5 Great Ways Small Business Can Find and Hire Good People (Part 2)

Prior to this article you should have already looked at the first two points of the five great ways small businesses can find and hire good people. This important topic features some of the hiring practices that Maid to Please, serving Kernersville and surrounding areas, uses when selecting top-quality people for their professional cleaning service.

So let’s look at the next three ways that small businesses can find and hire good people in the Kernersville area.

3. Offer existing employees a bonus for referring people.

People traditionally hang out with people of like minds and personality, so if you trust your current employee’s judgment, resolve and attitude; chances are they hang out with quality people that might be looking for employment.

An incentive will encourage them to look within their set of friends and acquaintances to look for people that will not only uphold your Kernersville company’s standards, but people they already have an established relationship with.

NOTE: Often people will not refer friends for employment that they do not feel that they can trust, with the mindset that, they might be held responsible for the failure of that potential employee. It is this reason why a good recommendation from a quality employee can go a long way.

4. Download an application template

No reason to re-create the wheel, utilize a downloadable application template that asks standardized questions that is customizable to your specific needs for your Kernersville area business. With that template, you can upload an application to your website in a downloadable PDF, re-created in a form generator for online use or as a handout in your office. As part of your application information you want to always stipulate a probation period sufficient to prove the person is a good fit for your team and make sure to check references!

Note: Many states have guidelines in reference to the amount of information that they are allowed to give out about a previous employee; so don’t get frustrated if you not getting the answers you’re looking for. For many states, they allow employers to reveal that the candidate did indeed work there and how long… but, are not allowed to identify the job performance of the candidate. There is one question, in these cases, that you are allowed to ask: “Would you hire that person back?” … Often times, the answer to this question will tell you know what you need to know.

5. Get a criminal background check

Many towns and municipalities in and around the Kernersville area provide free or low cost criminal background checks.  Sometimes it’s simply identifies that the person has a criminal record but is not specific as to the crime and severity; for those a paid service may be required.

Note: Sometimes the Internet can be quick reference source to this type of information. There are many watchdog services that provide criminal records for felonies online. A simple search of the name and the towns listed from the application may reveal important information to help you with your decision.
