Don’t Put A Hold On Recruiting During the Holidays
‘Tis the season for holiday cheer, vacations, and a more relaxed attitude at work. But putting the task of recruiting new staff on hold for the holidays is often a mistake made by business owners. Here’s why…
First, if you’ve already begun the process of recruiting for a specific position, putting the search on hold for two or three weeks could cause you to lose the momentum on which you’ve been building.
Second, with the ongoing national shortage of qualified candidates, managers can’t afford to prolong the hiring process. Fewer employees on staff means a continued heavy workload and not so happy staff.
Third, the holiday season is a good time to reach out to interview candidates. Many have more relaxed hours at work and more free time to talk. The timing is right for some strategic conversations.
