How to Hire the Right Employee

  Reading Time:

The most important capital of a company is the right employees. One of the most tedious tasks is hiring the right employee. As the old saying goes, “A great employee is like a four-leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.” But how do we know who is the right one? Instead of looking for the perfect candidate, look for the perfect candidate for your company. Pay attention not only to skills and expertise, but also to adaptability and ability to learn.

1.Check adaptability

The most important quality to look for in a potential applicant is their adaptability. The first question every HR manager should ask is whether or not a person can adapt to your workplace culture. An employee must fit into your culture. Otherwise, it's not a good deal for the company or for you. You should not hire a candidate who changes companies frequently in order to get a raise.

2.Aptitude for learning and analytical skills

It is difficult to test an applicant, but one should always try to check the approach of analytical thinking and curiosity in learning. Trying to hire the right employee based on resume alone is the biggest mistake because a resume can lie. It even happens that HR managers only hire the applicant because of their great achievements. Which in the end turns out to be a “brilliant idiot.”

3.Look for hands-on experience

One of the most common mistakes made when hiring is to overemphasize educational qualifications and pay less attention to the applicant's practical experience. Even if qualifications are credible, they should not be the main criterion for pre-selection.

4.A better hiring process

Different methods should be used in the recruitment process. This way you can get a clear picture of the applicant's qualities and skills. This works better than just looking at the applicant's resume.

5.Hire interns

Many companies hire interns. Since the interns have worked with you, you may know their talents, strengths, weaknesses, skills, intelligence, and people skills. After watching their progress, you know much more about them, while on the other hand, you know nothing about the candidate you just met and interviewed. This also saves you a lot of time, effort, and risks associated with the hiring process.

6.Don’t forget social media

It is not surprising that 90% of companies recruit through social media such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. Nearly 45% of Fortune 500 companies self-post job openings on social media. That being said, social media can say a lot about a candidate, which can be helpful when deciding whether to hire a particular person.

It is important to establish a structured hiring process. This includes setting clear job requirements and expectations and creating job postings that accurately reflect the position. IceHrm's recruitment and applicant tracking system can help your organization help you establish a well structured hiring process so that you can hire the right employee for your organization.
