Find workers who fit with the company, not perfect ones

With comprehensive HRIS, human resource departments can be sure to find applicants who will not only fit into existing office culture, but will also contribute to daily operations.

HR managers often struggle with trying to find the perfect candidate for an open position with their companies. However, perfection is not what a business should search for, because perfection does not exist. With the right HRIS software, though, human resource departments can see what procedures best benefit the organization and thus have a better understanding of what they need to search for in an applicant.

Business Insider explained in a recent article that it’s unrealistic for employers to expect to find a candidate who went to the ideal school, has the necessary experience and says all the right things in an interview. With such over-the-top expectations, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that applicants might attempt to hide their flaws through the interview process.

“Employers: realize that awesome hires cannot be perfect,” the article said. “Look for hires who have flaws that are complemented by the rest of your team, and have strengths that can complement your team’s existing flaws.”

According to Dave Kerpen, co-founder of Likeable Media, using technological innovations like social media sites can assist in finding the right employees. He explained on the business blog Inc. that LinkedIn searches paired with Twitter can let HR managers search for desired skill sets. It’s important to hire an individual who can fit into the company culture as well as contribute to daily operations.

With workforce management software, it will be much easier for human resource departments to have a full understanding of what tactics and procedures work well for a company. Then, hiring managers can be sure to look for candidates who have the right skill sets and personalities to properly mesh with an existing workforce. HR software solutions not only keep a business organized, they can help them comprehensively plan for the future.
