The big task of running a company is hiring people. Employees will take ahead the vision and mission of a company besides taking forward the personality and culture. So, when people hold such pivotal importance, how do you choose them?
Here are few tips regarding selecting people who will deliver both in good times and hard times.
The first question you should ask yourself before hiring a person is- does he/she really care? Do they have that integrity and passion towards the company or a product or service? If the answer is YES for these questions, then you have got the right candidate. People who care and have compassion will surely take your company to new heights. Don’t always go away with degrees and technical skills. These will develop over time but building a sense of responsibility will take years. If you feel the person is passionate but technically less skilled just go with the candidate.
Life is never as predicted and is always uncertain so, nothing can be as written. In fact, expecting things to go as planned is the biggest mistake we can make. Any person can be composed, productive and quiet when everything goes accordingly but, such people are of no use when risky situations and unwanted results befall. And it is where we need employees who can go that extra mile and take risks to clear the problem and pass through the hurdle. Check and try to guess if a person can take risks and adapt quickly to new situations.
The age is the modern age and, the competition is cutthroat so, hiring people who wait for orders to flow from the top echelons may be of some use but not of total use. A company with more self-starters and out-of-the-box thinkers has more chances to propel than the one with people who wait for orders to flow. You must search for people who can take decisions independently when needed rather than waiting for directions or letting things escalate to such a point where the result is negative.
A person who lives by values in life also sticks to them at the office. It is as simple as that. An accountable person understands the importance of work, (s)he respects the outcome, and above all, he/she knows the value of colleagues. Such people will never go back to acknowledge mistakes and rectify them. So, what more does a company want from employees. There’s always a smooth sail when an organization has accountable people.
There’s no other boon to a company when it has people who wait to grow and are willing to learn. Curious about new things, enthusiasm to achieve, and availability to take challenges will ease the burden. People who take pride in learning will not only deliver quickly but will also cut down management costs.
So, the next time you are hiring, keep these in mind and search for such people.
