The No. 1 challenge facing business owners today is finding job applicants and retaining new hires.
Finding the right employees, which is directly tied to reducing attrition, is key to maximizing you bottom line.
Every time you lose an employee there are several hard costs that an organization incurs: 1) Recruiting cost to find new employees 2) Costs to find those new applicants 3) Cost to onboard and train new employees.
These are just a few and these costs are real and put a hit on your bottom line. In the fast food and casual dining business, these costs can easily grow to more than $1000 per each person you need to hire.
Every step in the employee journey plays a role in helping to reduce turnover:
- Finding applicants
- Completing applications
- Onboarding and training
- Ongoing management and communication
- Post employment process
The Application Process
This month we want to put a spotlight on the entire application process – from finding new employees to the submission of applications to the hiring decision.
The amount of information that is available to anyone at anytime means that you have a very limited time to engage with potential employees and draw them into your organization. Most people spend less than 15 seconds on a web page before they go do something else.
Yes, you have less than 15 seconds to make sure the reader is going to stay.
Grabbing the attention and keeping that attention throughout the application process is the one key to increasing the amount of potential employees and to drive down the cost of hiring. At TRUST we help you move your potential employees through the process as fast as possible.
