Successful Hiring Isn't Just About Skills: It's About Attitude

Successful Hiring Isn't Just About Skills: It's About Attitude | Hire Top Talent | Scoop.it
If an employee has great talent but doesn't fit into your business culture, constantly questions policy and their company role or you find a need to be concerned every time the employee talks to one of your best customers, then ...


The book author calls his issue "employee attitude". I look at these same things as basic values, character, and core traits. These are not the most important elements of hiring - but one of the key areas. For example, the ability to deliver the expected outcomes is also critical along with organizational and team cultural fit.


So many "authors" try to claim their one idea or approach is the "solution" to hiring problems. The key is really implementing a series of hiring best practices that cover performance, behavior, and fit. - Barry Deutsch

The Four Worst Hiring Mistakes

The Four Worst Hiring Mistakes | Hire Top Talent | Scoop.it
The problem might be you.(The four worst hiring mistakes http://t.co/oY5QNORI #SmallBiz...)...


I find it interesting all these articles on the 2 worst, 5 bad, 7 terrible. What strikes me as odd is that many of these lists are nothing more than subjective perceptions. There is no research, quantification, actual study that identifies which are the right mistakes.


In fact, the vast majority of information consumed through blogs is nothing more than conjecture, assumptions, and biased opinions. Occassionally you come across a great blog author who does their research and bases their comments on fundamental information collected in a quantitative or scientific approach - Barry

When bringing new people on, think about the big picture. How they will fit in? How will they enhance retention?


All too often we base our assumption on whether people will "fit" on how they acted during the interview. Do you believe that the "persona" exhibited in the interview is what you'll get when they come aboard? If that's not real fit-style-personality, then how do we get at it? - Barry

Hope? When hiring, it can be a bad thing

This might be the biggest rookie hiring mistake ever — it definitely is something we all can relate to – and I don't know of one leader that at some point in their career hasn't done this! Here's the problem with this mistake: ...


Hope is not an effective strategy. The vast majority of managers and executives hang onto to staff far beyond the point of rational thinking. You then rationalize all the excuses and explanations for not taking action sooner.

Given today's talent marketplace, many companies are being far too selective in the candidates they are seeking. I am not suggesting that companies should not strive to hire top talent – quite the contrary.

Trainers have applied those words to all sorts of training exercises, generally in business. Why are they universally understood? The quote applies to all areas of our lives. It especially applies to ....


My observation is that most companies don't have a recruiting plan. Recruiting in most organizations falls into one of two camps:


Camp #1: Let's run ads and sit back passively waiting for the right candidate to fall into our lap. This is a strategy based on luck and hope.


Camp #2: Let's throw some "s___" against the wall and hope - perhaps pray - something works. When it doesn't work, let's rinse and repeat because we don't know what else to do. Another great effective strategy for recruiting.


Is it any wonder why most companies struggle to hire - without a solid best practice-based recruiting strategy your doomed to bring average, mediocre, minimally qualified candidates to the table every time. - Barry

Everyone laments a talent shortage, yet there are millions of people unemployed. There appears to be something fundamentally wrong. Is the assumption that unemployed candidates are deadbeats? If that's not the case, then how can these two scenarios exist at the same time? Perhaps, it's more a function of poor recruiting and hiring practices by companies vs. there being a perceived "talent shortage?" - Barry
