What Are The Hiring Secrets Of Top Multifamily Managers?


Multifamily managers face many challenges in hiring the right talent these days so here are a few secrets from this week’s Grace Hill training tips.

Just look at the most recent National Apartment Association Jobs Report and you will see the challenges multifamily managers face.

Hiring mistakes can cost a company 15 times an employee’s base salary in addition to harming performance and causing stress for other employees.

We talked to some of the top hiring managers in the multifamily industry to learn their secrets to attracting the best talent and avoiding mistakes.

Here are the hiring principles they live by:

Multifamily managers know the best talent gets referred to you

Referrals are by far the most reliable source for good employees.

Referrals from your business network average a nearly 75% success rate!

Also consider referrals from an external recruiter, an internal recruiter and top performers at your company. A company referral program that rewards employees for referring successful new employees can be a great motivator.

 Ask questions and listen to the answers

A surprising number of interviews contain very few questions.

Even if you already have a good feeling about a candidate, the interview process is an important opportunity for you to get a feel for one another and determine whether your work and communication styles are compatible.

Express curiosity about candidates.

  • What attracted them to the job and your company?
  • Do you know what their career goals are?
  • What are they unwilling to do?

Listen to their responses and take notes. Not only does this help you learn more about the candidate, it demonstrates your interest.

 Don’t forget to sell your company

You’re not the only one making a hiring decision.

Candidates are sizing your company up too, and the best candidates are selective.

Use the interview process as an opportunity to promote your company. Describe why people like working there and invite them to look you up online. Ensure your online reputation is positive by asking happy employees to contribute reviews to employer rating sites like Glassdoor and Indeed.
