Many hiring managers look at a few very important things when they review applications. They look to see if this is someone with the skill set required for the position. They look to see if this is someone that might have some longevity with their company; reducing turnover costs. They look to see if this is someone who can pass the required criminal background checks included in their pre-employment screening.
All of those things are important to a hiring manager. As a small business owner, we actually are the hiring managers. There is rarely payroll for someone other than us to be a hiring manager. As such, we need to determine what our end game is going to be for this employee.
As much as we hate to admit it, sometimes we simply hire someone to be a warm body in our stores. That means we never really expect much out of them and when they quit unexpectedly, well, we are not surprised. We didn’t hire to make our store better. We simply hired to have someone with a name badge on in our store.
These are the decisions that get us into trouble. When we don’t expect the best, we get disposable employees who may or may not pass more in depth criminal background checks.
The end game is not for longevity. Unfortunately, these are the employees who will cost us so much more than we realize. They will be the ones who steal, give poor service, and cost us more money, as we have to start the hiring and training process over again in such a short span of time.
