Football Signals For Hiring

With autumn comes pumpkin flavored everything, vibrant leaf colors as they fall from their trees and FOOTBALL! We are nearing the halfway mark in this year’s NFL football season and there are a few teams on a winning streak (New England Patriots) and some on a losing streak (Cleveland Browns) so far this season. Just as every Sunday is game day for football players, Human Resources (HR) departments constantly have their game face on in order to recruit, hire, screen and onboard new candidates. Employers want to continue to run down the field to the ultimate goal of victory for both themselves and new hires.

HR professionals do not want to drop the ball or get unnecessary flags that could make them lose the hiring game. Knowing the right hiring, background screening and onboarding signals, just like referee calls, will help your company become a winning team. Your company does not want to receive a “Personal Foul” for failing to conduct a criminal background screen or get docked for “Illegal Procedure” for failing to comply with Form I-9 compliance. Businesses want to achieve a “Touchdown” with engaged and productive employees.

Sterling℠ translates the world of football referee signals into the hiring process to make sure your company is at the top of their hiring game with the “Football Signals For Hiring” Infographic.
