Another type of visitor that you may frequently have in your corporate environment or job site is potential employees. When you bring individuals in to interview them, that would typically take place in the place of employment so you can speak to the way the office functions.
From a visitor management perspective, do you know how to handle visitors coming in to interview for a position?
- Assign someone to escort them – particularly if an individual is coming in to speak with more than one person n the organization, it is important to have some escort them. Depending on the way you function in your business, this could be the receptionist if there is one and he/she is able to leave their post. Having the escort available just ensures that the visitors don’t get lost, or end up in harm’s way.
- Have visitors announced upon arrival – if you have a front desk that is manned, ensure that visitors sign in there and receive the appropriate visitor passes before they are taken to (or picked up by) the interviewer.
- Familiarize them with the process ahead of time – people coming in for interviews are highly focused on making a good impression. In order to reduce the number of things they need to worry about, tell them in advance what to expect. This means outlining the visitation process as well, so that does not become a source of stress.
