In the third and final part we cover steps 6, 7 and 8.
Step 6. Interview and Select the Candidates
Six, interview and select the candidates.
You’ve met the candidates, you’ve completed the interviews, now to take stock and select the successful applicant.
The hiring manager (and where applicable, the line-manager) make the selections. Depending on your organisation, such as a country manager reporting to head office, sometimes a more senior person might have to approve the outcome.
Step 7. On-Boarding, Probation & OJT
Contrary to what some sales people might think, a sales is not complete until they receive the payment.
Similarly, hiring is not over until your new employee clears probation. That’s the seventh step.
The hiring manager and line-manager handle the following stages of the hiring process:
- On-the-job training
Step 8. Confirmation
If the new employee successfully completes the probation, the line-manager recommends confirmation and the hiring manager/business owner approves.
This in a nutshell is a typical 8-Step Hiring Process.
Next week, we discuss the elements of a typical Probation.
