Knock your staffing strategy out of the park


At the most basic level, on-the-job success can be defined as successfully and consistently getting the job done regardless of circumstances and with the least amount of direction as possible.

The path to such an outcome however is rarely that simple.  Success of workers heavily depends on the company’s investment in their staffing strategy.

In order to attract and retain talented workers, recruitment efforts should include:

  • An up-to-date job description outlining required core competencies
  • Detailed physical requirements of the job or tasks
  • Accurate performance expectations (Qualitative & Quantitative) that ideally allow a person performing the job to measure their performance (self-assess)
  • Job attributes (behaviors that motivate)
  • Competitive market pay rates
  • 2-3 employee value propositions (EVPs)

When these principles are followed, companies will achieve the maximum return on investment by securing talented workers who are engaged and invested not only in their job duties but in the overall success of the company.

Choosing to work with a staffing partner can ensure that each step of the process is followed, your company is thoughtfully presented and candidates are thoroughly considered.
