One of the most valuable and expensive investments a growing organization can make is in its human capital. Hiring the right people at the right time and with the right skills is critical to keeping your business operational and profitable. Identifying and securing the right individual requires a strategic approach that may include a trial position.
The “try-them-before-hiring” process is often associated with temporary employment agencies that can be a great resource for organizations who are looking to fill positions quickly. But the cost and technical skill level of the employment pool may not match your company’s needs. Large organizations are accustomed to strategic hiring processes and have taken advantage of working with colleges to secure internship positions. Internships are not a new concept, but this strategy is often overlooked by small businesses.
