If you own and operate a small business, you may find it of no surprise that it can be difficult to find the right employees. A study recently found that half of the small businesses in America report being unable to find and hire qualified people to fill necessary positions. But why?
Challenges identified by 500 respondents were identification of qualified candidates, the coordination of job postings, managing pools of candidates, and peer collaboration. Many felt that utilizing some type of software would be in their best interest when it came to procuring employees.
Software in the Hiring Process
Too many small business owners rely on their own abilities and intuition when it comes to hiring employees. While this may seem like a smart move, it typically is a waste of time and energy. Finding employees using traditional methods is no longer considered efficient. While an owner may know about a few job boards and post their openings, the right software can post to hundreds of job boards, screen applicants and even rate candidates.
The process of hiring employees can be a tiresome one in which a small business owner feels as though they are stuck in a never-ending cycle of screening and interviewing with nothing to show for it. This cycle takes an owner away from the more important day-to-day operations of their business.
