It’s understandable if you have standards in determining whom to hire to work with you. It’s not easy to settle for someone who couldn’t do a stellar job for your company. At some point though, you will realize that you constantly end up with hiring problems. You end up with the wrong persons for the job. If you found someone great, that potential employee refused the job offer. If this is a persistent issue in your company, you might have to consider evaluating yourself. You could be the problem.
You’re so picky
standards in choosing employees, and it’s your right to determine the qualities
that potential employees must have to perfectly fit your vision. The
problem is when you end up saying no to almost everyone. You could be too picky
and you’re losing potential candidates. Of course, you can’t expect every
applicant to be perfect for the job. They’re all raw, but some of them could
still be trained. Find someone who already checks several boxes instead of
sticking with a candidate who fits your ideals.
offer the right salary package
You need to
understand that there are lots of direct
competitors to your business, and you can’t be cheap in offering
salary packages. Otherwise, you will lose a lot of great applicants. Even fresh
graduates have high standards especially if they know their worth. Check the

if you think that the average rate is too high.
has a terrible reputation because of your leadership
talk. You expect them to remain loyal to the company and not say terrible
things, but they won’t hold back if you’re not a good leader. If words about
how bad you are as a leader and how horrible the workplace start to spread, you
can’t expect potential candidates to apply for
the job, or accept an offer.
possible that you still rely on traditional methods of looking for potential
candidates. You can’t rely on regular job boards alone. You need to look for
agencies that specialize in hunting for employees who will do well with the
industry that you’re operating. You need to be more aggressive. Try to convince
even those who are already employed to work with you instead of relying on the
stream of online applicants alone. Your laziness or lack of innovation could be
the reason why you don’t have the best people in your team.
Try to change
the way you deal with job application so that you will get the best people to
work with you. Hopefully, things will change after you start to improve
the hiring process.
