Hiring and firing is the easy bit, right? It’s getting the CV’s through the door that is the hard part.
Recruitment for the hair and beauty industry always seems a bit of a struggle and never clear cut on where to go and what to do to ensure you have the best team working in your salon.
The home grown stylist’s and therapists will always be the best, but with times changing, we need to change our approach to recruitment. Instead of waiting for the CV’s to come through on Indeed, why not reach out to the hundreds of CV’s that have been uploaded on the site.
We have put hours of research into this area, along with trials being tested as we speak to see what produces results and what doesn’t.
In recent years it has become much harder to recruit the best team for your salon business. We are all looking for the same thing, that perfect, highly skilled team player.
What is your salon recruitment plan? How will you seek new employees this year to create the best team?
Same Actions = Same Results.
Salon owners need to think outside the box and reach for something new so potential candidates choose your salon business and not the salon next door.
Put yourself in the candidates eyes, what do they think when they see a recruitment advert for your salon?
“What that salon…definitely not?”
It’s all about your brand, your image, the reputation that you already have or still currently building. Do they want a piece of what you have to offer them?
There are many online recruitment agencies and offline platforms out there to advertise and recruit on, but without the brand in place “your image”, candidates will not come forward to work for you.
It doesn’t matter where you choose to advertise or how much money you throw at it. If you do not have a great brand/reputation, no amount of money or advertising will have you see a pile of CV’s on your desk.
