Staff recruitment is an underrated aspect of business success. The vast majority of sports complex startups treat recruiting as something that they’ll figure out as they go. Going into the process with a plan and practices already set in place will help to ensure you find the right candidates for your job more consistently — and with less effort. Today, Sports Facility Management will discuss some recruitment tactics your sports complex should follow to help you find the right people for the right positions.
Treat Your Staff Recruitment Like Your Marketing
Too often, sports complex startups undervalue the recruitment process and fail to treat it with the care and attention they give to customers. Recruiting is an essential step to growth and should be treated as such. To understand this idea let’s use an example. Imagine you receive a high-quality lead to host a big event at your sports complex. Would you wait three days to call that lead? Of course not, you would reach out to the event holders and do everything in your power to impress and sign them.A quality job candidate who turns into an important part of your business can be worth much more than a single event in the long run. Yet many businesses treat their potential candidates as if they are common. If you happen to attract a great potential hire, treat them to a great hiring experience to ensure they choose your company.
Gauge Your Hiring Time and Plan Ahead
A common mistake many sports complex startups run into is waiting too long to hire for positions that are critical to your operations. When you need a person right away to put out proverbial fires, you will be unable to wait for the right person. Your rush to fill the position will prohibit you from having the patience that is required to find great talent. Of course, you don’t want to hire too early either. The cost to your company of a bad hire can be very high, and startups can rarely afford to absorb that kind of lost investment. Getting the timing of your hiring process right means giving yourself plenty of time to find talent so you don’t find yourself desperate or paying for someone that is not necessary for your business.
