The latest news and advice from our recruitment experts.
There’s something for everyone who needs professional HR services. You might just want to choose one (you might be a pick n’ mixer) or if you want to outsource the lot then you can hand it all over too!
From the start of the process to the end, QJumpers' HR services have been designed to keep you on top of the staffing game.
Forward thinking HR specialists can even start before a job vacancy comes up. Providing smartly designed and cleverly written job descriptions is vital to attract and connect with your ideal target audience.
Analytical and insightful profiling tools are in hot demand; they do a lot of the ground work for you and take the guess work out, providing you with a safety net.
Reference checks are indispensable because they either tell you someone is good or bad – to put it bluntly. Be careful though, the information you receive is only as good as the questions you ask and the people you use to do the reference check. Professional HR services include expertise around reference checking.
Recruitment and HR aren’t for the fainthearted and getting it right is harder than it looks if you’re not an expert. Hours, money, resource and energy can all be wasted if you recruit badly and manage people inefficiently.
Gaps in policy and procedure manuals or having none at all can see you sideswiped at employment tribunal time. We’ve heard it so many times – “but we told them this is how the job should be done, these are our rules and regulations” but this won’t stand a chance in court.
With well written, updated reviewed and effective policies and procedures all your staff will understand the expectations and are far more likely to follow them. These are your bible and they’re crucial.
What happens at your workplace at pay review or recruitment remuneration time? It can be a headache, but with a robust system and structure to follow it’s fair and all above board. It’s another HR service that is fundamental and imperative to have. What happens if you don’t use this service? Hours and hours of tweaks on your spreadsheet here and there, hours of listening to unhappy staff and possibly, losing money in areas you don’t need to.
Now you have successfully recruited your next star – how do you retain all this key talent? How do you keep them engaged and empowered to add continuous value for you and for them? You performance manage and help them with their ongoing development. Professional HR services know what to look out for, how to read what is not being said and feed back essential information to close the loop on retention.
When it is time for one of your team to move on, sucking out much-needed information on why they’re leaving or what could be done better around your business can deliver insider knowledge that you might not even know was going on.
