Where is your current workforce when you are employing staff?

Employing staff is often kept a mystery in the workplace, with employees not meeting, or even seeing, their new peer until their first day of work.

Like a child waiting to see what their new baby brother or sister looks like, everyone waits to see how the new arrival will change things.

However, it doesn’t have to be like this. It can be good practice to involve your employees in the interview and selection process.

Without necessarily giving them full control to run the entire process, they can be part of certain sections of interview or assess the candidate during a trial.

Here are six reasons why involving your employees can be helpful:

They know the job

They can ask role specific questions and assess whether their knowledge fits at a practical level

They know the team

They might know better whether prospective candidates will fit well with the rest of the team

Different perspectives

It is good to bring in different sets of eyes to assess people. Different perspectives means a broader assessment

Keep them feeling integral

Your current staff will feel important and trusted

Building staff

It is another way you can build and train your staff in their career progression

Candidate’s benefit

The candidate can see what kind of people they will be working with. As someone who is considering working somewhere, knowing what kind of employees they will be joining is very important.

Many bigger companies have adopted the practice of including their current employees in the hiring process. It can be a really great idea in terms of gathering additional thoughts and having people close to the role judge the candidate.
