A superior workforce requires planning. Whether you are hiring your first employee, or one among many, there are steps you should take before you even place an ad for a new employee. First, of course, is to clearly determine the actual need for the new or replacement hire. Consider if there is another way to accomplish the work: review improving processes, redistribution of workload, or eliminating redundant or out of date procedures. Once the decision is made that a new hire is required, involve current staff who are familiar with the work involved in planning and developing the list of key requirements and other desired traits for the ideal new employee to fill the job. From there, rewrite or develop a job description and pay range. Make a final decision that the pay range is within current budget for hiring at this time.
