Hiring people is not so easy
Most places hire people using a traditional advert, use gut feel in interviews and sadly 50% turn out to be a bad hire or wrong fit. We try to do it ourselves to save money yet a wrong hire is expensive, time consuming and gut wrenching. Then we might turn to a recruitment firm reducing your bad luck to 30-40%.
When good people turn bad
You have the employee who started out good but then something happened. Performance slips or it is patchy. Or worse they start white-anting the team or the business. If you drill down we often find they did not have clarity, did not feel like they were part of a team, or simply didn’t fit. Traditional HR and management let you all down.
It’s all in how you hire
Hiring people is as much about marketing your business as it is about finding A Players. It’s an experience for those you hire and reject. Delivering a result where you get a right hire 90% or more takes some thinking, finesse and a robust process. And, a bit more time! An extra hour or two upfront will save you hundreds of hours later.
A Players want to be part of a team of A Players
When a recruitment is done well it is a good experience for all who are involved. A right fit is what an A Player is looking for where they resonate with who you are, your purpose, values and vision. They want to be part of a team of A Players. Then there is a whole method to keeping them engaged and on fire.
