Tips for Hiring in California

The COVID-19 pandemic changed so much, but one of the biggest changes was how so many people were told to stay home from work. Some worked from home, but others couldn’t do their jobs from their houses. A lot of people had the time to figure out exactly what they truly want to do with their lives.

The time and unemployment checks have led to a lot of people choosing not to go back to their jobs. Employers need workers. There is a shortage across the country, but California has seen a particularly large labor deficit. At one point, nearly one million workers had disappeared from the workforce. Whether you are a large company or are beginning a start-up, below are some tips for hiring in California.

Consider Remote Hires

If you can hire remote workers, you should consider it. There are many workers who aren’t taking jobs unless they are remote. This is for a variety of reasons and the data shows that employees are more productive when they work from home. A lot of companies have had a hard time accepting the remote work shift, and if you’re one of them you have your reasons. But when you need employees to get the job done, it might be necessary to hire remotely. There are plenty of benefits to it. For example, you can look across California for the best employee for the position. You can’t fill every position with a remote worker, but if you can try to accept this change in the economy.

Run Background Checks

When you are hiring, it can be difficult to know exactly who the person is. People lie about their education, experience, and personal lives. One way you can get a handle on what you are dealing with is to run background checks. When you run a background check on prospective employees, you can learn a lot. Depending on the background check and the person, you can find out their criminal history, employment history, and other details like their address and education.

You might not find anything from a background check, but even the smallest inconsistency can reveal lies or miscommunication. With so many capable employees in California, running a background check is something you should do to ensure that you are dealing with someone honest and trustworthy.

Recruit from Colleges

In California, there is no shortage of great colleges and universities. Furthermore, there are so many students that came to the state for school. They might go back home if they don’t have a job opportunity. Depending on the position you are trying to fill, recruiting from colleges is a great way to hire some quality talent for a more reasonable salary.

Hiring straight from college also gives you the chance to start their training off on the right foot. You won’t have to deal with bad training from the past. You won’t have to retrain them. Instead, you can train an employee who will grow with the business. When you are recruiting from colleges, keep multiple skills in mind and think about how the person could grow from the business. When you do, you could find a person who will thrive with your company.

Vet on Social Media

Another thing you should do when you are hiring in California is to vet the employee on social media. Californians tend to share more on social media than people from other states. You can find out a lot about a person from their profiles on social platforms. You can see what they are like, how they operate, and, maybe, if they’re lying about something. Vetting on social media has become a tool used by all kinds of different professionals and companies. It’s usually worth a glance.

Hiring in California is dynamic, especially right now. There are so many people in California, yet there remains a labor shortage. Whether you are trying to hire for jobs at a café or a receptionist position at a start-up, there are plenty of different tactics to hire employees. You should use all the tools at your disposal to find the right person for the position. When you are doing your best to find employees, you should pull out all the stops to fill the jobs you have available.
