How many managers in the Payroll and HR industry find it difficult to recruit good experienced staff in their local areas? It is obviously more difficult if you have a large team with a high turnover of staff, and of course there are recruitment agencies and websites that make the search for the right candidate much simpler but those areas of support do not come without additional costs.
Eira Consulting has worked with payroll and HR teams across the country establishing how to identify their exact requirements prior to embarking on the recruitment process. We will look at alternative ways of developing your own staff, promoting from within where possible, and ensure all staff have a personal development plan which in the long term will eliminate the requirement of recruiting experienced staff. We will support you in creating succession plans that will give individuals focus and challenges to work towards to develop their own experience and skills.
If you do find you have to recruit, we will support you through the whole process, looking at the job descriptions and whether they need to be re-designed, perform job analysis looking at the specific skills and personal characteristics an individual needs to perform well in that particular role. Eira Consulting will also support you in preparing the right competency based interview questions, specifically for payroll and HR staff, including where necessary payroll and HR skills test to guarantee accuracy and experience. We will also support you through the interview process, especially for senior roles, where it is vital that the right candidate is selected.
