Often times different industries and businesses require staff to work during “non-traditional” work hours. It can be a challenge to locate individuals who can accommodate a unique work schedule. Below are some tips to guide your search for people who are willing to work on odd hours.
1. Tailor Your Search
Often times people who are willing to work odd hours cannot be located through general advertisements or flyers. First, clearly identify what sort of individual would be the best for the role. Using this information, determine who your target audience would be. It could be the case that your local college could be a good resource for your company. Students often interested in earning extra income and have flexibility in their schedules.
2. Be Clear and Straightforward
While screening applicants and interviewing candidates, be upfront about the hours required for the position. Ultimately, the goal in filling this position is to have someone who is able to best fulfill the duties of the role. Open dialogue around expected hours ensures that both parties are made aware of expectations.
3. Call Upon Referrals
Current employees can often be useful in recruiting new employees. When a position involving non-traditional hours becomes available, spread the news to current employees and ask them if they know of any qualified leads. Often times drawing upon the connections of current employees can lead to new hires that are a great fit for the company and role.
