    Perspectives have shifted dramatically since covid came into focus in 2020, in every area of a person’s life, from relationships to socialising and most pertinently, employment. The media was awash with stories of people leaving their jobs and while hospitality may have been the hardest hit sector initially, this spotlight on job satisfaction made processes such as employees assessment even more important than previously.

    Many management teams have no clue as to why a staff member might be leaving an organisation and other teams may only have a vague idea, but our employee(s) assessment service is here to help you bypass this question altogether. We provide you with a tailored solution that will help you to retain staff who are productive, interested, and passionate about pursuing a career with you. Reviewing your own procedures internally is only effective to a certain extent as an objective third party with years of experience in enhancing employment assessment processes can streamline your processes while emphasising the most effective way to retain top talent.

    Since our recruitment agency began in 2004, we have been developing our recruitment processes and consultancy services to be a leading recruitment agency in the UK. While we are adept at utilising a range of tools to source top talent, our employee(s) assessment programme also helps you to retain top talent. We diagnose improvements within your existing procedures, get to know your organisation and proceed to recommend the right course of action for your business.

    In short, we stop candidates from leaving within the first few months and beyond. In full, we help you to create a structured environment in line with effective interview techniques that not only recruit the most committed candidates, but invite them to stay with you.

    The way a business approaches recruitment naturally changes according to the sector you are in. when it comes to recruitment, engineering has its own set of particular demands. Ultimately, you want to attract long-term talent whether the positions you are hiring for are temporary, short term or for a lengthier role within your company.

    Give A Problem To Solve

    Think about the mind of an engineer. Scientifically minded, practical, and prone to positioning themselves as problem solvers wherever possible, individuals who choose engineering want to provide value. This puts you in a good position to demonstrate exactly how they could be of service: Which projects will they be working on? What will completing the project achieve and mean? What will they as an individual be contributing to your company? If you incorporate these into the narrative of your job adverts and during the interview, you have a much higher chance of attracting suitable potential candidates to your company. Recruitment, engineering-wise, involves tapping into the engineer’s need to use their skills to solve a problem.

    Employee Engagement

    It is important to ensure your current talent pool feels valued and content within their role. After all, maintaining employee engagement ensures you will avoid having to starting the hiring process all over again after you found the candidates you were looking for. Engaged employees will help to promote your business for you as they will recommend your company to past colleagues and friends at other companies: essentially, motivated engineers help to facilitate recruitment (engineering-wise) for you.

    Contact an Expert

    If there are any parts of your recruitment service you think could be optimised by experts, the specialist team at Precision People have years of experience and a variety of recruitment services to offer. As a leading UK recruitment engineering agency, the quality of the services are verified by the speciality of the team. Get in touch today for the best chance you have of success.

    Do you think you're a great boss or manager? Are you good at rallying your troops and getting them on board with new ideas? Or do they run for the hills? Here are 4 proven useful tips to make you a great boss.

    1. They ask a lot of questions

    Great bosses constantly ask their employees questions, to get them thinking more and help them and the business grow. While experience has value, people can't learn when that wisdom is presented on a platter or forced down their throat. That's why great bosses ask questions that will spark, in the employee's own mind, the thought processes that will make that employee successful.

    2. They are mavericks

    When managers depend upon their "common sense" to solve problems, they seldom assess whether their hunches actually paid off. As a result, the same problems keep cropping up month after month, year after year. Great managers think outside the box and break the rules to get results. Great bosses also know their employees and their employee's interests, and manage according to those interests. In other words, getting the best from your team requires applied psychology rather than common sense.

    3. They don't manage the bottom line.

    The "bottom line"–your quarterly or yearly numbers–only tells the story of what's happened in the past and to manage by it is like looking at last year's holiday snaps before deciding where to book your holiday this year. It tells you what has happened – but not what is going to happen in the future. Really great bosses know that the only way to get good numbers in the future is to keep your attention on what's going on right now in your market and industry and the activities that your employees are undertaking to take advantage of the present reality. What are they doing right now which will get results?

    4. Great bosses put the employees first (even before the client)

    When managers preach and practice the longstanding theory to put the customer first, they overlook their employees, who are the people actually responsible for creating and nurturing the customer experience.

    Customers can immediately sense when the employees of the firms from which they buy are miserable, overworked, or under trained. When's the last time you walked into a shop to overhear staff moaning and looking stressed out? It's not a comfortable environment. Truly great bosses concentrate on making certain that their employees are happy, healthy and can do the work
