Making the right hiring decisions now to meet your end-of-year goals
As colorful autumn leaves adorn the trees and stores begin to replace the Halloween candy with decorations for the holidays, the dizzying realization that the year is almost over starts to sink in. How will you prepare your company for 2023? Is your team fully staffed?
If you have open positions on your team, don’t wait until next year to hire – you may want to consider making strategic hiring decisions right now. There are many reasons to hire now; you will have access to top talent with less competition from other companies and your team can take time during the slower holiday season to train new team members. In addition, sometimes it takes a long time to make the right hiring decision. It may be best to start the process ear
1. You will get ahead of the hiring boom a new year brings.
Many companies wait for a new year to make hiring decisions, leading to more competition for the best talent. Why not advertise your new position right now – or even better – work with a recruiter to select the perfect fit for your team while the market for top talent is not as competitive!
2. The holidays tend to bring a slower pace to the workplace.
Unless you are in retail, shipping, or in the consumer electronics space and you’re prepping for CES (the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas), things tend to slow down during the holidays. This will give you more time to train your new staff, so they are ready to dive in at the beginning of the year. With less meetings and fewer calls on the docket, your new team members will have plenty of time for onboarding so they can be fully prepared to do a great job.
3. Some roles take a long time to fill.
This scenario is all too familiar to many of us: post an open position online, sift through resumes and conduct interviews round after round…only to be left with an ongoing vacant position at the end. (But did you know that when you work with a recruiter this is less likely to happen?)
Unfortunately, making the right hiring decision takes time. If you start the process now, you have the best chance of extending an offer and having an excellent candidate in place in time for the new year. Additionally, when you work with us, our recruitment team can speed up the hiring process for you.
