RT @TalentCulture: #Hiring: 6 Secrets to Attracting Top #Talent http://t.co/0944TKRO7j @Sales_Source #TChat
A lack of investing time into defining the results, outcomes, deliverables, performance, and expectations, and success leads to hiring mistakes and errors.
In our Success Factor Methodology Hiring Process, we consider this error to be the greatest one leading to hiring failure.
As the author indicates:
"a. What specifically needs to get done by when? You're not filling a slot; you're moving your business agenda forward.
b. How will success be quantitatively measured? If you don't have reasonable metrics, you won't know whether you have a top performer."
It's like the old advertising tagline for Fram Oil Filters: You can pay me now or pay me later!
Wouldn't a better approach be to invest the time and energy up front to define your needs vs. trying to manage tough on the back-end. The reality is: Can you ever manage tough enough.
Save yourself the heartache and learn how to define expectations and results - let that guide your finding and sourcing, interviewing, on-boarding, and performance management.
