Attracting, retaining and motivating your people are key business initiatives. You need to continually focus on this as your organization evolves. Often, we have a systematized approach to the interview process, or even recruiting. Have you thought through the benefits of creating a systematized approach to the hiring process itself?
It’s probably not a priority, that is, until you find yourself with a burning turnover or retention issue.
It’s hard to find good people!
Many managers lament the difficulty in finding good people. The truth is that “good people” are out there, but you probably don’t have a formula for successful hiring.
How are you doing? Answer true or false the following questions to evaluate your situation.
- I’m satisfied with the level of turnover in my company.
- It’s easy for us to recruit and hire for our key positions.
- Our firm easily attracts top performers.
- Our people really like working for our company.
- We value our people and show our appreciation on a regular basis.
- We regularly raise the bar on hiring so that we stay competitive.
- We provide opportunities for our people to advance within our firm.
- We make available professional development opportunities for our people to stay ahead.
- We have non-cash ways of recognizing our people that they appreciate.
- We want our people to feel that working for us makes their value higher.
If you answered false to more than two of these statements, you may want to rethink how you attract, retain and motivate your people. Determine whether this is a company-wide challenge, or if it is specific to certain areas in your company.
