Recruiting the best – is your company fit for fight?
Production companies all over the world are aware that robots, automation and digitization are here to stay. Large investments are made to ensure that production in the future can meet demands for quality, accuracy and low costs in an increasingly global competition.
However, when it comes to recruitment processes and improvements of the company’s ability to attract and retain qualified employees, management teams are less eager to invest. Despite forecasts that predict a significant lack of highly skilled employees within the next 5-10 years, many companies stick to old routines and a low to medium degree of professionalism.
Recruitment in 2017 is a specialist area. The business manager knows what the job is about. The recruiter knows how to find the right person for the job.
However,like any other process in your value chain, your recruiting process requires frequent attention – otherwise it won’t support you optimally when you need it.
Spend your HR resources wisely. You need them to ensure daily routines and set the direction for your workforce management, but you probably don’t want to have too many fixed resources tied up in your administration.
Even though it may feel like selling off the family silver to many companies, consider if you get more flexible professional recruiting support by hiring in an external, trusted partner specialized in selecting the right person for your job. By doing this, your employer brand stays attractive, you help your business managers develop their recruitment focus and skills, and your company stays ahead in the competition for good people.
