Good people are hard to find. If you’ve managed any group of employees for any amount of time, there’s a good chance you already know that. However, what you may not know is, when you find a dependable, high-quality team member, they often quickly become an irreplaceable asset for your team. Unfortunately, not everyone gets the opportunity to work with others they feel they can depend on, but it can make a world of a difference.
Building your core team is an ongoing part of any company’s continued growth. The first part of strengthening your company’s team is often actually making it more fluid. Continually bringing in and trying out new team members in different roles is a great way to find out who works the best in what situations. Whether it’s an intern or a division manager, continually analyze the skills of your staff, and make sure they are each well-positioned for success.
For an established company, complacency is one of the most important things a business owner or manager should be watching for. Are your employees being properly utilized? Creating an atmosphere where your employees feel that they are always upwardly mobile is a great way to not only motivate those who are ambitious and just starting out, but also those who hold higher-ranking positions, and want to keep those positions!
So you’re focused on growing your company. You’re analyzing your current staff and looking for those you want to make your core team. Chances are, you already know the type of person you want to surround yourself within the workplace. They are the ones who are reliable, dependable and take responsibility for their work. When you give them a task or goal, you know they’ll get it done. If they don’t know how to do something, they figure it out.
So, if you’re looking to hire NEW employees, how do you know if they are dependable? No matter how hard you try to get to know a candidate before you hire them, interviews are only a short amount of time! What if you used a temporary-to-hire service, allowing you to ‘test the waters’ before hiring the employee full time? Not only will this give you some peace of mind, it really tests the employee as well.
Temporary-to-hire services do all of the screening for you and assist in the interview process. With NTG Staffing, our recruiters will visit your office to get a feel for the environment before selecting a couple of well-qualified candidates to fit the part. You can go from taking chances and risks on people, to being introduced to the future of your solidified team!
Typically after three to six months, you can make the decision to choose to hire the employee onto your team full time, or you can decide to go another direction. Allowing the staffing company to present you with suitable candidates until you are satisfied! We bet it doesn’t take long, though. Our recruiters know their people!
