Six Ways to Have a Great Relationship with Winston Resources
1) Advance notice.
Have an upcoming project or other big staffing need? Try to notify us as far in advance as possible. The more time we have to recruit, the better candidates you'll get. And when you have a last-minute need, we understand. Just help us to prioritize your hiring requirements, so we can refer the best fit candidates.
2) Ask for updates.
Be sure to let us know when you'd like to see progress reports on how your orders are being filled. If we ever run into a situation where we can't find the right person, we'll let you know in plenty of time to contact another firm.
3) Provide great job descriptions.
The toughest positions we are asked to fill are those where the requirements are not well-defined. The more you know about the skills, experience and personality traits of the job candidates you seek, the more accurately we'll be able to fill your requirements.
4) Give lots of feedback.
A great staffing relationship is built on open communication. Let us know what you like, or don't like, about our service. Challenge us to find ways to improve. And ask us for suggestions that might help you improve your hiring process. We work with hundreds of employers, and we can use our experience to make your hiring a lot easier.
5) Benchmark pay rates.
You'll get better job candidates and fill your openings faster when you offer competitive wages. At the same time, you don't want to overpay for talent. We can help you determine the correct pay rates based on what others are paying for similar positions.
6) Be a great employer.
Try to create a welcoming atmosphere for the temporary workers on assignment with you. Give them a strong, positive introduction to your company and their co-workers. Clearly define your performance expectations. And work with us to provide honest and direct feedback. The more positive your work environment, the more people will want to work for you!
