SME BUSINESS TIPS
TOP tips on selection and assessment for managers ORGANISATIONS which have the ability to attract, recruit and retain members of staff tend to see more positive overall outcomes, from productivity to staff morale. Selection and assessment is important for both the organisation and the candidate to ensure that the right people are selected the right roles.
Shelly Rubinstein, managing director at Impact Consulting Psychologists, gives her tips on best practice:
1. Develop a clear job description
Make sure that your job description is reflective of the role itself, including the range of responsibilities. If not you could risk attrition rates, where new starters leave when the role is different to their expectations.
2. Attract your candidates
In order to receive the best applicants you should reach out and attract as many people in the target market as possible. This can involve marketing through means such as social media. The best practice in attraction methods reaches a diverse pool of people, so consider the methods you use and who you will be reaching.
3. Ensure a fair practice
All forms of selection and assessment should be fair and give all candidates an equal chance to be considered for the position.
In order to achieve this, assessment should be objective and free from bias. All assessors should be trained in order for the process to be consistent between individual candidates.
