How to Hire Employees for the First Time

Business owners who are ready to hire employees for the first time need to consider a few things before jumping in. Your main motive to hire employees is to increase productivity to grow your business; however, can you afford to pay an employee a full salary if that person isn’t capable of producing the manpower you are imagining?

Firing someone and then finding a replacement just means that you have to spend more time away from your business, only to be stuck in the same situation you were before.

How to Hire Employees

When you hire employees for the first time, consider this:

  1. Which position can you trust to someone else?
  2. How will this position grow your business?
  3. Will this position grow your business enough to compensate to hire employees for?
  4. Do you need full or part time employees?
  5. Do you need temporary or permanent?
  6. What skills does someone need to fulfill this position?
  7. How many employees do you need for this position?

Once you have this information available, you can begin your search to hire employees in a number of places.

  • Asking close family, friends and colleagues if they have recommendations for people who have the skills you are seeking for the position.
  • Search online on industry-related websites and blogs with help wanted sections. You’ll find people actively seeking work who are interested in the field you are hiring for and most likely have the skills you desire.
  • Hire employees from staffing agencies who have people already picked out with the skills you need available to start work immediately.

Avoid hiring employees who come from large companies. While they may seem like they have the skills you would like in someone to help your business grow, they also have the mindset of someone who works for a large corporation with many strict rules. That can make it difficult to work with the person.

As you can gather, hiring employees who perform up to your expectations can be difficult. You don’t know quite what you’ll get until you have them in your business working.

How Staffing Solutions Can Help

That is, unless you have their history and experience thoroughly checked and skills tested. While it’s not as possible for you to do this, it is for staffing agencies. For all employees  they have available, they check their employment histories and test their skills so they can ensure when a company asks for specific skills they are providing people who have proved they have them, not just claim they have them.
