Ways To Support Working Mothers In Your Organization | Staffing Agency South Florida

Here at Sloane Staffing, a staffing agency in South Florida, we believe 100% in work life balance and we know that balancing work with parenting duties can be a serious struggle. For new moms, making the transition back to work after maternity leave can be a difficult process. However, those organizations that go above and beyond in supporting working parents will benefit from a more loyal, engaged and happy workforce. So, how can you help working mothers in your organization?

1) Offer Remote Work- If you’re able to in your business, consider letting your employees work a proportion of hours from home each week. They can be in office for necessary meetings, but have the flexibility to be home in the mornings to see their children off to school, or pick them up when school lets out in the afternoon.

2) Increase Paid Maternity Leave- Paid maternity leave in the US is ranked as one of the lowest in the country. In Canada, new mothers can expect almost 15 weeks paid maternity leave, with some companies even offering a FULL YEAR. Let your new mother’s have a little extra time off and it will pay off in the end - you won’t be seeing yourself with a turnover issues every time someone in the office “drinks the water.”

3) Offer on-site perks- Mother’s hardly ever want to leave their children, if they are allowed to bring them in to the office, or if your office provides free day care on site where they can still watch over their loved ones, they will be much happier. On-site dry-cleaning, grocery delivery, car services - all of these are necessities for working professionals, but it's tough to get them done during work hours or when you have kids. Consider having these services outsourced for your employees.

The bottom line is, you should always be supportive of working mothers in your organization. If you have any questions about the above call us at 561.512.8989.

Let’s Review: Why Companies In South Florida Need To Leverage A Staffing Agency | IT Recruitment Company South Florida

Are you a company in South Florida that has no time to search for, interview, and hire candidates? Want to grow your business but just don’t have the resources to replace or hire new employees? Often, business owners who try to recruit on their own run into problems. They simply don’t have the time to conduct searches, review resumes, schedule interviews, check backgrounds, etc. Because of all of the time needed to find the perfect employee, it can be much easier to outsource this work to a recruiting agency, such as Sloane Staffing. 

At Sloane Staffing, we have the resources and can handle the full-time job that is recruiting for you. This includes, searching for that hard-to-find candidate, reviewing resumes and applications, conducting phone screenings, interviewing candidates, and checking backgrounds and references. We have also developed a deep network throughout our years of staffing and can reach candidates that hiring managers would not often be able to reach themselves. 

Staffing agencies also understand your needs which in turn can save you money. Staffing agencies are essentially a devoted human resources team. However, companies that use them save dramatically on overhead costs associated with staffing an in-house HR department. In addition, not every business needs a full-time, direct hire employee. Some only need part-time, temporary or short-term contract help. By going through a staffing agency, a business can avoid paying for employee services that exceed their actual needs.

If you are a company in South Florida that needs help with recruiting and hiring, contact Sloane Staffing today at 561.512.8989.

4 Ways To Assess Your Potential New Hire | Hiring Agency Delray Beach

Are you a company in Delray Beach who is currently hiring? If you need help from a local hiring agency, look no further than Sloane Staffing! We will send you qualified candidates based off of your hiring needs. During the interview process, here are our five favorite ways to assess your prospective hires!

1.       Read Their Body Language: From the moment the candidate walks in the door, let their body language do the talking. Look for things like posture, eye contact, and enunciation – these are all good indicators of a top candidate.

2.       Watch Closely How Candidates Interact With Non-Interviewers: We personally love to see new hires walking around the office, smiling and waving at other employees who might not necessarily be interviewing them. Or saying “thank you” when a door is held for them. A friendly exchange in pleasantries can make all the difference.

3.       Ask Off The Wall Questions, Or About Their Passions: It’s O.K. to divert away from the typical interview questions. You will be working with this new person for 40+ hours a week! Ask about their interests outside of work, and see if they line up with the other members of the organization. Check out this list of 20 off the wall interview questions for examples.

4.       Ask The Typical CEO Question: Try asking the hypothetical CEO question; “What would you do differently if you ran this company?” A candidate who gives candid feedback is usually a good hire. Who knows, you might learn something here!

If you are hiring in Delray Beach and need new ways to assess your potential new candidates, we hope these four ideas above help. For further information, feel free to reach out to Sloane Staffing, at 561-512-8989.

Finding the perfect employee for your company is time consuming. Here are the top four reasons why employers need a staffing agency to do all of that work for them.

1)      Staffing Agencies Leverage Their Network – staffing agencies are able to leverage their deep network of talent to find you the perfect new hire, fast. Quite often, the top talent in the industries don’t go searching for new jobs or even post their resumes on hiring sites such as Indeed. They have built relationships over the years with their recruiters and will rely on them to find new opportunities.

