How to Know Your Employees Are the Right People

The challenge with applying traditional interviews when taking on new people is that they do not give guidance as to the desire for the position or how hard a person will work. You cannot rely on just CVs.

Put simply you want to know that the person you are hiring wants the job you are offering and has the work ethic to do what is required. They may not understand what the job entails but that can be trained into the right person.

When a business is building it needs to ensure that every member of the team is bringing something of value and strengths that are complimentary to you and the rest of your team. Character and disposition are not discovered in career resumes or in constricting application forms. Questions on competency and experience will not ascertain whether someone shares your vision.

References, and particularly whom people know with their Network, are important, of course. But checking out references will not ensure loyalty, compatibility or optimism. The only science in selecting people should be chemistry. This is true of any relationship but in an entrepreneurial small business it is important that everyone is willingly working, risking, creating, implementing, driving and following through together.

You have to like the people you are going to work with. People may be better for getting to know, but not always. Entrepreneurial leaders should recruit people that have a chemistry that matches their own.
