How to Hire Great People

Good hiring decisions are critical to the success of your organization. Results Driven Managers have an extremely high success rate in hiring because they know how to effectively interview and select the right person for the right job.

Your business is only as good as your employees. From the front desk to the executive offices, every employee represents a facet of your business to clients and the community. Hiring the wrong person can cost you more than just money.

Managing the people in your company takes time, but dealing with a “poor performance” employee can take up to 70 percent more time than one with “good performance”.

When you hire the right people, you can focus on the big picture - running your business - rather than worrying about smaller details.

 

Hiring takes time, effort, and money, but did you know hiring the right people can save you money?

 

Uninformed managers take a “go with your gut” mindset when choosing a candidate, but a wrong hire can find you scurrying to replace someone you hired on a “hunch.” This equals spending additional money.

A new hire can cost over $4000, even before wages and salary, including advertising on various job sites and management time for interviewing, among other hiring expenses.

When it comes to wasted payroll and lost sales, you could be losing upwards of 25 percent of the annual salary for the role you’re attempting to fill. Hiring the most qualified candidates means new employees can hit the ground running and begin making valuable contributions to the company immediately.

Finally, a bad hire can lower organizational morale. Hires who are not a good fit with other personalities in the organization lead to tension and strain within a team. That tension ultimately affects existing employees' attitudes toward their jobs. They can also consume enormous management time dealing with the issues they create, including their poor performance and other co-workers or the company itself.

In this Course, You will Learn from an executive who has hired and overseen the successful hiring of literally thousands of employees. You will learn the exact method he and his teams have used. It leaves you perfectly placed to take advantage of new business opportunities, be competitive and grow faster.

 

Hiring Great People Delivers Better Performance

Effective hiring will support your company in achieving faster levels of growth. Streamlined, efficient recruitment processes deliver higher-quality, more engaged hires, providing a competitive advantage that directly impacts your business performance.

Research by Hay Group suggests that firms with a high engagement score have revenue levels on average 4.5 times higher than those with the lowest, and numerous studies have correlated high employee engagement with improved customer satisfaction. Engagement starts with hiring the best fit for your role, and this course will show you exactly how to do that.

The right hire should be able to jump right in and contribute to the natural cohesion of your best teams. A bad hire, on the other hand, can sow discord and cause tension where it may not have even existed before. Look for each new hire’s potential for being a team player before you bring them on permanently. 

Avoid Training an Employee Who’s Not Staying

Hiring costs can drain the budget. Add in the time and money expenses of training a new hire, and you have quite the investment made for each additional employee. If that hire doesn’t work out, you’ve lost hours and hours of one-on-one time with your training teams and management, who probably have better things to do. Learn to choose someone who will stick around.
