So, you’ve started your own business and quite possibly it was your dream all along. Now all you all want is a never-ending streak of success, RIGHT?
Well, as much as we would want you to have all of that, it isn’t easy. All start-ups begin with an IDEA which is only successful when executed in the right way, at the right time and by the right PEOPLE.
How to Hire the Right People?
Hiring is a highly complex process. Not only, you need people with the right skills but also people with the right attitude. At times it can even take months hiring people that can meet your criteria.
Hiring is a time-consuming process, and therefore, a smart decision would to consult the best recruitment agencies and outsource this task. This will not only save you valuable time but will also allow you to focus on other important business tasks.
This is called SMART BUSINESS PLANNING
However, you want to take the matter into your own hands. Here are some tips that can help you hire the right employees for your aspiring business start-up.
Tip #1: Telephonic Interview
If you are looking for people that can lead your business to success, you might want to get rid of some of the deal-breakers.
When you conduct a telephonic interview, you can ask some key questions to make up your mind about a candidate. Ask questions about professional experiences, skills, culture, expected salary etc.
Tip #2: Take your time, don’t panic hire
Most panic decisions are bad and never a good idea. This happens so many times in almost every organization which eventually leads to employees getting fired within 30 days of their recruitment.
There is only one possible explanation for that, the candidate was a panic hire and didn’t meet the criteria in the first place.
Tip #3: Listen to their questions as well
This is one of the most effective ways of judging a candidate. When you listen to the questions, and concerns of a candidate, you realize how they think and prioritize things.
If they are passionate about the job and are willing to grow, they would definitely have good questions. However, if the candidate is not serious or not good enough, their questions will more likely be generic, which is not a good thing.
Tip #4: Make sure they fit the culture of the company
This is important, you can let anyone be a part of your new start-up. You need people that have the same values with minor differences here and there, of course.
If it’s possible, let them meet the team members and let them interact. Observe how the candidate interacts with them and see their reactions.
These are some of the tips we believe can help you HIRE THE RIGHT candidate for your startup. Wish you all the success and glory in your future endeavours.
