Recruitment and Retention in the workplace

female in recruitment meeting

Recruitment involves attracting and selecting an individual for a role within an organisation. The recruitment process involves identifying the need for a role within an organisation. 

If someone has left the company, you may want to assess if you require the same skills as the predecessor and adjust the person’s specification criteria to suit the needs of the business.

Recruitment procedures

There are set recruitment procedures that you need to follow when recruiting. You must keep records of the process as you need to be able to prove that the process has been carried out fairly.

The most important thing about recruitment is about matching the right person to the right job. The recruitment procedures will help you to do this.

When carrying out recruitment, you are not measuring people against each other, you are measuring them against the ideal candidate which you have already decided upon in-person specification.

The people involved in the recruitment process should know what they are doing, which may involve some training.

Recruitment is expensive in both time and money so you need to make sure when you do recruit someone, you must induct and train them properly so that they stay.

Check out our YouTube video on recruitment and retention in the workplace.

Retention

Retention is the term that describes the extent to which an employer retains its employees, we have been experiencing the ‘Great Reshuffle‘ the last few years making retention harder for employers. 

If you have a problem with retention, you might want to keep a record of why people are leaving by completing an exit interview and that will be a really good way to guide you as to what you need to change your company.

How to improve company retention

You can improve retention in your company by being flexible with employees working hours, ensuring everyone is treated fairly, focusing on employee wellbeing and giving employees a voice in making business decisions.

 

Reviewing your company to establish if your employees have a healthy work-life balance, ensuring they switch off from work and aren’t continually sending emails outside of working hours.

MAC Recruit Group were referred to Natalie and Beyond HR, to help with our initial set up and growth of the business. We received a fanstastic level or service where no questions was too small and all queries were answered in a very timely manner. I have no hesitation to referring Natalie to other business owners and we will continue to use the service for many years to come.

As a start up business, we required help and support to ensure both our business and staff were protected when it came to policies and procedures. We decided to speak with Natalie to find out what we required as a business. From initial telephone conversation, to face to face meeting – Natalie has been amazing. Value for money is brilliant and always knowing Natalie is at the end of the phone for any urgent questions is great for peace of mind. This allows us to free up the time to concentrate on our business. Since engaging Natalie over a year ago, we have recommended Natalie to a number of Clients, friends and family – all have businesses that employ various numbers of staff. She is an asset to any business small or large and her knowledge is second to none.

Fabrication Specialists Limited required a company who could keep us up to date with employment law and compliant with the requirements of employee contracts etc. We are delighted with the help and professionalism of Beyond HR, in particular Natalie who is always on the end of the phone when we need her. In these uncertain times dealing with Covid19 issues, BeyondHR have guided us through the requirements of furlough step by step making the whole process much easier to deal with. I would not hesitate to recommend BeyondHR to any company seeking this type of service.

BeyondHR have worked with me for my charity in Scotland, in all types of HR activities, like updating policies, contracts, grievances, disciplinaries, redundancies etc. They approach things in a very practical way, ensuring you know of the potential risks to the business but also being considerate of the resources and limitations within which you work. They give you an impartial ear, sharing the complexities and emotional journey of such situations and ensuring a smooth and legally correct outcome. Would highly recommend them.

During a time of change we had reached out to BeyondHR to help guide us through. As a 3rd Sector organisation with tight budgets and capacity the support has been timely and accurate and any time I have needed to talk things through they have been on hand. The Covid 19 crisis has forced us to continue with changes in a smart and thoughtful manner and BeyondHR have been so supportive and feel like a safe pair of hands. I would definitely recommend BeyondHR.
