6 Stepping Stones to Recruiting the Right People into your Business

No public course scheduled at present.  Please contact us for an in-house option.

Recruitment speaks directly to the strategic drivers of the business and as such has a direct effect on profit – get it right and we make money, get it wrong and we lose! Yet the task of recruiting the right person for the job is seldom given the attention that it requires.

I spend my life teaching managers how to manage better, helping sales people to sell better, showing frontline people how to give better customer service and so the list goes on.  I love doing it too.  However, when I get called in to “fix problems” caused by unproductive and unsuitable people, training them doesn’t cut it!

Recruiting the wrong person is a bit like putting the wrong fuel into a motor vehicle.   By the time you have rid the engine of the unwanted fuel and replaced it with the right fuel, you may have broken the bank and incurred irreparable damage.  These costs and damage are never budgeted for and therefore are unforeseen. On top of that, the cost of this mistake is financed directly from your profit!

By recruiting the right person in the first place we give managers the opportunity to do what they are supposed to do, and not cover for incompetent or lazy people.  In other words, the majority of the management problems that we experience on a daily basis never occur and people management becomes so much easier.

Although you cannot have a 100% success rate in the recruiting of employees, you can ensure that you stack the odds in your favour by following these 6 steps:

  1. Clearly define the type of person you need for the job: This is the foundation of the process.  Look at your “job description” and see how closely it matches (or doesn’t) what you actually do!
  2. The brief to the employment agency or recruiter has to be spot on: The recruiter is an extension of your company. They need a clear understanding and strong controls
  3. Criteria for short-listing: Once you have received the best candidates from the agency or recruiter, you have to know how to sift out the excellent from the best and stay on track.
  4. How to structure an interview so that you stay within the Law and still get the information that you require: This is a very tight line to walk, but with patience, knowledge and skill you will succeed.  You have to take time to prepare for the interview.
  5. How to question (legally) and listen effectively, so that you get behind the candidate’s mask: This is the nitty gritty part of the process which can be very rewarding if applied mindfully.  All candidates wear masks and have hidden agendas.
  6. How to make the right decision as to whom to employ: Once you have gone through the first 5 steps, you have to “close the deal”.  This 6th step is crucial and often where it all falls down as a result of second-guessing and personal likes and dislikes, especially where you are not the sole decision maker.
