Our blog provided a lot of helpful tips, tricks, and strategies for small, medium-sized, and large business in 2018. As we make our way into the new year, the team at Mega Force would like to look back at last year and highlight some of the top tips we’ve shared with you throughout 2018.
Ask Interview Questions that Actually Work
The initial interview gives you the chance to ask questions that relate specifically to the job at hand, but it’s important that you focus on asking questions that really make your applicants think. Some of these questions are:
- As a superhero, what would your superpowers be?
- What would be the name of your biography?
- Who do you admire most and why?
Creative questions like these can cut the tension in nearly any interview, and they often result in equally creative answers. Not only does this give the interviewee the opportunity to think on their feet and respond to a question that they didn’t expect, but it can give the interviewer even further insight into an applicant’s background, demeanor, and overall mindset.
Boost Employee Retention
Recruiting talented workers in your industry is only the first step in successfully staffing a business – the hard part comes in keeping these staff members on a long-term basis. With so many companies battling issues with retention, we offered numerous tips to help secure top talent in your industry, including:
- Provide ongoing and helpful training
- Recognize and reward valuable employees
- Maintain an emphasis on safety
- Participate in community service
All of these strategies will promote retention and help drive your team to all-new heights in performance, efficiency, and consistency.
