A thorough interview process will help you find someone who is an ideal fit for your business and find the standout candidates, making the actual selection easy.
As part of your final assessments before offering the job, you may do some introspection on:
- Do they fit your company values?
- Will they fit in with your team?
- If you have a manager or foreman, will they work well with them?
- Are there any potential conflicts?
- Do they have the skills you required?
You may also weigh up if they don’t have the skills you want, are you prepared to train them to perform the role to its fullest?
If you had someone with you during the interview process, you might ask them about their thoughts and assessment of the candidate.
Different candidates will have different skills, and at varying levels, identify what you need most and what skills and duties you can train people to do.
That's it; the last part is making your employment offer and starting the onboarding process.
