How to make your hiring process better for your business
- The first step in the hiring processes of good hiring managers is to get the job posting for the open position on as many sites as possible.
- After you’ve conducted job interviews, found a qualified candidate that fits the job description, and want to give them a job offer, it’s time to complete the onboarding process.
- Onboarding and new hire paperwork is a headache—but Homebase hiring can help by taking your human resource requirements online and off your mind.
Ditch the “now hiring” posters and find job candidates on the best hiring sites
No matter what industry your small business is a part of, you are most likely looking to find a plethora of qualified candidates to select from when hiring employees. The most efficient way to achieve this is to get the word out on a larger scale. This means posting your job opening on several trusted websites instead of relying on word of mouth.
The good news is that it does not have to be as expensive as you might think to disperse your job posting if you have the right tools. For example, having Homebase makes this hiring process step a breeze by posting your job on the top website for free.
These websites include key hiring companies like Indeed, ZipRecruiter, Craigslist, and even Facebook. Still, if you like the old-fashioned route, Homebase will help you manage your walk-in and referral applications as well.
Utilize pre-written job descriptions to eliminate one of your hiring process steps
If you are struggling to come up with a dazzling, eye-catching job description to attract the most qualified candidates on those hiring websites, Homebase can help eliminate yet another tricky part of the hiring process. You can use one of our pre-written job descriptions to help get you on the fast track to finding candidates and starting the interview process.
Whether you are looking for an assistant manager, executive chef, or even a director of operations, Homebase has you covered with customizable templates that will help you find the best person for the job even quicker.
Stay in touch with applicants
After the applications and cover letters come flooding in and you prepare for in-person interviews and review your interview questions, the next step is sifting through the applicants and finding the best ones.
To help make this easier and more efficient, Homebase offers applicant screener questions. You can choose from options such as “Do you feel comfortable wearing a mask while working?” and “Are you available to work on weekends?” to make better decisions when choosing who to interview.
Once you have selected your candidate shortlist, Homebase lets you message the applicants and schedule interviews right there from your convenient dashboard. This way there is no need to waste time tracking down phone numbers.
Reduce the headache of the onboarding process
The last step of the hiring process after you choose the best candidate is to onboard them to your team. This process includes not only acclimating them to your company culture, but satisfying the legal requirements mandated by the US Department of Labor.
Employee onboarding is the most tedious part of the hiring process, but don’t worry. Homebase can take the tedious out of the situation and make it as easy as possible. Through your hiring dashboard you can email your new hire a packet with all of the necessary forms, including form I-9, employment tax information, and any background check forms you require.
Your new hire can answer questions such as their preferences when it comes to withholding taxes online, e-sign the documents, and submit them back to you in one place well before starting their first day of work. That way when they walk through the doors, you have plenty of time to get them situated in other areas.
