You’ve finally hired the perfect new addition to your team. Congratulations! The process of finding, interviewing, checking references, and hiring can be a long and tiring road, unless you hire an executive search firm to make it simple. Regardless of how you got there, you’ve hired your ideal candidate… but now what?

 

Now it’s time to onboard your new employee. Many companies skip over this step, though it is crucial as strong onboarding is essential to engage new hires. Why is this?

 

When an employee starts their first day at a new company, they are overwhelmed with new stimuli. From a new desk to new coworkers, new location to new tasks; without guidance it can be extremely difficult for them to know what it is that they should do first. That’s why we have come up with a few tips to help improve your onboarding process!

 

Introductions

The first step to properly onboarding a new hire is making introductions. This can include introducing them to the office space, their coworkers, as well as the work that is currently taking place and what they will be doing. By introducing the individual to all of these things, they will feel more comfortable moving around the space, and most importantly, asking their colleagues questions that they may not have asked if they did not know them.

 

Welcome Package

Regardless of whether this is a new position or the new hire is replacing another employee, a welcome package is a great way to get the ball rolling. This welcome package should include items such as:

  • Information about the company
  • An in depth job description
  • Login credentials for programs
  • Daily tasks
  • Monthly tasks
  • An agenda
  • A monthly/yearly company calendar
  • And more

 

This welcome package allows for the new hire to spend their first day going over what is specifically expected of them, and what kind of work they can look forward to completing moving forward. It also allows for them to set up their work space, shake the nerves, and get ready to dive in to their new work.

 

There are many ways to successfully onboard a new hire and they are very important. The first few days at a new job tell the individual a lot about the company, and the company a lot about the individual. A strong onboarding process gives the new hire the best chance of showcasing their skills, which really is best for both parties.

Your company is flourishing faster than you ever thought it would. The pace is steady, and you’ve noticed that things could be running smoother if you hired an executive. You want someone who is experienced, smart, quick to learn, and ultimately someone who will assist in helping your company continue to grow. But where do you find the perfect executive and what does it take to hire them?

Hiring the perfect executive can be a difficult task. From job postings to screening, there are many challenges associated with hiring an executive. Some of these include:

 

  1. Recruitment advertising is expensive
  2. Recruiting takes a large amount of time and money
  3. Posting ads online means limited access and high fees
  4. Pre-qualifying and pre-screening candidates is costly and time consuming

 

The main issue that presents itself when hiring an executive is the time and money that it takes. This is because there any many different steps required to hire the perfect executive.

The Steps

If you do decide to go through with hiring an executive without any assistance from an executive recruitment firm, then there are many steps that you must complete in order to find that perfect executive candidate. We took the time to briefly outline all of those steps below.

 

The Job

The first step in finding the perfect executive is crafting the perfect job description. This is an often overlooked aspect, but if you aren’t specific about the exact candidate that you’re looking for, then they may not apply for the position. Take your time to browse through other job postings and pay attention to the wording that they are using, as well as the qualifications they are seeking.

 

Searching

Once you have created the perfect job description, the search begins. You can begin reaching out to the different connections that you have, and sharing your job posting on different websites and groups. This way you will be able to get your job posting in the hands of the people that would be the perfect executive or know someone who would be. You will also have to post your job opening on different job websites and groups to ensure that people apply for the position. This part can get costly, thus it is important that you research the best websites to use for your industry.

 

Resumes/Applications

Although this task may seem simple, it is extremely tedious and time consuming. Many people will apply for your job posting, especially when your industry is as in demand as the hospitality industry. Having several applicants to choose from is always a good thing, but just because thousands of people apply, does not mean that they will all be the perfect candidate or even qualified. It is important to read through all the applications and resumes and then make piles for the ones you are interested in, ones you would like to learn more about, and the ones that unfortunately didn’t make the cut. This will make the process as quick and painless as possible.

