Why is Hiring Not Easy?
<p>Why is Hiring Not Easy?</p>
<p>A company is made up of its people. From the time a company comes into existence, the first thing the founders work on, is trying to hire smart people. This helps in building a strong foundation and becomes a reason for a company's growth. What wonder can smart people do? People usually mistake intelligence to be the mark of smartness. It is not. Some of the characteristics of smart people include being willing to expand their awareness, ever-ready to face challenges- mentally and physically, quick decision-makers, and socially aware and present, etc. Being passionate about work, putting in time and effort, being a consistent hard worker does do the magic. Some of the finest examples of employees who became assets of the company are Satya Nadella and Sundar Pichai.</p>
<p>Being the world's second-most populated country means finding a lot of ideal employees, right? No. India surely has a lot of potential candidates, but not everyone is the ‘ideal employee’ companies are looking for. The relationship between a company and its employee is a very important one. Companies seem to be looking for a candidate who surpasses 3Cs- Character, Competency, and Commitment and can fit their company culture.</p>
<p>While one may think the hiring process being a challenge for candidates, they seem to be unaware of the challenges faced by the employer. People sitting in the human resource department are always under pressure of hiring the right candidate in the limited time given. Any company opening up for a new candidate comes across issues like finding effective ways to reach out to potential candidates, creating a pool of candidates according to the requirements, filtering the pool, carrying out phone call interviews, giving them small challenges to test their skills, judge fairly and select the ideal candidate that fits the company. The process does not end here. It is often followed by doing a background check on the candidate, checking the will of the candidate regarding joining the company and taking their cultural feedback.</p>
<p>Hiring the candidate is the beginning of a new journey. Like a parent, the company nurtures the candidate, now an employee, at every stage from the first day. Seniors are often asked to keep a check on the employee’s growth, help them adapt and adjust to the company’s work culture, and mingle with other employees. Eventually, the employee becomes a contributor, an asset to the company.</p>
