7 Simple Ways To Streamline Your Interview Process

When it comes to recruiting, time is of the essence. When someone leaves, it can take a long time to find a replacement. Here are some ways you can fine tune your interview process.

1) Start with an accurate job description. Make sure your job title is clear and contains keywords ideal candidates would search for.

2) Make Your Job Postings Easy To Find. Be sure to regularly update your company’s website and Linked/Facebook profiles so both candidates and recruiters know exactly what you’re looking for.

3) Prepare! Be sure to prepare interview questions ahead of time. Use your job description to draft interview questions, but also refer to the candidate’s CV for more questions like why did they leave the previous company after only 6 months?

4) Connect with candidates before in-person interviews. It’s OK to reach out to candidates prior to their in-person interviews with questions via phone, email, or even LinkedIn.

5) Get logistics in order. Book the place where you intend to do the interview. Plan a private space for the entire duration of the interview and add on an extra 30 minutes in case it goes long. And, be sure to check that everyone, even the candidate’s, calendars are clear during that time for the interview.

6) Select the right interviewers. Make sure you have key team members, who will be working alongside this employee, in the first (and hopefully only) in-person interview.

7) Don’t waste time with your decision. If your team knows they want this candidate, it’s OK to offer the job on the spot. Don’t dwell or you could lose them, it is an ideal candidate market right now!

Employee Feedback: Why It Should Be A Top Priority In Your Office | Digital Marketing Job Website

Sloane Staffing is a Digital Marketing Job Website and we often love to post content on how to “up your office game.” People always wonder if employee feedback is important in their work environment, and we say absolutely YES! So important in fact that you should make this a priority in your company. Providing feedback, both positive and negative, is a key element in sustaining employees through the employee life cycle. We know it can be tough to give negative feedback, such as constructive criticism and even dishing things out like suspensions. That’s why you should come prepared to the conversation you are going to have with your employee. Make sure you think about what you are going to say and don’t rush the conversation if you are not ready. Be sure to also tailor your feedback to the individual, each person receives feedback differently and the more you know about your employees the better able you are to improve their performance. It can also help to quantify your performance - come prepared with stats, data, policies etc. to share and make your point. Also let the employee share, allow them a chance to comment and provide information. It can also help to make the feedback less personal by not using “you.” Don’t wait too long to give the employee feedback after something has happened, so you can comment on exactly what needs to be changed. And when the employee does make a change, be sure to vocalize that you recognize and appreciate the change. Remember, it’s important to give feedback to your employees on a regular basis. You will feel better and believe us, your employees will feel and appreciate your sincerity. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us at 561-512-8989.

Unlimited PTO: Is It Right For Your Company And Your Employees? | IT Recruitment Company South Florida

Here at Sloane Staffing, an IT Recruitment company in South Florida, we work with a lot of companies on the smaller size (around 50 employees) that don’t always have established HR teams. We get a lot of questions from CEO’s and owners of companies about establishing the best health insurance and benefits possible for their employees. One question we hear all the time is “What is unlimited paid time off, and is it right for my employees?” First, let’s define the term “unlimited PTO.” Just as the name suggests, an unlimited PTO policy is a vacation policy in which employees are not given a predetermined number of days off. Employees can take as many vacation, sick, personal, or mental health days as they need, so long as their manager approves their time off. While unlimited PTO can act as a strong recruiting tool, it’s up to the business owner to decide if offering this to their employees makes sense for their business. A lot of times, unlimited PTO can be a good thing - it can act as a retention tool to retain those top employees you don’t want to lose. There’s also no rush to take unused vacation days at the end of the year, so you won’t have any empty office come December 12th. The policy can also be easily abused. If an employee chooses to abuse the unlimited PTO policy, you might have a hard time terminating them for being absent because they are allowed that time off. It’s up to you to decide what works best for your business. If you have any questions about this, don’t hesitate to contact us at 561-512-8989.

LinkedIn is your place to brag about your work accomplishments! Add any tools, languages, skills, or certifications you have to your profile. If you need help, here are some tips and tricks to updating your profile. Also, reach out to people in your network and ask them for recommendations. Your friends online can vouch for your hard work, and can say you have strong skills in one area or another. In addition, it’s important to have a good LinkedIn profile photo. We highly recommend having your picture taken by a professional, trust us - this makes all the difference. Seeing you in a suit in front of a good background is much more appealing than a selfie you took on your iPhone. When uploading the your photo ensure you name it yourname.jpg - this will ensure it returns on the first page of Google and also in Google image searches when your name is entered.

Should Your Office Be CPR Certified? | Help Employing South Florida

If you own a business that is working to help employ South Florida, then the fast and easy answer to this question is yes. Most people spend the majority of their time at their workplace, and it’s possible they could have a heart attack at work. If something like this occurs, will you as management or anyone in your office know what to do? If someone in your office is having cardiac arrest, their life could depend on whether or not someone knows cardiopulmonary resuscitation. CPR is a great asset to have in your office. If you are not comfortable giving mouth to mouth resuscitation to someone else in the office, you can learn hands-only CPR. Here’s why office workers should be trained in CPR.

