Hiring for now vs hiring for the future
Are you and your company considering hiring new staff? Hiring can be a complex process; seeing what your company needs and who can help deliver these needs for both current and future plans can be difficult. We’ve listed some considerations for your brand to make when thinking about recruitment, and where to outsource any missing gaps!
Firstly, we would suggest investing in employing the youth! Younger staff often have a fresh outlook on how your company can improve, many have just finished college or university, and so may have updated and improved training on your business sector! They also often have additional knowledge in social media, for example, and so may provide additional help for that aspect of your business, as well as being able to take in realms of training and education, due to your sector being an interest that is new to them, rather than older staff members who may feel lackadaisical towards their job and their sector. Many older staff members can also do this, of course, however, these skills are predominantly seen within younger generations. Additionally, they (statistically) will live longer, and so have the opportunity to grow with your company for a longer amount of time (statistically) than an older staff member. Of course, many older workers have the capacity to work the same length of time, so this is not a ‘one-size fits all’ statement!
Next, consider investing in training. No one you hire will be perfect! Look at the skills each candidate harbours and work out what you and your company can outsource for training to ensure your staff is up to scratch! Many candidates would love the opportunity of additional training, particularly if this is with certification.
Considering how your business may grow in the next 3/5 years maybe another area to look at. Seeing who you will need on board to make those plans happen may move your company into the next big thing. Why put your business on hold when you could excel in your sector with all your staff.
