is the challenge now. It's an employee's market, not an employer's market, for job search and attainment.
One of the biggest challenges for a company is to make the employees feel part of a personable and fun community. A comfortable, friendly, and social environment is highlighted by Joe on what kind of workplace is desired these days. Facilities need to challenge and acclimate to the needs and wants of the modern employee and challenge the old mindset of what "has always been".
Defining expectations of new (and current) employees is a key component in having everyone work to their highest potential. Focusing on what everyone's education, experiences, and skills are and utilizing them to benefit the entire staff is one way to make team members feel valued and appreciated.
A company that is willing to evolve along with technology will also be more likely to gain quality and long-term team members. Websites and social media that is up to date and current with the times are important for any business in any industry these days. A dedicated careers section on the company website can lead to recruiting the perfect employee for your business. Using real photos of employees and experiences at your business on your site is another good draw for people to be inspired to work with and for you.
