HIRING & ESZEER
The success of your company has a lot to do
with hiring great talent who will regularly go
above and beyond the call of duty—because
they believe in your company's mission as much
as you do.
But the job landscape has
changed rapidly in the
Internet age: it's more
common for millennials to job
hop every year than stick with
a company for life, as was
common in our parent's
So how do you hire for top
talent that will stick around
and help take your business
to the next level?
Prior to the interviewing round, make
sure you have a clear understanding
on not only the role you hope to fill,
but how exactly you want this person
to help you move your business
Clear metrics are essential to
establish, not only because it helps
your new hire reach performance
goals, but it helps you measure
progress over time.
Emotional intelligence is the
difference between a decent
employee and a great one. So
while you're interviewing for
hires, those who make good eye
contact, seem comfortable and
confident in themselves, and
elaborate on how they've solved
complex problems in past roles
are signaling a high emotional IO.
Millennials routinely site work culture as one of
their driving factors when deciding which job
offer to take. Be open and honest about the
work culture at your company, meaning the
values you strive to uphold, and what it's like
to work there.
Culture doesn't come down to ping pong
tables or good snacks in the office though.
Millennials are interested in opportunities for
career growth through mentorship
opportunities. They want to care about the
cause they are working for, so be sure to share
your cause and measure a candidate's
enthusiasm about aligning with that vision.
Smart candidates will likely be interviewing you as much as you are interviewing them.
You want to hire talent who ask questions about your company vision, culture, and the
requirements of the role. This shows that candidate is fully engaged and likely has a
higher emotional intelligence than someone who sits back and doesn't ask questions.

You want to hire the best person for the job, and part of
that decision comes down to how well they will integrate
with your existing team.
Not only do you want to minimize personality conflicts on
your team, but you also want to hire those who value a
collaborative team approach. This spirit of camaraderie
goes a long way in propelling your company to new levels
