Nina Pampel of Integrated Human Resourcing lists the Top 5 mistakes made by employers when recruiting and how to avoid them.
Not analysing the businesses needs firsts, role requirements are too vague and there is no job description.
Complete a job analysis, identify responsibilities and develop a position description.
Not taking into consideration team fit when interviewing.
DISC profile candidates, understand the existing team and consider personalities that would be a good fit.
Not being prepared with interview questions relevant to the role and person you are looking for.
Develop an interview guide with a mixture of experience, competency and behavioural questions.
Leaving good candidates hanging.
Always communicate any hurdles or hold ups in the process, try to be open and honest. Always ask if they are currently considering any other opportunities. Back to mistake 1, try not to recruit until the business is ready.
Not completing pre-employment checks.
In addition, we are also offering a complimentary HR Health Check for anyone that responds to this podcast.

1. Talk us through your ideal day off

2. What is your weirdest habit?
I hold my breath without realising.
3. What is the most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done?
