John Maxwell says that he gets asked all the time, “How do you motivate your people” and his answer is very simple “Hire motivated people.” You want to attract and hire the best talent in order to continue your development and growth as a company. You can have great processes and great products but the execution of your business plan is dependent on the people in your organization.
Everything started with a thought. The computer that I am using to broadcast this radio show. The device that you are using to listen to this show. All started with a thought. That last time I checked people, not processes or systems are the medium for thoughts.
The people that you hire are going to be responsible for coming up with or executing the next great thought that comes through your organization. People are the important ingredient to your next stage of growth in your business. The performance of your people directly affects your business and your bottom line.
Show Objectives - The Why
Hiring the best talent is not an event. Hiring the best talent is a process. Regardless of your industry there are some steps that you can talk to help you with the process of hiring the best talent. The people in your organization are your greatest investment. Today’s show talks about steps that you can talk to help you hire the best talent.
Key Tips for looking outside of the box and building your brand for recruitment
What You Need to Know - The What
What You Need to Do - The How
The actual Interview- define the interviewers roles based on already preselected questions and needs……you can ask other questions, but you should have some preselected core questions you ask every candidate.
Remember from the moment the candidate walks into the room you are responsible for and to them just as you are one of your staff members, hence remember your HR requirements, i.e. discrimination etc.
Divide the Interview into three parts
1-Welcome and introduction
2- Ask the candidate to review the last 10 years of their work history with you. You will ask questions as they go and after they finish. When they have finished if you have not already completed your preselected questions then review those.
3- General wrap up, give the candidate a chance to ask any questions that they need to. Plus ask any relevant final questions yourself, such as if you were successful how long before you can start, what is your salary expectation and do you have and leave plans, or medical conditions that would stop you from performing parts or all of the role. At this point it is critical to give the candidate next steps, both for them and your brand. Don’t forget to follow up!
And before you finalise- do proper reference checks!!!!!!
Good recruitment does not stop at the point of the job offer, it goes further, the next critical step is good on boarding;
