It’s amazing the sheer amount of work that goes into hiring someone. Never having had to run the entire process from start to finish, I never really realised how tiring it is and why it becomes so important to reduce your hire rates if at all possible.
I thought I’d list out the individual steps we have to deal with here.
- Defining the Job
- Defining chain of commands and management
- The Job Post
- Short-listing candidates
- The Interview Process
- The Offer Letter
- Calculating Salary & Withholding’s
- CRA & the WCB
- Training (and prior to that, documenting processes for training)
- Internal Evaluations
- Job Confirmation
Once that’s all done, you’ve got an employee. Now it’s the everyday day-to-day management.
