Employees are hard to come by these days, especially if the job market is tight. It’s no longer possible to just post a wanted sign and wait for people to line up at your door. Employers have to think outside the box and come up with creative ways of hiring new staff. In the competitive recruitment environment hiring can occur in the most unexpected places. Nowadays employers recruit constantly, even of they don’t have an opening. They keep a shortlist of potential candidates just in case. What’s more, managers started thinking beyond the traditional group of employees they had always hired. Their shortlists can be filled with names of former employees, students, older workers, people who only want to work part-time or telecommute. One interesting way of hiring people is turning your employees into headhunters. High-quality performers are asked to refer people they know who could make good job candidates. Word-of-mouth referrals are a goldmine for employers. Managers believe that this is a reliable and trustworthy source of finding top-notch candidates. They believe in it so much that they are willing to offer cash bonuses to any employee within the firm that successfully recruits someone to work for the company as long as they stay more than three months. From the employer’s point of view allowing staff to assist in recruiting people builds a sense of empowerment. People who participate in the selection process are committed to helping the new employee succeed. Building an effective team is no doubt a challenge and a daunting job for any business. Any tactic is good as long as the manager finds an efficient and loyal employee.
