It this tight of a labor crunch you must go through the recruitment process as quickly as possible, but that doesn’t mean you should rush to a bad hire. Utilize reputable recruiting firms like PROPRIUS to identify, attract and hire the candidates you desperately need.

3.   Give Candidates a Chance

Sometimes, it is nearly impossible to find a person who fits your company’s bill perfectly. In these cases, ask your Hiring Managers which qualities are required for the position and which ones are “nice-to-have”. Finding the person who has mastered the required skills is important, but it is also important to give a candidate training opportunities as well. This shows candidates that your company is interested in their long-term success by making an investment in their future.

Certain candidates may not be ideal for the job you want done, but they might know people who are perfect for your company! Do not be afraid to tell candidates WHY they are not a good fit for a role. Once you do this and they understand why you are not moving forward ask if they know anyone who has the skill set you are needing.
