How To Hire Someone


Hiring the right person for the right job can be tricky business.  Most of all, if you hire the wrong person, you will see your hard earned dollars flying out the door when the employee leaves.  So what can you do to hire the right person the first time?  Read on....

If given the choice, would you rather have a root canal or hire a new employee? Believe it or not, most managers and business owners would choose the root canal! Why? Because they are not prepared to hire someone, lack the resources to do so, do not have time, or better yet, have a poor track record for finding the right person for the right job. Quite frankly, some small business owners rely on friends and family to fill their job needs, and have never HAD to hire anyone.

As a leader, what do you need to do to hire more effectively? Where does your organization need help? What is your organization lacking? Do you hire the best, or do you settle for second best? Are you losing your best employees to larger, cooler organizations? What about the hiring process is keeping you up at night? Do you “panic” hire?

Did you know that most hiring decisions are made in the first four minutes of an interview? It’s true! And then the remaining interview is typically spent justifying this decision. It takes longer than four minutes to order and receive your double tall skinny café mocha at your local coffee shop. One decision impacts your waist line, the other impacts your organization’s bottom line!

There is an “art” to hiring the right employee, and it requires more than four minutes of your time. Are you ready to invest more time in finding the right person for your organization? Then take the first step by learning from experts in the field.

Remember, you are looking for the right person that will fit into your organization and fill a job with specific requirements. You are making a long term decision. Spend the time to do it right the first time.
