Secrets of Sales Success - By Dale Little
Traditionally, an action plan maps out steps that an employee will take to achieve goals that will assist them in their growth and development in a company or industry. I propose to you, that action plans be implemented for all major company tasks, i.e. hiring, marketing, training, product development, and the list goes on. LetÕs focus on an action plan for the new hire process.
Employers, it is obviously your goal to locate and hire optimal employees. In establishing your short-term goals, which will lead to the achievement of this ultimate goal, letÕs ascertain these components of the process:
¥Position funding approval
¥Time frame for hiring process
¥Development of CV/Resume verification process
¥Know and understand the responsibilities of the available positions
Answers to the following will assist you in more effectively achieving your hiring goal:
¥ How will I advertise the open position(s)?
¥ Is there a pay scale?
¥ Do I have criteria that determine starting salary based on each open positionÕs requirements and/or prospective employeeÕs
¥ How much time and money will I expend on finding the perfect employee?
¥ Will it be helpful to include a peer in the interview process?
Employees, often times when the job market is down itÕs not unusual to hear those in the market for new employment say ÒIÕll take anything.Ó Maybe you will, but often times thatÕs not to your advantage or for the good of the company hiring you. The reality is every employee candidate is looking for the perfect job. Be honest with yourself when you make your action plan. What is your true long-term goal?
Develop short-term goals that will aid you in locating a position in which you will flourish and be a valued asset to your new company. Essential parts of your process include:
¥ Determine most efficient job search methods (job fair, internet, networking, newspaper, etc.)
¥ Develop and maintain a current CV/Resume
¥ Be familiar with all major aspects of your potential employer (i.e. products & services offered, locations, target clients, etc.)
¥ Know and understand the primary responsibilities of the available position(s)
¥ Prepare a list of what you uniquely have to offer (beyond what your resume states)
Answers to the following will assist you in more efficiently achieving your employment goal.
¥ What geographic area is feasible and appropriate for your current personal circumstances?
¥ How much time & money will you expend pursuing a position in a specific company?
¥ What continuing education will you be pursuing during your job search?
¥ What will you do daily to maintain optimism and enthusiasm?
Action plans are tools. Each is unique to the individual writing it. You know the requirements of your process. Incorporate those into your plan. Revise your plan as circumstances dictate. I encourage you to brainstorm with colleagues and peers. Everyone has a different perspective, no matter how minor the difference. That difference may be the key to shortening your process and truly achieving the ultimate goal youÕve set.
