As one of your most significant investments, it’s absolutely crucial that you hire the best employees. You team should consist of talented employees that perform at a high level, fit into your company culture, and STAY. But, let’s be real. Finding the perfect candidate, let alone the employee selection process, is exhausting!
We recently asked Andrea Hoffer from Aha! Recruiting Experts to join us and share her expert insights about the easiest way to build your dream team. Investing time now can make the difference in hiring an A-team player or just another body that will revolves out the door. Keys to hiring success from Andrea include:
- Get clarity on the right person for your opening; their characteristics and traits to be successful
- Recruit those candidates where they hang out on social media and start your posting with 3-4 engaging questions that will resonate with your ideal candidate
- Share how you are offering more than a job; a chance to be part of a bigger mission in the community during the interview process
We asked Andrea the biggest mistake made in hiring and her reply was not making hiring a priority! The planning work is not done so a body versus the right candidate is hired to fill the role. She also confirmed that to keep top candidates your onboarding process must be really good.
Our time with Andrea flew by so be sure to watch our video if you want to improve your hiring process. We are also excited that Andrea is our Business Breakthrough keynote speaker. She’ll be helping our attendees get the planning work done for hiring during three educational and workshop sessions. We would love for you to join us in Jacksonville in April to meet Andrea and go home with plans to improve your hiring system.
