Your business depends on having the right people doing the right jobs. As the job market gets more competitive and companies increasingly vie with each other to attract the best talent, they run the risk of hiring too quickly—too rashly—and ending up with the wrong people. Thanks to technological innovations, more and more companies are able to put telecommuters on their payrolls. But, as Ashley Wilson explains in “How to Hire Remote Employees,” they need to take certain steps to be sure that they’re making good hires.

In “Realistic Job Previews: 5 Questions Recruiters Should Ask” Sharlyn Lauby discusses one hiring strategy that, if properly implemented, can pay off big for companies and candidates alike.

Companies that want to make good hires can’t have hostile work environments, so hiring managers should pay attention to the advice Jessica Miller-Merrell offers in “How HR Can Decrease Sexual Harassment in the Workplace.”

Does your organization have a plan to meet its staffing needs in the near and long-term future? Whether you know that you need to reevaluate your hiring strategy or are just starting to think about this subject, Advanced Resources can help you figure out what you need to do to get to where you want to go!
