There are a number of best practices that can help you do a better job of hiring. These include the use of job descriptions to clarify the role, written employment applications, structured interviews, background checks, drug screenings and past employment verification.Offer competitive salary and benefits packages, along with as much flexibility in scheduling as is appropriate in your industry.

Don’t forget to discuss your company’s goals and core values to ensure the best fit. In addition, it’s important to put the right policies and procedures in place, to make your expectations clear. After you hire, offer a good onboarding program, augmented by thorough, consistent training.

Treat all employees with dignity and respect, making sure your supervisors do the same; and consider ways to engage employees such as employee recognition programs, events and community volunteer projects.