 

Interviews

Interviews are a very important part of the hiring process. This is where you will learn more about the candidate and also be able to meet them and see who they are as a person. This is a great time to gauge how they will fit with the corporate culture at your corporation. Interviews for executives are lengthy and often times involve more than one interview. For some positions, companies sometimes hold 3 interviews before even contacting references to be sure that they are making the right decision in selecting this candidate.

 

Background Checks

Depending on the position, a background check may be necessary in order to hire a candidate. This process is not only lengthy; it is also expensive. This means that you must be very sure of a candidate prior to sending out their information for a background check.

 

Reference Check

Checking references is a great way to learn more about the potential hire and to see how they fit in at previous organizations. We recommend calling at least 2 individuals on their reference list and asking them what it was like to work with the candidate and would they want to work with them again.

 

Hiring Process

All of these steps can take up a lot of time and resources. There has to be a better way to save time, money, and headaches… but what is the solution?

Your business has become increasingly busy and with summer just around the corner, you’re finding it hard to keep up. You realize that you need someone to help turn things around. You need an executive who will really help lead the team and inspire your staff. You reach out to your existing connections and create a job posting, but no luck. You start to give up hope. You think you are being too picky, but rightfully so, when it comes to your business, you should never resort to settling for less! You want someone who meets your expectations and fits in with your company’s corporate culture… but where to start? Introducing HRWorldnet, your worldwide executive search and recruitment firm. We’ve got the tools of the trade to help you find just the executive you’ve been looking for!

Let’s face it, corporate culture is becoming increasingly important in this day and age. With many businesses in the industry, it is important to really set your business apart from the rest.

 

What is Corporate Culture?

A company’s corporate culture is the unique elements of your brand’s personality that identifies who you are and resonates with your staff. Whereas products, services, marketing, and even strategies can be replicated, corporate culture is what really differentiates your company from the next. Your business’ culture really defines the kind of environment that you want your employees to work in. Corporate culture can reside in the form of your company’s values, norms, practices, ethics, behaviors, beliefs, expectations, and goals. These things really guide how your employees think, feel, and act when making any decisions in regards to your company.

Why is Corporate Culture so Important to Have?

Whether you like it or not, corporate culture is vital to employees. Employees typically enjoy working for companies in which their personal values align with the company’s culture. When their values and goals are in sync with the company, they are more likely to be committed to the company and succeed in their careers. In fact, when a strong company culture is defined in an organization, employees tend to be more productive and find it easier to develop better relationships with their coworkers. On the other hand, if you work for a company that does not have a strong corporate culture or one in which you find you don’t fit in, it is likely you will not find as much pleasure in your work and therefore be less productive.

Benefits of Having a Strong Corporate Culture

Having a strong corporate culture is advantageous to your business and its operations in several ways:

In Defining Who You Are

Your company’s corporate culture says a lot about who you are, what you stand for, and what goals you are trying to achieve. Corporate culture involves understanding and communicating your company’s values and norms to both your staff and the public. Your organizational culture is a great way to set and maintain the expectations of your employees. Without a strong company culture, you’ll find that it can be very difficult to keep your company’s values consistent.

In Attracting and Retaining Staff

A strong company culture not only attracts new talent, it also helps to retain and drive the performance of your existing talent. When your staff believes that they truly belong to an organization, they are more likely to perform better and stick around for the long-run. This ultimately translates into fewer new hires, lower rates of turnover, and better chemistry with your team.

In How You’re Perceived

Your corporate culture also contributes immensely to your brand’s identity. For instance, if part of your company’s culture involves giving back to the local community, your customers will see you as a generous, compassionate brand that cares about the greater good of the community and not just making a profit. This is a great way to generate and attract more leads and gain customer loyalty.

 

In Conclusion

Your company is where your employees spend majority of their day. This is where they instill the company’s culture and communicate it in their work. With this being said, it’s important to ensure that your next hire is the perfect fit. We know how challenging of a task this can be!
