3 Key Strategies for Hiring Well, Not Managing Hard

  1. 1. 3 Key Strategies for Hiring Well, Not Managing Hard
  2. 2. Too many companies fail to make impactful hires, and this costs them down the road. While hiring looks like an “art,” in fact there is a lot of science and technique behind successfully bringing new employees on board.
  3. 3. Key 1: Employ for Tomorrow - Not Today. An organization must first know where it wants to be in three to five years before it can expect its managers to hire individuals who can get it there. A common mistake is to hire for the needs of Today, only to find out that the individual is not the right long-term person for tomorrow.
  4. 4. Key 2: Qualify on Technical Capabilities And Use Performance-Oriented Questions Qualify on capability factors such as education and technical elements of the job. Avoid only hiring those that performed the same job in the past. Identify the handful of objectives the individual needs to accomplish for the organization to consider him/her a great hire.
  5. 5. Key 3: Hire on cultural fit. Identify the key traits necessary for the individual to be successful in the role and consider each candidate against those traits. An example might be “assertiveness” or “team building.”
  6. 6. In the end there are only two choices -- hire well or manage hard. Effective hiring requires more than these initial steps, but if these are applied, you will see a significant improvement in the quality and cultural fit of your new hires. Read other resource articles at www.cbiz.com
