As HR consultants, we have surveyed our clients and networks over the past decade. Business owners and CEO’s always share what they dislike the most about recruitment. The message has been loud and clear; and very consistent!
At wattsnext we are a small business, like you! We’ve made our fair share of mistakes when recruiting internally; we feel your pain. We have spent a decade explaining to businesses that we are Human Resources experts and not recruiters, because we look at business and the recruitment process differently. Recruitment is just one part of the ‘people experience’ puzzle that we work on with our clients. But, we are increasingly seeing the impact we can have in this space, by partnering with businesses to tackle this less-than-popular endeavour.
As an expert HR department, we are offering an alternative solution to the ‘% of salary fee model’, with recruitment services by the hour. You can outsource part or all of the job, access the best practice recruitment process and only get charged for the hours spent.
From attraction, ad writing, search, shortlisting, phone screening, first interview, interview scheduling, interview question guidance, reference checking, candidate offer and negotiation, through to closing the loop for unsuccessful candidates – you can have as much (or as little!) involvement to make this process as painless, and cost-effective as possible.
You, as the business owner or CEO, remain in control of the cost, the quality and the result, while our team assist with everything in between.
Finally, a recruitment option that makes sense for SME’s!
So much so, that this is the way I now approach internal recruitment at wattsnext too!