Learning How To Perform CPR Is Easy. In one easy class, your office can learn how to perform CPR. Check out the American Red Cross to sign up, their classes are trusted, affordable and convenient.

Knowing CPR Could Save A Life. Each year, thousands of people have cardiac arrest in the United States. These heart problems often occur where they spend the most of their time: in the office. CPR can help with keeping the person’s blood circulating until an emergency responder arrives. If there isn’t someone in your office who knows CPR, the person affected by cardiac arrest unfortunately has a decreased chance of survival.

You Can Become A Greater Asset To Your Office. Knowing CPR can potentially make you more valuable in your office - you know how to save a life! You will be an asset to someone who is in need of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Knowing CPR is a valuable skill you can add to your resume.

5 Hiring Trends To Watch In 2019 | Company Filling Positions Boca Raton

Are you a company filling positions in Boca Raton? Is your goal for 2019 to build out your teams? If you want the best workers this year, here are the top 5 hiring trends we at Sloane Staffing predict for 2019.

  1. Build A Talent Pool. A talent pool is a group of highly-qualified candidates who are interested in working for your company. This will ensure you always have access to candidate’s updated resumes. Read more about how to create one here.

  2. Streamline Your Application Process. Quality candidates will drop out of your application process if it’s too long and confusing. Save the questions for the in-person interview, getting them in the door is most important. Make it easy for them to apply for jobs. Nowadays, people don’t want to fill out pages and pages of application forms. They want fast results and to be able to apply for jobs on the move. Make sure they are able to apply for your jobs on their mobile devices.

  3. Candidates Are No Longer Hired Based Off Of Their Degrees. Times have changed. In some cases, experience is preferred over an actual degree. One survey found that 45.8% of hiring professionals measure success on candidate experience. Take that into consideration.

  4. Use Social Media As A Recruiting Tool. With LinkedIn and LinkedIn recruiter being the obvious ones, social media is a great way to attract good candidates. We pick up a lot of talent through both LinkedIn and Facebook.

  5. Target Passive Candidates. One of the biggest trends we see is that the best candidates are not always necessarily open to new opportunities. However, once we explain the position and the benefits of the new job, they start to see it as their next role. Hire a staffing agency to help you sell these top candidates. Try re-targeting with an email campaign.

How To Turn Your Temporary Hire Into A Top Employee | Tech Company Staffing West Palm Beach

Here at Sloane Staffing, a tech company staffing West Palm Beach, we’ve noticed a trend: hiring temporary or “contract” workers, become increasingly popular. Hiring a temp, or a contractor, is a great way to test out the employee to make sure they fit with the company culture and can do the job they say they can, before bringing them on to the payroll permanently. It can be tough to land a good hire this way though, because a lot of candidates don’t want to leave their full time job if their next role is not a sure thing. It’s important to make contractors feel like they are just as much a part of the team as the rest of the organization. If you want to turn a temp, into a great full-time employee, there are a few things you can do. First, set clear expectations with the contractor. Don’t lie to them, and be transparent about their role, their salary, and if they will have the opportunity or not to become a full-time employee at your company. Temps are usually ambitious, and will go above and beyond what is expected of them. Also, be sure to provide lots of opportunities for them. This includes networking and learning opportunities. Provide the same training to a contractor you would a full-time employee. Also, show them recognition and support. By including them, they will want to join your organization just as much as you want to bring them on. With regards to day-to-day work, small and frequent recognition can go a long way to retaining your best-performing temporary workers. We hope these tips help you turn your temporary hire into a top employee at your company. If you need help from a tech company staffing West Palm Beach, contact us today at 561.512.8989.

Why Aren't Candidates Applying For Your Jobs? | Executive Recruiters South Florida

Executive recruiters in South Florida see it ALL the time: hiring managers are frustrated that candidates are not applying to their jobs. We are here to help with that. Partnering with a staffing agency, such as Sloane Staffing, will allow you to not only receive more resumes for the jobs you are hiring for, but more qualified resumes. When you reach out to a recruiter to help you with your candidate search, be sure to fully optimize the job description. What does this mean exactly? Here are our top reasons why your job description is not fully optimized:

  1. The Job Description Is Poor. Beef up that description so candidates aren’t guessing what they are going to be doing for a living. Including as much information as you can will also help to weed out unfit candidates who may be applying. Format is also important. Do not write the job description out as one long paragraph, no one will take the time to read that. Break it out into paragraphs, or sections. We suggest bullet points, like this: https://www.indeed.com/hire/how-to-write-a-job-description

  2. Pay Rate Is Not Included. Candidates will most likely breeze over your job if you don’t include pay rate, whether it be hourly or salary. You would want to know too just how much money you would be making if you were apply for a new job! It’s also important to include commonly asked questions, such as paid time off, holidays, sick time, work hours, etc.

