Possibly the biggest challenge facing businesses today is recruiting the most suitable staff, and then taking every step necessary to ensure that they stay in the company or organisation.
In a two-part episode on Recruitment and Retention, I talk to Paul Harris, the founder of Real Success Ltd, a company specialising in meeting the staffing requirements of the farming community. His down-to-earth and highly practical advice is relevant to the land-based engineering sector – or any business without a fully functioning HR department.
In this first episode, Paul advises not to panic when faced with sudden staffing needs. He says careful planning is necessary and clear steps to identify candidates, leading to crafting an offer of employment with legal obligations.
