A Positive COVID Side Effect!
We’ve all been observing the economic effects COVID-19 has had globally. Federal Economists are currently predicting the unemployment rate to reach 32% in the United States as the impacts of the pandemic continue to unveil.* Unfortunately, a large economic impact has already been felt for many, with businesses closing, jobs lost, and wages increased for essential workers.
What might this mean for your aesthetic practice? With so many individuals out of work looking to grow or begin their careers due to coronavirus, now is a great opportunity to make some fantastic hires! There are currently lots of talented job seekers available that might be the right fit for your business!
Recruiting and training good employees is an essential practice for your business’s productivity and growth. The long term effects of making a good hire are advantageous to you as a business owner. High-quality candidates will help you maintain higher retention rates, experience the benefits of motivated and results-driven team members, and help your bottom line.
When you do decide to hire, make sure to hire for a culture fit, finding individuals whose mission, goals, and core values align with those in your business. Ask questions during the interview process regarding why they want the position. Ask yourself how well a particular candidate would communicate, support, and work alongside the rest of your team.
It’s important that you like the individual you are interviewing. You don’t want to dread going to work (in YOUR business) simply because you hired someone that you don’t get along with. Often, making and finding a good hire can be a slow process, and that’s just fine. Protecting your business and team culture from the negative consequences of a bad hire will always be worth the time you’ve invested in the hiring process!
Now’s the time to analyze whether your business would benefit from adding team members. A good hire decision will benefit not only your business but your local community as well! 💙
