Does it feel like a rain cloud hangs over the office? Employees getting the thousand-yard stare? These are only a couple tell-tale signs of a workforce lacking in morale, and if there is any hint of them, HR pros need to act quick and resolve the situation before the negative attitude begins to ingrain itself in employees. Here are a few easy steps to take to lighten the mood and provide some much needed motivation:
Your hiring process is like a fine tuned, well-oiled engine. The gears begin churning as you identify that you have a vacancy, making sure to cross your T’s and dot your i’s on developing the position description. You plan out how you’re going to recruit and then put the plan into action. Submission after submission begin to roll in as you gather and review applicant's information and create a list of your interview prospects. Through this, you generate a series of questions hoping to gain the best and most qualified job applicant to join your workforce.
It’s no BIG secret that today’s job market is tough. As an employer you know how it is when a position opens within your company, there is a flood of resumes that come in and the real work begins. Countless hours going through them looking for something that catches your eye and screams out "ME, I'm the perfect candidate for this position!" But what about those hilarious resumes that make you scratch your head and think "am I seriously reading this right now?"
Applicants who have committed fraudulent and dishonest acts in the past are often rejected due to their personal backgrounds. But let’s say you have decided to hire an ex-felon due to their qualifications and the tax benefit you will receive. Perhaps you wish to give this person a second chance, maybe they dazzled you in the interview or it could be that the “felon” was convicted of felony bear wrestling ( yes that is a law see it here ). Although you feel good about your decision, perhaps you want to make sure that you are protected with a bond.
Interviewing for a job is tough, but the hiring process is even tougher. After you sit through what feels like a thousand interviews, the company still needs to go through their standard hiring process before you officially land the job. It’s a stressful time for anyone looking for a new job.
