5 Great Ways Small Business Can Find and Hire Good People (Part 1)

If you are a small business owner in the Kernersville area you know how difficult it can be to find and hire quality people. While there are many job search sites such as: Craigslist, ziprecruiter.com, monster.com, and jobs.com; they can often produce under or over qualified applicants.

Often for local businesses looking for quality people, old-school or traditional methods can yield the best results.

This is an area where the management professionals at Maid to Please Cleaning Services has learned to excel. Our high quality standards relies on finding and retaining quality personnel.

In this article let’s examine 5 great ways for small business in the Kernersville area to find and hire good people.


1. Advertise that you are hiring on your website

While this might be a no-brainer, it’s one that many often forget. Having the visibility of a hiring message on your current website will not only allow potential applicants to see your need for quality employees, but also allows for your Kernersville customers to help spread the message well. There is also a psychological advantage to posting this message on your website: it lets customers know that your business is successful and growing.

If you have a content or featured message slider at the top of your site, this is a great place to put an attractive banner. You might also consider putting an employment tab on your menu to keep a steady stream of applicants sending information in for review.

Online applications – Having an online application is a great idea however, you must use a little caution. Transmitting personal and sensitive information through a website that is not set up with proper levels of security and encryption can open you up to possible lawsuits for breach of information.

Options to gather that information safely would be:

  • If you have a downloadable .pdf that they can print and fax back (the safest way)

  • Create a form that gathers information that simply identifies their name and level of interest. (No Social Security numbers, birthdates or work history) You would then contact that individual to come in for an application.

  • Have your site set up with a SSL certificate for transmission of secure and encrypted data. (This does not relieve you from the responsibility of properly handling personal information)

By utilizing the tools that you already have (your website) you can help attract and screen prospective applicants without costing you out-of-pocket expenses.

2. Create magnetic signs for your service vehicles

If your business already has a fleet of vehicles within the Kernersville community providing services, why not use that square footage to get the message out about your need for quality people! Here’s a few tips for car magnets:

  • Buy local and buy quality. Many of the magnets that you get dirt cheap online are cheap for a reason. They often use a paper/vinyl blend that usually only lasts a couple of months in the Kernersville area weather.

  • Treat the area under the magnet with wax. Magnets retain moisture and will cause surface rust on your vehicle.

  • Don’t put the entire job posting on the magnet. A common mistake with vehicle magnets is when you try to put too much information in a small area; if you can’t read it going down the road at 55 mph is not going to do you a lot of good. Keep the message simple: “were hiring”.
