How to hire the right employee

Hiring a new employee to join the business is an important task that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Employers should scout out talent in the same way that a good sales person hunts for new clients.

Here are a few ideas to help employers land the right employee:

Screen for organisational fit

Successful companies believe that having a candidate fit into the organisational culture is more important than the candidate’s skills. This is because employers can teach job skills; however, they cannot teach character.

Screen for the right job skills

It is also important to screen candidates to determine if they have the necessary job skills. Companies should avoid screening candidates on outdated or generic job descriptions as candidates will be prepared for the standard interview questions, such as their strengths and weaknesses.

The best predictor of success is a candidate’s past behaviour and results, not their interview expertise. Ask about the candidate’s successes at past jobs and what they achieved after six months, one year and three years.

Verify credentials

A key step in hiring a new employee is to verify their credentials and ensure that they have achieved what they are claiming.

It is important to spend the time and money performing background checks and assessments as it will only cost more in the long term if the candidate is not the right fit.
