Save Time by Investing Time in Your Open Jobs
By Mark Gragg
Time, or rather, the lack thereof, if one of the most common issues I talk about with my clients. Everyone is expected to do more with less time and fewer resources.
Time is really what makes losing an employee so devastating. John or Jane Doe walks in to your office this morning and gives you a 2 week notice. Sudden change. The lost time and productivity will likely have an impact up and down your entire organization because your business and your CUSTOMERS won't wait. The employee is gone, but his or her job, your expectations and your deadlines have not changed. You are staring extra work, juggled schedules, reassigned responsibilities right in the face at this point. Hopefully your organization is prepared for these events with succession planning, internal promotion, etc… but reality is many are not.
Replacing an employee is expensive too. Check out the infographic below courtesy of Compliance and Safety.
This is where you need to resist the human nature tendency to retreat and buckle down on what needs to get done and find a way, any way you can, to invest in hiring that replacement and moving forward. I’m here to take that burden off of your shoulders. Recruiters do a lot of heavy lifting behind the scenes, vetting and qualifying candidates, coordinating schedules for interviews, etc…
What we need from you and the best course of action to solve your pain point is to invest in the process. Understand that the 1 hour speaking with a candidate you like for the position is very important to your business big picture. You could find the one person who can relieve your stress and end up doing wonderful things for your company that aren’t even imagined at this point. In a perfect situation your time investment today will free up much more of your time down the road.
