Top Secrets to Become the Best Recruitment Managers

Do you know key secrets for recruitment managers?

Recruitment managers are responsible not only for hiring right persons but their engagement and productivity. It is important to use experiences from top business leaders to help your talents succeed. These advices will help you to understand deeply what employees really need and how to help them bring valuable results.

Brief overview of top advices

Julia Hu, CEO of Lark, young company in California, advises hiring the entire personality, not just the geek. Employees prefer to know that the employer values their skills, growth and appreciate them as a person. Talents look for culture fit, good people around, great products and services and desire to have interesting responsibilities.

Also, many top recruiters advise joining meetings where appropriate IT candidates hang out because you may discuss new job possibilities in informal conversation. Erik Kostelnik, vice president at a San Francisco startup Identified, says that industry events help them to ensure that they’re out there in the press.

Rob Schmults, a senior VP at Intent Media, suggests that big data is attractive for employees to join their team. Also, remote possibilities may engage new staff and many HR managers believe that it’s almost expected now.

Remember to develop your own talents and help them to gain technical and soft skills. Fulfill your pipeline for the future goals because there is a huge gap in the talent pool of computer scientists and software engineers. For example, Intent Media created campus recruitment to be proactive.

Give your employees a small, well-defined area of responsibility

You have to clearly communicate to each employee about the job goals. When you give them a small part of work and lead them step by step, it is more efficient than challenge staff with the big unknown field of work. Deep understanding is important to be productive and show good results.

The well-defined area allows growing fast, becoming better and gaining appropriate knowledge and skills. It helps to eliminate frustration as well. Scientists proved that people can be focused only on few things at the same time. In addition, each big task will be divided into small parts to work on the project. To help your employees hold their attention, you may use Forest app or other pomodoro timers that help to stay focused.

Well-known psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi suggests that increasing complexity improves productivity. When a task is challenging but relevant to your skills, you will work in a flow — state when you create things with a pleasure and it brings a great result.

You need to leave a good level of personal involvement in all aspects of your team

To create a really productive performance management process that boosts results, growth, and success, you have to get each employee involved. Having informed and engaged workers will deliver great participation rates and better quality of work.

Christie Bell, the firm’s director of human resources, advises telling each team member what’s going on in the company to increase engagement. If employees feel free to share their thoughts about the company, this encourages an atmosphere where talents understand that they have a real voice. Especially, young people desire to be treated as active participants and collaborators. In many cases, they have a clear vision how to improve the workflow and what they need in the workplace. Also, it is important to develop rules employees will believe in. You need to make them motivated to follow these principles and explain why these rules are critical.

Use non-monetary motivators, aside from the paycheck and make the company a place that employees are proud to be associated with. For example, when workers align their values with the company’s morals, they’re highly motivated.

Show how the daily assignments make sense and try to give employees work that really matters instead of having them provide meaningless tasks. Ensure that they know the value of their job and how it connects to the bigger picture.
