The Power of Knowing Your Staff
Hiring the right staff for your event is crucial, here are a few tips on what to look for.
“Behind every successful event comes hours of rostering. During the lead up, this can become a daunting task, but when applied well, rostering can be the catalyst for a fruitful event. As an Event Manager, rostering is a crucial role -placing an individual into the right shift is more than just sorting out their availability.
The first step is to understand your event. The second is to understand the roles required, and lastly, finding the right candidates to fill these important roles.
Each event is unique in the way organizers want to represent themselves. We understand workforce’s are the doorway for good brand re-enforcement; finding the best candidate fit for each role is therefore crucial.
Rosterfy’s user friendly interface creates an automatic profile of each potential candidate. It includes their performance from past events plus event criteria such as, car license, RSA, Working with Children’s Check, First Aid etc. This helps Event Managers chose candidates with piece of mind, knowing they are motivated workers and are fully qualified – ready to roll when on site!
Key things to look for in event staff is also soft skills – you can assess this in a face-to- face or group interview.
How are the individual’s communication skills? How do they interact with others? Are they approachable? Do they smile? These are key soft skills that when applied ensure a successful event.
