Many small business owners are stuck in a hiring loop. To save on payroll and training costs, many owners will wait until the last possible minute to start the hiring and recruiting process to fill open positions. Decisions on who to hire are made hastily, and often there is no time to conduct thorough employee background checks.
When you hire slowly, you also have an opportunity to collect more job applications, thus widening the hiring pool to include a better range of qualifications and abilities.
You are not limited to saying yes to only the first few applications that land on your desk. You now have the luxury of discretion to be able to say no to those applications, and wait for better applicants to apply.
Hiring quickly puts small business owners in a position of “hiring a warm body”. This is a phrase used at many retailers to describe an employee who has very little skill or productivity in the position they employ. It means the employee is there just to have someone employed. It does not mean that they are of any real use to the business, and are holding a spot until a better applicant comes by.
Because needing to have a position filled immediately does not pressure you, you can make sure that you are hiring a better caliber of applicant. This is reiterated by using pre employment screening and employee background checks to further show the quality of person you want to employ.
