Today we will talk about hiring the best fit for your team. Now we often hear from business owners that there's a real skills shortage out there, and while that might be true, we need to make sure that we get the best fit for our business. So today I'm going to share with you three practical tips to get the best fit in your business.
Number one, scope the role. So be really clear on who you are looking for, what skills and attributes to have and create a picture of the ideal candidate that you are looking to attract. Just remember the clearer you are on who you are looking for, the more likely you are to find the right fit.
Number two, recruit to core values. Our core values are the guiding principles in our business. It is an absolute deal breaker if our team don’t align. So one of the things that we can do as we're looking to recruit into our team, is a very quick activity. Get people to send in a 2-minute video demonstrating how they're aligned to the core values. This can be done quite easily and it does actually help in the selection process.
Number three, follow a step-by-step approach. Now if you haven't got a step-by-step approach to how your recruit into your business, please create one and follow this rigidly. There are no shortcuts when it comes to recruitment because it certainly can end up costing you in the long run.
So my top three practical tips for getting the best fit in your business. Number one, scope the role and be really clear on who you were looking for. Number two, recruit to the core values to make sure we get people that align with who we are and what we do.
