Champion does a job that no other employment service does. We take both sides of the equation, the hiring employer and the hourly candidate, and evaluate their practical standpoint and psychological standpoint. Basically, we want to find out what is going to attract the right employee to the right employer. The key is making sure, especially with hourly hiring, to find a hard-worker who fits well with the company. To do so, Champion has devised a Bill of Rights for our clients to live by while they search for the right employees. Champions Bill of Rights Dont lie to your candidates, ever. Not under any circumstance whether it be in the interview, on the first day on the job, or any time on the job. People can usually tell when they are being lied to, though they may not say it. Someone who is lied to will definitely not give you their best. Take the time to train your employees, so they know they are doing the job right and take pride in it. Assign your hourly employee to someone
Doesnt anyone want to work anymore? (A common cry heard round the C-Suite.) The fact is: No, not really. At least it doesnt seem like it. And yes, there are many who still do. The tight candidate market is to blame for the apparent availability of lesser-motivated people. Tie the politics of socialist leanings into that, and the word EARN has been eroded from our popular vocabulary. No political or social evangelist even comes close to talking about EARNING or living to be ACCOUNTABLE. So where are the good ones? Come along for our ride and well show you how to dig under the rocks and what to do once you have found them: Where are the good ones? They are right in front of you. In front of us. Champion specializes in shop floor, distribution, office and technical talent acquisition. We interview more people in one week than the typical HR Pro interviews in a year. We get our best candidates from personal referrals. Good people tend to know or hang with, other good people.
What to expect: Together, our Purpose is to create a durable commitment to the organization and the work itself for the Worker. To Connect, Engage and Collaborate with the worker and our clients. Our Purpose is to reduce hiring issues. Increase your workforce productivity. And increase retention. We are NOT an Employment Agency, even though we are here to fill your job/career/opportunity openings. We dont slam bodies at jobs/ you: We interview each potential worker IN person. This is done by at least one experienced professional. In many cases it can be 3-4 Champion staff. We look for skills, character, culture match and intentions. We have been thoroughly trained in behavioral evaluations and all the things relentless recruiters find to eliminate the paycheck people from sincere job/ career-seekers. Champion has a thought-through platform, Hiring With Purpose designed to reduce hiring issues, increase productivity, increase retention and positively impact your bottom line. It
Before hiring understand the worker mentality: Im an Hourly Worker. Want me to be productive and stick around? Im just like you: I want to make it to tomorrow and have that day be a little better than today. I want to survive, maybe even thrive. HELP me do that. Dont lie to me. Not in the interview, not the first day on the job, never. I am street smart and can tell a lie or liar a mile away. I may not tell you that I know you are telling me something that isnt true or is skewed to fool me, Ill just give you less than my best, and leave when I can. I dont need a job where I get lied to and where people think that it makes them smart. Take the time to train me. You said you would. It is one of the reason I decided to work for you. SHOW me how to be good, not just go through the motions. Train me to be safe. Ill get it. Then once I have shown I can do that job and be productive, train me to do more. Assign me to someone who is a real person, a person who cares. Industrial companies have
125 people. 2 shifts plus off shifts. 3 years ago they had 200+% turnover. The facility was far from hitting their needed numbers. We began staffing their facility about two years ago. In a meeting today with this client we were told they are now (have been for a while) hitting their numbers. Management has now received metrics bonuses for a year. There are no openings to take care of. Out of their entire staff only a few (of their own hires, not ours) are on the bubble. Happy HR Director, Happy Operations Manager. Happy Director. Happy divisional President. Happy Champion. All because we said we would resolve their issues.
Secrets to Hiring and Retention: Secrets? There are none. Thats simply to get you to read this. Or so say the marketing people. But Ill bet you will learn something. Right now, you have your own way of hiring. Probably 85% of your system is good. This will make it better. Executive Summary: Understand the actual job you are trying to fill, not just the HR manual job description. Understand the actual DUTIES of the work. AGREE to the skills necessary to do the duties. What can and should be trained? Answer this question as though your perfect candidate is sitting across the desk from you, right now: (from THEIR point of view, not yours): WHY would a highly qualified person want to work for YOUR company, in this position? Plan to onboard potential workforce members properly. Analyze and identify a reasonable profile of the person to be hired. This should describe the skills, talents, abilities and the types of quot;experiencequot; that could/ will fit. It should also describe
Creating a durable commitment to the organization and the work itself. Immersion focuses on your most costly and potentially your highest payback investment: Your People. Now, and in the future. Immersion of new hires is not a human resources fad. It is a proven business strategy that saves money, increases productivity and can generate a more profitable culture. The Immersion process creates a COMMON FUTURE and COMMON PURPOSE for all participants by aligning Expectations, Values, Purpose for the customer, Mission and Goals to the participants talents and aspirations. It engages intellect and emotions. Immersion is not a quick fix for organizational issues. It does not come in a box, nor can it be learned at a luncheon seminar. It is a professional tool that needs to be custom fit to your organization and your desired future. Champion uses the term Immersion in place of Onboarding. It better describes the desired results. The basics of Immersing a new hire(or re-immersing an existing
