So, your workplace might be lacking some skilled workers in a certain area or two, or you may be someone who’s recently opened up a business and want to know what kind of skills you’re going to need. Either way, the answer remains very much the same, and we’re going to go into a little more detail about them below. Hopefully we can help you to stop your recruitment process becoming stale and inefficient, and change it to suit what you need, when you need it!
Expertise in Company Operations
You need someone with business acumen under their belt. Someone who’s trained in communications, and knows how to present, reach out to, and impress the investors and/or customers that come through your door.
This is a person who can listen, who can vocalise everything they need to say, as well as write it out clearly and concisely in an email. These are talents you’ll want to hold onto, as a bit of charisma, and a bit of understanding about your organisation, is what really makes your employee team tick.
Because when someone knows what they’re doing, even when they’ve never worked for you before, they’re a keeper! They’ve clearly got the qualifications, and a bit of expertise on their side, and they can apply that to your need to streamline operations within your workplace.
Someone Who Can Do the Heavy Lifting
The heavy lifting is something most workers seem to dread; we could put our backs out, or hurt our arms and legs, and if you’re not trained in working a stock room or managing a warehouse, it can be hard to face these tasks every day.
Which is why it’s important you have someone more capable on your team, so keep an eye out for people who have something like an ewp licence listed on their resume. If they’re able to operate tools and machinery, you’ll be able to depend on them.
The Drive to Never Give Up
Motivation is key to success. If you’re someone who doesn’t feel passionate about work, even when you love what you do or you really embrace a challenge, it can be hard to fill that need for drive within the workplace. So, you’re going to need to keep an eye out for self possessed, motivated people, who know what it takes to get the job done.
All in all, if you’ve got an employee or two who will never give up, your workplace will be automatically geared for success. Because these people really are the type to take on whatever the day throws at them, and they’re perfect for training courses and/or sending out to business events or conferences.
So, how can you change your hiring process? Well, it’s simple! Because in order to fill the spaces in your company you need to know what to look for. Keep that in mind as people come back to work, or you look to expand in the future.
