Tips for Hiring Employees for Your Start-up Company

Tips for Hiring Employees for Your Start-up Company

So, you've created a start-up company. It's been your dream for years to start your own business and things are going pretty well so far. The only problem is you have no one to work for you.

You fear that it might be hard to hire someone for your company since it is so new and not well-known. However, that doesn't have to be the case. There are a few things you can do to hire the perfect people for your company, regardless of whether it's a start-up or not. Here's what you can do.

  1. Reach Out to Talent Agencies: When starting your search, it's best to contact a talent agency so that you can get your job need out there. The job placement agency will work with their clients and find you viable candidates. Their HR recruiters will take the time to hand pick people and work with them to prepare them for their interview with you. The career placement agency works with you every step of the way, so you won't be confused on what needs to be done. It's important to find the right person for the position so you don't have to restructure in the future. You also don't want to lose employees because they didn't end up liking the position. At the end of June 2015, 2.7 million workers decided to leave their job. That was a 25% increase from 2013. Working with a talent agency or HR consultant will help in preventing that from happening.
  2. Create a Social Media Posting: If your business has any social media pages, throw the listing up on that channel. Even if any of the followers aren't interested in the position, they may share it with their friends and family. You never know who may see the shared post.
  3. Hire Someone as Soon as You Can: If you can hire your first employee from day one, do it. It may cost some money that you don't think you have at the time, but if there is any way for you to make it work, don't hesitate. Since you have no employees, you will not have a team of HR recruiters. This means you'll want to work with an outside team of HR recruiters.

If you have a start-up company but have no employees, don't worry. There are things you can do to grow your company, and hiring an amazing base of people to help out with your business is much easier with the assistance of a staffing agency.
