A Series of Small Business Recruitment Mistakes to Avoid (2)


2. Hiring Without a Clear Job Description

The first step in recruiting with intent is to prepare a clear job description that outlines what you’re looking for in a new employee and what they can expect from the job. But you’ll quickly find that this step has major benefits for your whole company, not just your new employees:

“Sometimes the first step in making a new appointment is to understand how your current staff are performing,” says Diana George. “ If you feel that your current staff are not getting the results you expect, you need to focus on developing a clear job description that you can use to make new appointments. Unfortunately, many small business owners have everything in their head and expect the employees to be able to do the job even though it is not documented anywhere how to do the job correctly.”
