Why Can’t I Hire Good People?


Historic low unemployment rates have left companies struggling to find great talent.

There are many solutions to hire the talent your company needs, such as reevaluating work requirements, looking to referrals from colleagues, working with a top-tier recruitment agency or utilizing temp-to-hire.

Many solutions can alleviate the struggle and shortage of finding the best job candidates. Here are some suggestions.


You can employ temporary help for a designated period. This allows you to get to know a candidate and see if they are a good fit for your company, and make sure you are a good fit for them. If a temp-to-hire is a strong employee, you have the choice to offer a full-time position, which gives you flexibility.

Some businesses employ temporary workers as an excellent and cost-efficient way to recruit and test the abilities of new workers before signing them on full time. This is a smart idea, and many HR departments find it also helps reduce turn over. Hiring a temp gives you an opportunity to see them in action, assess their strengths and weaknesses and evaluate their work ethic. Interviews give “glimpses,” hiring temps gives the “full picture.”
