Three mistakes to avoid when hiring employees

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The professionals you select for your team are vital to the success of your business, so it’s essential that you choose the right candidates when finding new workers. However, there are many mistakes business owners can make during the hiring process. Here are three hiring pitfalls your organization should avoid.

Asking the wrong questions

Executives should know what questions to ask potential new hires during interviews to ensure they learn important information about their candidates. Try asking open-ended questions to applicants that showcase their problem-solving or critical-thinking skills. You should also avoid questions with predictable answers.

Not maintaining communication with candidates

You will likely have several candidates who are applying to multiple companies alongside your business. Your organization should try to stay connected with applicants to keep them up to date on where they are at in your hiring process. Employers who maintain communication with job seekers will be seen as professional and respectful toward applicants.

Ignoring candidate references

It’s important to learn as much as you can about your applicants to make sure you’re choosing the best person for your open position. References can give executives valuable insight into the characteristics of their candidates, such as if they were punctual at their old jobs.

Part of developing a successful business is picking the right people to join your organization. Executives can get more advice on running a successful organization from Crisafulli Business Coaching.
