Do you feel overwhelmed about hiring a new employee? Are you too swamped to even think about sorting through resumes or holding interviews? Or maybe you just don’t know where to start. That’s okay; we’re here to help. Let’s walk through what to expect when you work with a staffing firm like That’s Good HR.

For starters, just get in touch. You can reach us through our website, send an email, or just pick up the phone (317-469-4141). You’ll be connected with Tiffany Moore or Mary Springer, who have been working with businesses like you for decades. They’re happy to walk you through the process. No strings attached and no pressure. Just a friendly chat to find out how we can help.

If you have a specific position in mind that you’re hoping to fill, it’s helpful to gather information before you call. Here’s what you should try to nail down:

  • Placement type (temp, temp-to-hire, or direct hire)
  • Preferred working days and hours
  • Targeted start date (and end date, if temporary)
  • Basic company background
  • The culture of the company & department
  • Duties and expectations
  • Necessary skill sets
  • Desired experience
  • Ideal personality
  • Pay (if it were an in-house employee)
  • Interview preference (whether you want to be involved or just let us handle it)

Next it’s time for you to take a break. Phew! We’ll wade through all the info you provide, comb through our candidate pool, and get back to you with possible matches (often within a day!). But our work isn’t done yet.

After the initial call, we’ll pay you an in-person visit so we can meet with you personally. It’s a great way to get to know you and your needs better, to answer your questions, and tour your facility or office. This visit also allows us to better describe your workplace and company culture to candidates, making a better match possible.

Finally, we concentrate our efforts on finding the best fit for your position. Once you sign on, our goal is to send you 3 resumes within 24 hours. From there, your feedback lets us know if we’re hitting the mark. Next we schedule interviews, handling all direct communication with the candidate so it’s super easy for you. We spend time with selected candidates, doing face-to-face interviews and getting to know them well. If background checks or assessments are involved, we take care of the time and expense of those, too! Once the right match is chosen, you’re off and running! Even then we continue to handle details and expenses for you like health insurance, holiday pay, payroll taxes (including unemployment), and vacation pay.

Hiring your next employee doesn’t have to be an overwhelming task. Staffing firms like That’s Good HR are here to take the burden of finding the right candidate off your shoulders. One quick call is all you need to get started. Ready to get the ball rolling? Contact us today!
