RECRUITMENT


THE GREATER THE RISK, THE GREATER THE GAIN


‘There is every chance you will gain if the individual has been developed and trained in another industry, because they are very likely to bring ideas and quite possibly solutions to issues or problems.’


need to be considered carefully, from both the employee and employer’s point of view.


Obviously there is a risk when


recruiting someone who has the experience you require but not the industry knowledge, but this can have actually have great benefits.


When recruiting new staff for any given position, is it wise to recruit people from other industries?


Tis could apply to a transport manager, sales manager, machine operator or contracts manager, but although in our experience it seems that all companies want to recruit staff with backgrounds in this industry, this is obviously getting harder as the industry contracts.


We have found in the last couple of years that a great number of people have had to relocate or are travelling greater distances to do the same job for a company in another part of the UK.


In many instances, these are office-based positions not just field -based, and we have seen that this has been detrimental to the success of the business involved. Relocation is not an issue, and properly managed this can work well; however, it does


You are going to employ an individual who has no preconceived ideas on how the job should be done (“but I have always done it this way”) - one could question is this the reason that the person is in the job market in the first place? Tere is also every chance you will gain if the individual has been developed and trained in another industry, because they are very likely to bring ideas and quite possibly solutions to issues or problems that you may have harboured for a number of years without realising it.


Tey are also probably going to cost less to employ.


In an ever-tightening market, which is what we are currently faced with, it is interesting to note that many companies are fighting about successfully recruiting experienced field- based staff, especially in sales. Tere is understandable, but sometimes unrealistic pressure, on generating sales, and possibly a false belief that the best and quickest solution is to employ someone who seems good and works for a direct competitor.


Many of us started in this Industry at some point,


inexperienced, eager to impress, hungry for success, tenacious and determined. With very hard work, management and guidance we succeeded and repaid our employers for believing in us. It is great to be working with some clients who are taking on and taking the time to develop and train younger sales people who deserve the opportunity to prove their worth.


With good training and proper guidance these individuals


are achieving more than their experienced and possibly complacent counterparts, at half the employment cost!!


We have to start giving those who deserve it, the opportunity, they are our industry’s future, and your risk is not as great as you may think. It also sets you apart from your competitors.
