Get straight to the point
To be efficient in your human resources management, you need to have structured ideas. If you’re looking for employees, draw up a list of what you want and don’t want. That way, you’ll have a clear head when writing your job offer and conducting inter-views.
The same goes for managing your current employees. If you can verbalize your vision of things, it will be concise for them as well. You will thereby avoid potential conflicts.
That said, you won’t be able to have an enlightened vision without first asking yourself the right questions:
- What do you want for your business in the next few years?
- Have you established a growth strategy? If so, do you know how many additional employees you’ll need to achieve your goals?
- Is there a job description for each position?
- Is there a hiring procedure in place?
This type of simple questioning can go a long way toward creating an effective strate-gy. The advisors from your SADC or CAE can help you with your efforts.
