Using ERC to Hire for a New Position

Using ERC to Hire for a New Position

Hiring a new employee can be challenging and time-consuming. ERC members have access to resources at every step to make the process efficient and effective:

  1. Writing the Job Description
  2. Determining the Right Compensation
  3. Posting the Job
  4. The Hiring Process
  5. The On-Boarding Process


Writing the Job Description

When creating a job description for a new job, using secondary sources of job information can help you better understand a position and the typical duties a person would perform in that role. ERC members have free access to Bloomberg BNA’s Custom Job Description tool, which allows you to search a huge database of job titles and customize a description that fits your job.

ERC members can research job descriptions through ERC’s HR Help Desk.


Determining the Right Compensation

Creating a new job comes with the task of determining the right compensation for that position. ERC has several tools to help pinpoint compensation for new positions:

  • ERC Compensation Data – ERC publishes wage and salary information each year that is available for free to new and participating ERC members. Members that did not participate receive a huge discount on the data.
  • HR Help Desk – Sometimes a position is highly specialized and data may not exist for it yet. ERC’s HR Help Desk can research the position and help you determine a pay range.
  • Resource Center – ERC’s on-site Resource Center gives members access to ERI’s Salary Assessor, an easy-to-use software program that reports up to the present day competitive wage, salary, and incentive survey data.


Posting the Job

ERC members have access to multiple Staffing and Recruiting discounts through ERC membership.

  • HR Help Desk – ERC members have unlimited access to certified HR professionals for any questions related to compliance issues, forms that need to be completed, and other tricky hiring issues.
  • Model Forms – Quickly download and print Model Job Applications, Recruiting Forms, Personnel Files and more from Bloomberg BNA’s HR Essentials.



The On-Boarding Process
