Adam Robinson, Hireology’s CEO and co-founder, was featured in the May edition of Canadian Business Franchise. As a leading franchise publication, Canadian Business Franchise aims to encourage and support those working within the franchise space.
In the article, “Hiring For Your Store” (on page 22), Robinson explains employees are the top expense for franchise locations. However, 90 percent of franchises do not have any hiring system to fulfill these needs. Considering that each bad hire (earning an hourly wage) costs roughly $5,600, it’s alarming that so few franchise systems have implemented technologies to support their hiring needs. Moreover, research consistently shows technology-based hiring systems can improve a company’s hiring success rate by 40 percent.
In addition to using a hiring system with a proven-track record, there are a variety of other steps franchisees should take when hiring. Take the interview process for example. Many hiring managers are not prepared when it comes time to meet with applicants. Whether they don’t know what questions to ask or make the ultimate hiring decision based on a “gut-feeling,” these bad interviewing habits often result in unqualified hires.
Hiring the right person for the job starts with the resume review. From the get-go, a scalable hiring system like Hireology can help alert you to high-risk candidates. Streamlining the entire process, a system can help you make the right hiring decision – and feel confident with it.