  3. The Job Description Is Wrong. Well maybe not wrong, but in the eyes of the candidate it’s not exactly what they are looking for. Be careful in what words you choose to use, or candidates may never find your job description in their search. For example, customer service representatives may be looking for jobs with the title “Customer Support Specialist” or “Customer Experience Agent.”

If you need help optimizing your job descriptions, reach out to Sloane Staffing today at 561.512.8989.

Why Getting The Right Customer Service Representatives Is Important For Your Business | Employ South Florida

As we employ South Florida here at Sloane Staffing, one of the roles we often see filled too early is the customer service role. Although this role tends to be a lower salaried position, it is of the utmost importance that hiring managers and companies follow through with the same thorough hiring process as any other position. If you don’t have time to follow through on this process, it might behoove you to reach out to a staffing agency to have a recruiter help you. Your customer service team members are the first employees your clients interact with. They are the first impression of your company to the world. It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in, you need a good quality customer service team. And in times of need, your customers depend on you for service. With an emphasis on customer service, you gain a competitive advantage on your customer. There are also financial incentives for providing outstanding customer service. Store support estimates it costs at least six times more to gain a new customer than to retain one you already have. The best customer service also builds trust. People will stay loyal to you and repeat buy if they have a good experience. To get the best experience for your clients, you may have to pay a little bit more to hire the best customer service reps. But we promise you, this will be better in the end, resulting in es turn over and hires. In addition, poor customer service can lead to bad reviews online, which you never want! Word of mouth is so important. Without your customers, you wouldn’t have a business! So treat them the best possible way you can, with their first interaction with your company being the best one.

Are You Including Your Temporary Employees in Your Company Culture Enough? | Staffing Delray Beach

We know from personal experience and through staffing Delray Beach that more often than not, companies do not include their temporary employees enough in their company culture enough. This can be a huge issue because if your want to get the most out of your temporary workforce, you and your team should make every effort to include temporary employees in your company culture. Your temp workers will not only feel more included and integrated into your company, but they will gain respect for their management and the company as a whole. Think about it: if you expect your temp employees to be as integrated as you perm employees, than you should be treating them all the same. Also, temporary employees often turn into full-time employees anyway! Set a good example for your full time workers, and be sure to include temp workers in any company wide meetings, town halls, happy hours, etc. Also, ask your full time employees how the teams might better include the temp workers. It might not hurt to check reviews of your company on sites such as Glassdoor to see what your temporary employees are saying about you. Word about an employer spreads fast these days, especially with social media and employer review sites. If you make your temporary employees feel like outsiders, they may be quick to share their experience through anonymous posts and reviews. Make it a habit to read through your reviews, you might learn a thing or two!

Partner with Sloane Staffing today! Call us at 561.512.8989 to find out how we can help your company. We’ve been staffing Delray Beach for quite some time now and would love to help you and your company include your temporary workers more into your company culture.

Follow our four simple tips below to get you off on the right foot, from day one!

Introduce Yourself to People. Your first few months should be spent getting to know your co-workers and management team. If you want to make a great first impression, try introducing yourself at the watercooler or using the on-site facilities such as the gym to meet new people.

Be Proactive. Develop a routine from day one and offer to jump in and help anywhere you can. Your new co-workers will love to see you take initiative, and so will your new boss! Take notes when possible, and don’t wait for someone to tell you what to do. Pay attention and don’t hesitate to ask questions.

Understand Organizational Structure. Try to understand the larger picture of your organization. You should know who your team is and who you report to, but take it one step closer by researching your leadership team, and if possible, reach out to them to introduce yourself. You will be surprised, some might even entertain a lunch with “the new guy!”

Show How You Can Be Dependable. In addition to being proactive, reach out and ask where you can help – and follow that through. It will speak volumes in your first few months if you can help your team be more productive.

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.

Overcoming Fear When Putting In Your Notice | Hiring Agency Delray Beach

As a hiring agency in Delray Beach, we hear it all the time – and we get it. Mustering up the courage to tell your current employer you are leaving can be nerve-wracking. It can be exciting to receive a job offer from a new company, but scary to tell your boss you’re leaving. To lessen the fear that goes along with giving your notice, you must first remember that you are not letting anyone down. It can be very common to feel like you are disappointing your manager or co-workers, but this simply is not the case. Don’t let them pressure you into feeling this way, they should be proud of you and excited for your new opportunity.  Also, be sure to give your notice the proper way, at least two weeks in advanced. Tell them you will be with the company for the next two weeks and will be happy to wrap up any projects you are working on or train a new hire if they replace you. Don’t forget to thank your employer for all they have done for you. We recommend a simple hand written note. Even if you did not like your job, chances are you still learned something and those skills helped you land this new, these can go a long way. And you never know, you may cross paths with these people again so it’s important to leave on a good note.  It should be exciting that you are taking on a new role. And be just that –excited! It is a great accomplishment to land a job and beat out other qualified candidates. You should be proud of yourself. We know that leaving a position can be uncomfortable or even awkward, but amazing things can happen when you try something new. Contact us anytime at Sloane Staffing, 561-512-8989.
