Hire well now to build the future of your company. It seems obvious. But the labor market has never felt more complicated. With a shortage of job seekers and a surplus of open jobs, businesses are struggling to hire. Prospective employees are seeking higher pay, more flexibility, and remote options. They are also seeking more than just work. People want to connect and feel community. So, how do we entice these perfectly qualified candidates? Here are some strategies to help you hire just the right employees.

How do you hire well now to build the future of your business? First, you need to showcase your positive qualities. What about your business is most appealing? Can you offer a flexible schedule and remote work? Do you have lunch delivered to the office? Do you have a positive presence in the local community? How’s your company culture? Today’s job seekers are looking for more than a job. Share what makes being a part of your team special while highlighting what’s in it for the employees. To hire ideal employees, It’s key to lead a well-rounded company. Be sure to stand for more than your work.

Here is a recent Boxwell blog post on the topic: BEING A WELL-ROUNDED COMPANY: WHY IT’S A GOOD IDEA

“Candidates are not prioritizing pay and title as once were; they are prioritizing purpose and connection to the company.”

Next, be sure to offer benefits along with competitive wages. With minimum wage increases, it’s only natural that all wages should go up. Be sure you know the range. It’s also a good idea to offer an incentive for a job well done. Promote quarterly bonuses based on performance? 3-month reviews are a great way to check in with your employees. And if they’ve met certain criteria, give them a bump in their income from time to time. Do you have a 401(k)-matching program? Remember whomever you hire now will help you build the future of your business. Look after your employees by paying them well, and you’ll be sure to build a solid team.
We recommend that you keep your options open. As a business, it may be ideal to hire someone with experience in your industry, but look past your ideal checklist. You might have that perfect candidate in mind, and you might never find them. Be willing to look at a resume from someone, for example, with little experience. Sometimes “green” hires become your best employees. Similarly, don’t be dissuaded by an applicant who appears to be over-qualified. People make life changes and may be looking for a role to fit their new life-balance. Base your decision to hire upon how the person communicates and works with a team. Here are some of the basics to look for when hiring now to build the future of your business.

So, what are the key qualities to look for in potential employees?

In addition, these qualities would help make a well-rounded (think: long-lasting) employee:
