There are lots of signs that will tell you that your company’s in-house recruiters are in need of training. Some of these are:
 
Poor Employee Retention and High Employee Turnover
Most businesses today find it difficult to retain their employees over long periods of time. Most employees are always on the lookout for better job opportunities. But if your company is facing unusually high employee turnover and you are unable to retain your employees in spite of your best efforts, you should take it as a sign that your company’s in-house recruiters seriously need recruitment training. If, in spite of devising and implementing employee retention strategies, you are unable to improve employee retention, you might want to explore the possibility that your company’s in-house recruiters aren’t recruiting individuals that fit into the unique work environment and culture of your company. A candidate should not merely be suitable for the position for which he or she is being recruited; he or she should also have the potential of fitting perfectly into the unique work environment and culture of your company. 
 
Good recruitment training will not only enable your company’s in-house recruiters to find and recruit candidates that are most suitable for their respective positions, but it will also enable them to identify candidates that are likely to easily fit into your company and those that are not likely to do so. This way your company will be saved from the hassle of recruiting and then finding replacements for employees who will leave you after a short while. In short, Investing in the training of your company’s in-house recruiters will help you improve employee retention and reduce employee turnover by hiring employees that are not only suitable for their respective positions but are also suited to the work environment and culture of your company. 
 
Low Employee Productivity and Efficiency
If the productivity and efficiency of some of your employees is low, and apparently poor management or low employee morale isn’t the cause, there is a great chance that the unsuitability of such employees for their respective positions or their inability to fit into the unique work environment and culture of your company is responsible for their low productivity and their efficiency. As mentioned earlier, good recruitment training enables your company’s in-house recruiters to find and recruit candidates that are most likely to fit into the unique work environment and culture of your company, while also being most suitable for their respective positions. That means, by investing in the training of your company’s in-house recruiters, you will be able to hire employees who will contribute toward the success of your business by working in the most productive and efficient manner.
 
High Number of Complaints Against Employees
If the management of your company is receiving a high number of complaints against certain employees from customers, there is a great possibility that such employees’ unsuitability for their respective positions is the catalyst behind such complaints. On the other hand, if the management of your company is receiving an unusually high number of complaints against certain employees, from co-workers, especially if such employees have recently been hired, there is a great chance that such employees have been unable to fit into the unique work environment and culture of your company, which is resulting in their having adjustment issues with co-workers. Had your company’s in-house recruiters been able to find candidates that were suitable for the positions they were being recruited for and identify candidates that were more likely to fit into the unique work environment and culture of your company, the trouble of dealing with the kinds of complaints mentioned above could have been avoided. That means investing in the training of your company’s in-house recruiters will enable your company to lower the number of complaints against employees either from customers or co-workers.
 
If you notice any of the above signs, you should consider engaging the services of a good recruitment training service. And when it comes to good recruitment training, Brisbane-based business coaching and Management Consulting service Glimmer Management Consulting is one of the best in the country.
