3 Tips to hire employers after Covid

3 Tips to hire employers after Covid

Hiring for these jobs is on the rise in 2021
Are you looking to bring in a new workforce after coronavirus? Here are some steps and processes to consider.

Where are you recruiting?

It depends on your location, the nature of your business, and in some instances, what kind of recruits you want. Sometimes platforms, such as Indeed, LinkedIn, or ZipRecruiter, work. Other times, Craigslist or social media posts are a better fit. You might benefit from some trial and error — or work with an HR support organization to take care of these tasks for you.

How will you interview?

You have 2 options: in-person or remote.
The biggest difference during coronavirus is that a lot more small businesses will be interviewing remotely even for what will eventually be an in-person position. After all, if you end up needing to interview 10 people to find the one, that’s a lot of unnecessary in-person exposure. The most popular option for virtual chats of any kind has been Zoom, although Skype also remains popular. An old-fashioned phone interview can also work. It’s all about what feels best to you and what might be most appealing to the ideal candidate.

What about training?

Onboarding training might be an opportunity to start new hires remotely if you can provide video training modules. However, that’s not the right fit for every position — or employee. If you’re hiring for a position that requires a lot of interaction, a candidate might want that job because they don’t have to spend a lot of time alone looking at a screen.

 Again, consider the final parameters of the role. Virtual onboarding training is a natural fit if the job is completely or mostly remote. If the role isn’t, you might want to adopt the latest safety procedures and restart your in-person onboarding process.

These are only the first steps to be able to incorporate new employees to your company. Once you have decided on these item, the hiring process continues. You will have to deal with legal issues, and other things that require time, and money. But don’t worry. Fortunately, there are companies like ROOTS that are in charge of making the hiring process more effective: saving time and money. Do you want to know more about us? Contact Us

While many software developers work full time, according to the BLS, there are also part-time opportunities for those who want to work on an hourly or contractual basis.

One of the biggest misconceptions is that time spent at your desk is equivalent to success and that people are less effective when they’re not working in the office.

One of the biggest misconceptions is that time spent at your desk is equivalent to success and that people are less effective when they’re not working in the office. Performance and success can no longer be thought of in terms of face time or the number of hours worked. Instead, the focus should be on how an employee matches up to the clear expectations set by a manager at the onset. The end result is truly what drives an organization.
How to guide your employers to get to it? Here some tips:

Set specific metrics

To accurately and efficiently measure results, managers must set specific and clearly defined metrics for their teams. Hard deadlines, set numbers, and solid output goals are major elements that make a results-focused model work. When specific metrics are set for individual employees it provides them with the structure needed to meet their goals allowing the results to speak for themselves as a point for evaluation.

Encourage open and empathetic communication

In a remote or hybrid work setting, there is a need for empathetic and open communication from leadership and team members. This is especially important right now during pandemic times, with the lines between personal and professional life totally blurred. Remember people are humans first and employees second. Lead with empathy and try to really understand who your people are and what they need—step into your colleague’s shoes and understand that life comes up. Having empathy in communication allows for employees to be heard, feel appreciated, and overall, be more productive.

Avoid continuous check-ins

It is crucial that all leaders instill good management practices to ensure their teams are on the right track and don’t feel they need to prove their worth with “chair time” and the number of hours they are “online.” Although very few leaders would own up to micromanaging, employees often feel otherwise. Working in a results-focused model takes away some touchpoints that managers might be used to for monitoring the process. While checking in over the course of the project is important, managers should avoid being overbearing if they want to truly reap the benefits of this flexible work style.

 

Provide actionable feedback

In a results-focused workplace, it is imperative for managers to provide feedback on the results produced. Since the attention is shifted away from the overall process, evaluation needs to be based on employee output. The feedback itself needs to be actionable and based on performance metrics that were set forth at the onset.

By evaluating employees based on results produced over hours spent, companies can create a highly driven workplace with increased employee output, improved team rapport, and a flexible company culture. Additionally, a principle benefit of the results-focused workplace is the culture that it creates, allowing work to naturally be part of life, not a separate thing.
