10 Ways to Improve Your Hiring

(April 26, 2010)
When your pest management firm is down an employee, what can you do to ensure you'll hire the best person for the job?

Employers instinctively know that locating and securing the right employee for any position can be a daunting task. The moment a vacancy occurs in an organization, it is often a race against the clock to fill the open spot with the perfect person - someone with an identifiable set of skills, a willingness to learn and grow, and a strong work ethic.

To produce such results, hiring managers often expend their most precious resources - time and money. In many cases your pest management firm will need to fill a position that has unexpectedly come open due to an employee leaving. Perhaps the former employee was dismissed from the company. Maybe he left on his own but gave very little advance warning, which means you have less time to perform an adequate transition process. Perhaps he was a vital member of the organization, someone with deep institutional knowledge that served faithfully in advancing the company's objectives. Regardless, the longer the position remains vacant, the more the company stands to lose.

Hiring managers are faced with an important question when they are charged with hiring new personnel. How can they ensure that they'll get the best person for the job? Building reliability and confidence in your hiring procedures involves a series of crucial steps, and it begins even before the vacancy occurs. Here are 10 steps to help you improve your hiring skills:
    1. Know and Understand the Job.

    2. Begin the Process Immediately.

    3. Conduct Strategic Recruiting.

    4. Streamline the Screening Process.

    5. Perform the Motivational Test.

    6. Check for Crucial Skills.

    7. A Cutter, a Maintainer or a Builder?

    8. Perform Background Checks.

    9. Medical and Drug Screenings.

    10. Document the Process.
