Welcome to my first Business Rescue Roadmap solocast.
In this solocast, I’m going to be talking about something that is crucial to the success of your business. You need to surround yourself with people who work hard to achieve your company’s goals.
When you hire new employees you need to make sure the individuals that you’re bringing on have the necessary skills and the experience to excel in their role and bring value to your company.
In this episode, I’m going to discuss with you the key areas to focus on during the hiring process to ensure that your company attracts and hires quality candidates that will stick around long-term and provide value.
Some highlights include:
Can you ensure that the position will be long-term? You shouldn’t hire an employee if you’re going to have to let them go right away. (minute 1:00)
Ask for more than a resume and a cover letter. This is a good strategy for making sure people have actually read your job description. You don’t want to sift through generic resumes. (minute 3:00)
Set up systems to speed up the hiring process next time. (minute 5:00)
Schedule interviews for the same position as close together as possible. This way you are easily able to compare and contrast the candidates. (minute 7:00)
Consider the needs of your candidates. Give your candidates a timeline so they know when to expect to hear from you. (minute 12:00)
Trust your instinct. When your gut tells you not to hire someone, don’t hire that person. (minute 14:00)
Hire slow, and fire fast. You need to make sure you hire with a long-term strategy in mind. (minute 16:00)
