The interview and hiring process can be time consuming and expensive. Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that your business will recruit the best employees available.
Many businesses fail before five years of operating and one of the main reasons for this is a lack of competence among employees. This makes hiring the best employees possible that much more important to ensure that you find a candidate that is the right fit for your business.
With that being said, here are some indications that a candidate is the right fit for your business:
Good Intelligence - a perfect candidate should have excellent cognitive and emotional intelligence. Both are important predictors of high performance in the workplace. Employees must be sharp intellectually and able to connect with others. They should adapt to the latest technologies or use highly effective marketing methods.
Active Listening Skills - find out during the recruitment and interview process whether the candidate catches on quickly and follows the tasks efficiently. A potential career candidate should have a quick response to things that happen around them and adapt accordingly. Active listening skills are needed in management, customer service and sales roles.
Ambition and Honesty - your business will benefit from ambitious employees, but it should be balanced with integrity and honesty. This will ensure that your employee will follow rules and maintain a good relationship with others while being very eager to achieve ambitious goals.
Execution -Oriented - some people just talk a lot, but they have mediocre execution skills. Find out whether candidates are execution-oriented and if they are determined to see projects through to completion. During the interview process, you should be able to determine whether or not they want to get the job done and they know how to do it.
Networkers - networkers are more than just good communicators. They know how to strategically establish relationships with professionals and clients who are relevant to business operations. They should know how to delegate tasks to business partners, co-workers or suppliers. At the end of the day, all of your employees should be part of a big circle of professionals who mutually benefit one another.
