10 vital steps to hiring a great team

HiringHiringHiring the right employee, however, pays you back in employee productivity, a successful employment relationship, and a positive impact on your total work environment and – ultimately – your profits. Here are our ten vital steps to hiring a great team:

1. Understand your needs

The first step is the most important step towards a successful outcome. You and your team need to develop a clear understanding of your company’s culture, structure, policies, vision, and how this specific position fits within this.

2. Prepare your job posting

Prepare a job posting that defines the duties, requirements and responsibilities of the position you wish to fill. Make sure that this is understood and accepted by the rest of the team that will be working with the new employee.

3. Collaborate with your team on your interview process

What are the key questions you need answered prior to hiring for this role? Ensure you’re all on the same page with hiring objectives before bringing anyone in for an interview.

4. Screen candidates thoroughly

Depending on the role, you’ll need to employ various screening tactics to ensure they’re right for the vacancy. Bring a professional employment screening firm on board to make sure this process runs smoothly and effectively.

5. In-depth Qualifying Process

Following this, you’ll need to conduct in-depth interviews with the candidates who pass the employment and background screening process. This may include in-depth phone call screening and face-to-face behavioral based interviews.

6. Don’t waste your time

Don’t rush your decision simply to fill a vacancy. Even if it takes a long time to find the right person, this will benefit you in the long run.

7. Focus on personal trajectories as well as professional

Don’t forget to ensure all employees and potential employees understand that you care about them personally, as well as professionally. Take the time to understand their goals and needs, and how you as an employer can help them succeed.

8. Respect everyone’s opinion

When hiring, everyone’s opinion is relevant and valuable. Keep an open mind.

9. Request feedback from all quarters

Like #8, an open mind in opinions will lead to the desire of feedback from all involved – from management to your current team to the potential employee.

10. Enjoy the process

You’re building your team and, if things work out, driving increased success for your business – enjoy it!  ]]>
