HR Manual: A Generalist's Guide to Hiring a Successful Employee

This presentation will give a detailed explanation of the process a company goes through to hire a new employee. This process begins with defining the requirements and qualifications of the job and working with the hiring manager to create a job description that will be posted for the public to see. After receiving applications, the company begins the selection process by looking at information on an applicant's resume and application. The next steps include phone interviews and on site interviews. Once an offer is extended to an applicant and it is accepted, the onboarding process is set into motion. Onboarding steps should be taken before a new hire arrives until the first 90 days of employment, and arguably longer. By following this process, a company will enhance its chances of increasing employee satisfaction and retention as well as improving overall morale.
