When it is your first time in the business industry, you will definitely be testing the waters on almost everything. One task that may test your knowledge skills and patience is hiring your first
batch of employees. Hiring an incapable batch who will be in charge of your daily business operations can deter the flow of your income. It is important then that you hire a batch that will
perform to its maximum capacity. Here are some insights which can turn your employee-hunting into a cost-effective and meaningful one.
- Consider outsourcing some tasks to freelancers. This means you need to scrutinize which positions need full time workers. You can save a lot if you will have contractors or freelancers.
- Fish for referrals. It is quite challenging to look for efficient employees. Getting someone you trust to refer hardworking people to you can make hiring easier for you.
- Have a short list of candidates who may not have a work experience yet. Or if the applicants already have work experience, choose among those who have been employed in smaller institutions.
This is because it is much easier to train employees who are not yet used to following many rules. They could be bringing along work practices that are hard to break.
