Is DIY the future for HR solutions?

Any business owner will agree that the need for human resource management services and HR solutions is significant. By establishing certain HR practices on an early basis, you help to create a culture for future growth within your company. It should always be the goal to let your employees take responsibility for their own work and own record keeping as well as empowering them by letting them keep track of their own personal career development. Companies should, however, be aware of the pitfalls of DIY recruitment, since it can be a minefield of nasty surprises that are waiting to undermine your best intentions when hiring employees for your company.

A few pitfalls of DIY recruitment:

  • Time is money

Managers often find themselves swamped with CV’s after advertising for a position – and the sifting and screening process for applicants is an arduous process. Sometimes, it is necessary to conduct background checks on the best candidates to make sure that all information is true and relevant to the position advertised – and this can take a lot of time that could have been used for something more productive.

  • Mounting costs

As long as a position remains unfilled, productivity is decreased – and this places further burden on management. Most often, desperate decisions lead to unsuitable appointments, only for employers to realize later that the recruit isn’t up to the job! At CRS, we have the HR solutions to help you save money and appoint the right candidate for the job as soon as possible.

  • Unsuitable Professionals

We work and run our businesses in a competitive global market and the current recruitment challenges that we encounter show us that it is difficult to reach top calibre people through just printed media and advertising. Top candidates looking for new appointments are more inclined to use the services of a specialist consultant – and that’s where we come in. When it comes to recruiting for positions that require top skills and experience, the only sensible thing to do is to outsource. We are just a phone call away.
