Your goal as an early childhood leader is to hire teachers who are a good cultural fit for your school. It is important to be clear on what attitudes, thoughts and behaviors are expected. Develop your own ideally-defined employee before you start the hiring process.
Components of Retention:
Attract - Identify your talent by defining what character, competence, chemistry and culture you are looking for. These employee traits need to fit within your school culture and your staff brand. Your talent attraction strategy should display exactly who you are as an employer to the talent that you want to attract.
Engage - The Discovery process is the process of interviewing and getting to know your candidate.
Best discovery questions:
Tell me about a time…
Reflect on what you could have done better…
Train and Retain - Onboarding can significantly improve employee engagement and reduce turnover within your organization. Onboarding is a series of events, including orientation, that helps newly-hired employees understand how to be successful in their day-to-day job and how their work contributes to the overall business and culture of the school.
IntelliKid Systems Employee Management System (EMS) brings communication and marketing automation to your recruitment efforts. Candidates move seamlessly through the hiring process from submitting applications through onboarding and even post-employment communication. One of the best features of EMS is the ability for the candidate to self-schedule their interview with your availability by only having to change the candidate's status! As Beth says, "figure out what you can automate'', so let us help you automate the hiring process.
