      ACT QUICKLY
      AND MAKE A
      COMPETITIVE OFFER
    • 1. ACT QUICKLY AND MAKE A
      COMPETITIVE OFFER
      Simply offering someone a job doesn’t guarantee the person will take it. This phase of the recruiting process can be complex
      Act Quickly
      Any delay in making an offer can cause you to lose the best applicant. A speedy offer demonstrates your desire to have this person join your company. It shows you think quickly and respect the candidate’s time.
      Make A Competitive Offer
      Before entering negotiations, get the lowdown on ongoing salary trends. Any offer you make should be fair to the candidate and in line with the standards of your industry and your company. Review recent postings on Monster.com to get a handle on what similar companies are offering in terms of salary and benefits.

      COMPENSATION, AND

    • 2. BE CREATIVE WITH COMPENSATION, AND
      PUT IT IN WRITING
      Be Creative With Compensation
      Many small employers find it difficult to compete on salary alone. When you can’t offer a high starting salary, consider other financial incentives, such as stock options, profit sharing and signing bonuses. Candidates who want to work for smaller companies, can be enticed with “lifestyle” benefits that help them balance work and life, such as flex-time and teleworkopportunities
      Say It And Write It
      It’s generally best to make an offer in person; you can explain all aspects of your salary and benefits package, while the candidate can ask any questions. Avoid misunderstandings by formalizing your job offer in writing. Along with starting salary, include details such as job title, responsibilities, location, etc. Be careful not to imply more than you are sure you can deliver

      KNOW WHEN TO STOP

      KNOW WHEN TO STOP
      Talk Up Your Business
      Presenting an offer is the time to promote the benefits of working for your company. It could be anything, like cutting-edge opportunities, new chances for advancement, staff recognition and bonus programs, or your unique corporate culture
      Know When To Stop
      Not every candidate is going to jump at your offer. Some candidates may hesitate as a negotiating ploy, thinking you’ll make a stronger offer. Others may be unsure that the job is a good match. Try to discover the source of the indecision. If a candidate is looking for a greater salary, determine if it aligns with the person’s potential contribution. But pleading your case to a candidate with serious reservations could backfire if the person has second thoughts and jumps ship after only a few months
