Many SMEs believe it is hard to compete with big corporations for highly skilled workers. In a market that’s confident and creating jobs, it’s little surprise people want to explore other opportunities. But as a business owner, how can you recruit and hold onto top talent?
At Hays, we work in partnership with SMEs to fulfill their hiring and recruitment needs across temporary, contract and permanent roles. We understand the hiring and staffing-related challenges SMEs face and are keen to share our knowledge and expertise with our SME clients.
That's why we've developed a series of SME specific articles which we invite you to explore.
One of the most difficult and yet the most important aspects of recruiting is the interview. Not many of us have much experience in this area and yet we rely heavily on this one hour to give us all the answers about a potential candidate.
You’d be amazed at the number of employers who contact us asking for help to find and engage their next employee without having a clear indication of exactly what they want.
Would you say the task of finding and engaging the right candidate for your vacancies is a challenge? Large organisations have greater resources and dedicated HR personnel and even then they still turn to recruiters.
Temporary, contract and freelance workers have become the new normal in SMEs as employers adopt headcount flexibility.
How new staff are managed into your SME – the onboarding process – can be the difference between an ultimately successful hire and one that is destined to fail.
