Even individuals who have never had the opportunity to visit the State of Florida recognize the City of Orlando, but not only because of theme parks and beautiful weather, but because of the wealth of talent and successful companies based in the Orlando area. Many recognized organizations such as AAA, Hard Rock Cafe, Olive Garden, Universal Orlando, and LongHorn Steakhouse call Orlando home, but while people may not need reminding what makes the city of Orlando beautiful and fun, employers may not be aware of the advantages of recruiting in Orlando.
Have you ever wondered why some companies seem to attract top talent, again and again? Have you ever wondered why your organization may have high turnover? Aside from the position and salary, there is something else at play that is a powerful force in attracting top talent to a job — and keeping them.
So what is it?
Work culture. Having a positive, engaging, and supportive work culture can make a huge difference for current and potential employees.
If you want to learn how to attract top talent, use these tips as a guide:
We've all been there. Fed up with a service or product that we paid good money for. You call the customer service phone number and play Customer Service Representative Roulette, hoping your call lands on someone who is understanding and can help you resolve your issue. If you are unlucky and get a representative who is not either of those things, your feelings towards this particular company will sour.
That's why customer service representatives are so important to a company's image. For some companies, the only interactions with the clients are through these individuals. Customer serivce representatives need to be confident, calm, patient and knowedgeable of their company's products and services.
Interviewing candidates is an incredibly important task. You want to find the person whose experience, skills and personality fit your company best. If you don’t prepare for the interview or pay attention to the job candidate, then you could end up missing out on the perfect employee. If this is your first time interviewing job candidates, then don’t stress out about it too much. As long as you prepare yourself, you will be fine. Here are a number of tips you should keep in mind in order to help you conduct a successful job interview:
Have you ever met with a candidate who had the perfect resume, excellent experience, perfectly-matched skills and said all of the right things in the interview but your gut still said “don’t hire them?” Recently, I was part of a team working on a high-level executive search. We had hundreds of candidates interested in the position but only a few met our hiring criteria. One candidate in particular looked perfect. The resume was a model which could have been used as our job description. In a panel-style interview, this candidate was poised, provided thoughtful answers with brevity and clarity and was completely comfortable with their surroundings. Not a single bead of sweat rolled down their face as they zapped every tough question from the committee of 7. A presentation followed. One of the best we’ve seen. A perfect performance.
Recruiting great talent is hard work. Many managers think they can post a job on a national job board, then kick back and let the amazing applications flow in. If you’ve tried a job posting recently, then you know this is far from the truth. Many of these applicants do not meet even the basic hiring criteria. Finding exceptional talent in today’s environment takes research, outreach and some ingenuity.
“Temp-to-Hire or Direct Hire?” This is one of the most often asked questions by hiring managers when utilizing the services of a Tampa staffing company. Both are great options with many factors to consider.
Without a doubt, the last several years have been a hiring manager's market. An open position could easily command 100 or more qualified applicants and competition for available work was fierce. Employers had certain luxuries and a substantial advantage over those seeking work. Companies could seemingly command highly qualified, or even over-qualified employees at lower wages than in past times. They had their choice among a large pool of potential employees -- applicants eager to find a job and willing to work for less compensation. The best employment agencies Tampa Fl had to offer were flooded with shining resumes.
Clerical staff members are often the unsung heroes of successful businesses, so finding the right person to fill your available clerical position is critical. Using a Tampa staffing agency to fill your clerical staffing needs is a good way to connect with talented job seekers. You can also use the following clerical staffing strategies to screen and select the right clerical candidate.
Hiring processes vary from company to company and even from hiring manager to manager. Most include an application, face-to-face interview and some kind of background / reference check. While these are all very important parts of the process, there are several other key indicators, which often get overlooked by Tampa staffing managers. Here are six additional factors to consider when hiring new employees:
