As an employer, you likely already know that there are certain responsibilities when it comes to your employees. There are the obvious ones, like payroll, taxation, and proper induction, and then there are some that may be industry-specific or unique to each individual organisation.
The recruitment and hiring process itself carries with it many employer responsibilities. The complexities of the hiring process can certainly be expedited and lessened with the assistance of a top recruitment agency. Using ’employment experts’ can unburden you of some of the more laboursome and frustrating processes associated with recruitment and hiring. However, as an organisation seeking new recruits, some responsibilities will still lie on your shoulders. Let’s take a look at what some of these responsibilities might be for businesses and organisations, and see how you can play a role in the process that ensures you get the best possible employees.
Be Clear About Your Requirements
When working with a recruitment agency, you have the benefit of access to hiring expertise. Your experienced recruitment agency will be highly focused on your organisation: dedicated to understanding your company values and goals as well as the exact requirements for the open positions. When consulting with your recruitment representative, the more information you can provide, the better. We want to make the best candidate-employer match for you, and the easiest way to do this is when we are given straightforward, clear requirements about what the position entails, what qualifications are necessary, and what you are looking for from a prospective employee. If you know what you want, your recruitment agency can help you find it.
Stay Organised, Keep Appointments, and Remain Communicative
For long term positions, a recruitment agency will typically do the majority of the sourcing and recruiting to find you your new employee. This may mean producing and publishing print and online job advertisements, conducting preliminary interviews, contacting references, and more. While your recruitment agency will handle these elements, it is vital that you are accessible and communicative, ready to provide needed information or discuss any matters relevant to the hiring search. The recruitment process can be quick and seamless, but it functions best when clients are engaged and organised. Open communication means queries are more swiftly answered and results achieved.
In the secondary set of candidate interviews, client representatives usually become more directly involved. With busy schedules, it can sometimes be difficult to coordinate these interview appointments. One major client responsibility is to keep these appointments and arrive promptly. Getting through the rounds of interviews makes the hiring process 100% more effective, and allows the recruiter to more quickly hone in on the ideal candidates for your organisation.
Provide Straightforward Feedback
Following the interview process or an initial hire, it is important for the client to provide honest and clear feedback regarding the candidates. At On Line Recruitment and Labour Hire, we are highly confident in our ability to match the best, talented candidates with the right business client. However, sometimes finding the perfect candidate can be more challenging, and we depend on straightforward client feedback to let us know we’re on the right track. If a group of candidates does not meet your expectations or requirements, giving us feedback is instrumental in helping us redouble our efforts and zero in on the candidate you’re looking for.
We Love Making Clients Happy
The few employer responsibilities outlined above are easy to fulfil, and our amazing clients consistently impress us with their dedication, organisation, and drive. We know they are keen to find those perfect new employees for their business. And so are we. Together, we at On Line Recruitment and Labour Hire will work hard to source the top available candidates, making excellent matches that are mutually satisfying to both clients and job-seekers.
