Have you ever said, "I just can't seem to find good help"? Bet you have.
In the current business climate, 100% of the business owners that I talk to say they need to hire employees. And 100% of my clients are looking for great team members.
Here's 3 mistakes that I see business owners and entrepreneurs make when it comes to hiring great team members.
Mistake #1- Hiring too quickly. You need people now, so you run out and hire people with a pulse. I get it. But you'll likely rue the day that you hired them. My friend George needed a truck driver now. HIs gut felt good so he hired the first guy along. And 3 months later he had to let him go. The driver wasn't a good fit with the other team members. George failed to take into account the culture. Slow down.
Mistake #2- Not having a process. George had a process, but he didn't follow the process. Develop a multi-step process and follow it. It will help you to slow down.
Mistake #3-Not knowing who you want. How can you hire for a position until you worked out what kind of person will be successful in that job? Slow down and figure out who your ideal candidate is before you hire them.
