Recruiting the right people for your company does take time, and there’s a significant amount of work involved.
Outsourcing your recruitment to The Ventureside will not only take the task off your hands — freeing up time to focus on growing your business — but will help you to recruit the best possible candidate and be legally compliant.
It might surprise you to learn that employment law applies even before hiring an employee. From the moment you begin recruiting, you are bound by laws on discrimination and data protection. This is where our HR professionals come in. Not only will they help you find the best talent, but also keep your recruitment on the right side of the employment law.
At The Ventureside, we offer a personal recruitment service that gets to know you and your business. We’re not a call centre a million miles away; our experts are locally-based and can even pop into your workplace for a chat about your recruitment needs.
The reward for getting recruitment right can be significant for your business’s success, as can the cost of getting it wrong.
At The Ventureside, we understand that every client is unique, which is why we offer a tailored recruitment service to suit every client. We don’t do a DIY, copy and paste template like some.
We really get to know you and your business. This allows us to build long-term relationships with our clients based on trust, helping them achieve their recruitment plans short, medium and long-term.
We will work with you throughout the recruitment process, assessing the attitude, skills and knowledge of candidates to make sure that you find the right person for the role.
Because changes are constantly being made to the way we do things, staff training and development is also important to a company’s organisational culture. Something that works today might be outdated tomorrow. Continuous training and development help staff stay up to speed and adapt quickly if changes happen.
Employee training helps with motivation, too. If an employee learns a new skill and receives praise from their employer, they’ll most likely carry this motivation into their job role, which will improve performance.
It can also influence positive employee retention. By providing employees with career growth opportunities, you’re more likely to keep hold of employees, which means less time and money spent hiring. A company that invests in its people will not only pick up praise from its employees, but from others outside of an organisation, too. This is great for a business’s reputation, and for attracting top talent.
The Ventureside offers a wide range of services to suit all types of businesses. The type of service we provide you with will depend on your needs, which we’ll get to understand once you’ve been in contact. As a broad offering, our services include job descriptions and personal specifications, advertising, psychometric testing, CV screening and shortlisting, telephone interviews, creating interview questions and conducting face-to-face interviews on your business’s behalf. If you need help with any of the above, drop us an email or give us a call — we’d love to help you in your search for new talent.
There are two types of recruitment: Internal Recruitment — is the recruitment that happens within the organisation. There are two primary sources of internal recruitment, and they are transfers, from another department or promotions. This type of recruitment can lead to a spike in productivity as the employee’s motivation increases. Because internal recruitment only considers existing employees, a potential downside is that not all the requirements can be met — meaning you might have to make sacrifices. Many companies insist that all opportunities are externally advertised. External Recruitment — is the recruitment that happens outside your organisation. The advantage being that you can attract a wider pool of candidates and build a more diverse workforce.
We will sit down with you to discuss your needs and assess which of our recruitment services might be suitable. From the initial discovery meeting, we can manage the process right through to interviews and offers, or simply be a helping hand to sense-check your processes when needed.
All types of businesses benefit from using an HR professional, but none more so than start-ups and SMEs. It’s not uncommon for start-up founders to be less experienced when it comes to hiring, so an HR professional will keep everything in check and ensure you recruit the best possible candidate. As well as helping hire employees through creating inclusive job roles, conducting structured job interviews and protecting businesses from lawsuits, HR professionals help start-ups and SMEs develop and retain employees by fairly compensating workers, creating training programmes and more.
