2020 has taken a toll on all of us across both our business and personal lives. With the hope brought by new vaccines, however, there is now a light at the end of the tunnel.Many are predicting that the economy will continue its upswing and hiring efforts will surge. Whether a company is large or small, this uptick in recruiting has the potential to significantly stress HR departments and hiring managers. At Stillwater Human Capital, we are ready to help. Here are just a few tips to help you ramp up your recruiting efforts as the economy comes back online.
Continually Monitor and Evaluate your Conditions
Many cautious business owners practice a reactive approach to hiring employees, waiting until current employees are stretched beyond their means or profits begin to suffer because current staff can't keep up with demands. While there is usually no real harm in caution, the predicted post-COVID rebound requires a more proactive approach. As economies reopen with limitations in place, consumers have begun to grow weary of long wait times and compromised service. Providing a better customer experience by reducing wait times and exceeding client expectations is a great way to boost profits and build a broader customer base. To do this, you'll need to keep a very close eye on the status of operations and current employees so that you can hire sooner rather than later.
Protect Your Business, Employees, and Customers
Even as the economy comes back online, the public health crisis is far from over. While testing and treatment methods have improved and quarantine times have been reduced, COVID-19 is likely to have an influence on business for years to come. As a business owner, It's important for you to protect your bottom line, employees, and customers. This means following local COVID policies to reduce liability and outbreaks, and capitalizing on remote and virtual capabilities and much as possible. Conducting virtual hiring fairs and interviews helps reduce unnecessary exposure, and putting coronavirus policies in place helps limit downtime and financial loss in the event of employee or customer infection.
Outsource Recruiting Efforts
As your business continues to meet the growing demands of your customers, sifting through resumes should not be at the top of your to-do list when you have pressing business needs to attend to. By outsourcing your hiring efforts, you can optimize the time you spend building your company while simultaneously having quality talent hand-selected for you. Scalable recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) options offer you project-based, on-demand, or total end-to-end solutions.
