Estimated reading time: 2 mins

If you get the right kind of people into your business it’ll shoot to the next level. Sometimes business owners find it hard to let go. You don’t think people will be as productive as you. It’s true in that they won’t care about your business like you do. It’s something you need to face. No one will care as much as you but that doesn’t mean you can bring people into the fold to help boost your business. There are many ways to do it. The key is doing it in a way that brings in the right people while keeping your workload to a minimum. It’s hard, but there are ways to do it and these tips can help.

Get A consistent Application Set Up

If you’re getting all different kinds of applications it’ll be tougher to sift through them. You’ll be looking at different parts of each one to find the points relevant to your business. If you force applicants to standardise their applications you’ll know exactly where to look thus saving you time. Try offering a free resume template to applicant on your website so that they’ll all be standardised. Or get rid of the resume altogether and design an application form to your own specifications. This way you can ask for exactly what you want and need. Be careful though, it needs to be completely fair your you could get taken to a tribunal. A way around this is by keeping the application from as free from personal details as you possibly can.

Set The Bar High

The simply truth is you might get completely inundated. You can stop this by setting the bar high. Depending on what kind of job you’re offering, you can set a requisite qualification to stop too many going for it. It also ensures all those applying will have the relevant skills to do the job. If you’re recruiting for an admin style jobs and are looking for entry level applicants who may not have degrees and qualifications you can set the bar as experience. Having people who have done similar jobs before will help then hit the ground running and also enable them to bring best practice to your business for potential streamlining.

Take A Step Back

Who says you have to deal with all of this anyway? You can hire someone or a company to do it for you. Recruitment companies can let you step back and focus on the running of the business when they find the best candidates. There are some obvious drawbacks. First, it means you’re going to have more overheads. When you’re about to pay out more money on staff paying for recruitment consultancy may not be the best idea. Also, they’re never going to be as picky as you can be. It may be the case that you’re too picky. But no one wants your business to succeed as much as you. You need to look at your priorities and weigh them against one another. What’s more important, you committing more time to the day to day running of your business or saving money by looking after the recruitment yourself.