2)      Staffing Agencies Have The Resources – they have the tools and time it takes to hire a new candidate, such as reviewing resumes and applications, conducting phone and virtual screenings, and checking backgrounds and references

It is not uncommon to have an HR generalist attempting to hire a very specific and skilled IT employee, when that person doing the initial interviewing has absolutely zero experience in that field.

4)      Staffing Agencies Understand Your Needs – referring to the point above, here is where recruiters really stand out. Here at Sloane Staffing, we have worked these very technical jobs and have experience in these roles (often unlike your HR department.) We take the time to work with these candidates to understand if they are the right fit or not for your organization.

How To Respond To Illegal Interview Questions | Delray Beach Jobs Hiring

If you’ve recently landed one of the Delray Beach jobs that are hiring, or are going in for an interview in South Florida, it’s always a good idea to be over prepared to land the job. Unfortunately, you may experience some uncomfortable questions during your interview, and it’s best to know how to handle these situations. Any questions that bring up your age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, or religion are off-limits. An employer might ask you one of these (illegal) questions: 

-How old are you? Are you a baby boomer? 

-When did you graduate from high school? How long have you been working?

-Are you married? Is that a heterosexual or homosexual relationship? What does your husband/wife do for a living?

-Is English your native (first) language?

-Are you pregnant? Do you have any children? Do you plan to have children soon?

-What religious holidays do you practice? 

-What is your ethnicity? 

-What country are you from?

-Have you experienced any serious illnesses in the past year?

-Do you have any outstanding debt? 

-Do you socially drink? How’s your health?

Always remember that these questions are illegal for an interviewer to ask you and under no circumstance do you need to answer. We always suggest that it is best to refuse to answer the question. However, if you are comfortable with the interviewer, maybe you know this person or have met them before, and you believe their intentions are honorable, it’s OK to answer. We suggest practicing your answers to some of these questions before your interview in case they do come up. Remember, don’t be afraid to refuse to answer these questions when in an interview for a Delray Beach job that is hiring.

Three Ways To Ace Your Job Interview | Delray Beach Jobs Hiring

So you’ve landed a job interview with one of the coveted Delray Beach jobs that are currently hiring. Maybe you’ve been working with a staffing firm in Delray, such as Sloane Staffing, to help secure you the interview you’ve always wanted. If you are wondering what you can do to ace that big interview, here are just a few of our favorite tips.

1) Research and Role Play For The Interview

Prior to your interview, do some research about the company. Look them up online, research their competitors, learn about some of their recent accomplishments. Find out what you can so you aren’t walking in to the building completely blind about the company and what it is that they do. It’s also a good idea to practice for the interview. Whether that’s reciting some lines in front of the mirror by yourself, or using a friend to ask you some of the most common interview questions.

2) Dress To Impress

When doing research about the company, try and investigate what the culture and the dress code are like. Ask your recruiter you have been working with or the hiring manager you had a phone interview with how they would suggest you dress for the in-person interview. Even if their work environment seems business casual, and even if your interview is on “casual Friday,” you will still want to probably wear business formal attire on your first visit to the building. Remember, first impressions are everything! 

3) Follow Up After Your Interview

This may come as a surprise, but some people forget to follow up with a “thank you” after their interview. This can be done with a hand written note or a simple email. This step is crucial as skipping it can take you out of the running for the job. A thank you note also gives you the opportunity to touch on some points that weren’t discussed in the meeting, or even ask some questions you forgot to ask while you were in the building. We like Forbes’ ways to follow up after an interview.

Follow these steps above to ace your job interview and show those Delray Beach jobs hiring that you are a professional and you take your job seriously.

How Social Media Can Harm You In Your Job Hunt | Now Hiring Delray Beach

Everyone these days belongs to some form of social media site, be it Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. We know that what we post online is a direct reflection of ourselves to our followers, but have you ever thought about how those posts appear to your potential new boss, or even new team members? In addition to your resume, and phone/in-person interviews, your online presence completely represents you. And you better believe that jobs now hiring in Delray Beach will be searching for you on the Internet to insure that you are a good potential cultural fit. You don’t want a company that’s JUST about to extend an offer to you, Google you and find out what you are doing on the weekends with your friends. Not a good look! Unfortunately, social media can be great at un-doing all of your hard work with your job search. If a potential hiring manager sees something about you online that he/she does not like, it could cost you the next perfect opportunity. Remove any offensive content you may have on your sites. Keep the photos of yourself to a limited amount. You wouldn’t want to end up in an interview with your potential new boss asking you about certain posts you made online. It is also important to keep your LinkedIn account updated and that it actually matches what’s on your resume. You don’t want to be caught having to explain why your experience is all over the place. Trust us when we say that companies now hiring in Delray Beach will be trying to find anything they can about you online. Social media can be fun, but if you are not careful, it can also be detrimental in your job search.
