Practical Help To Hire Better, Quicker, Less Expensively


Today's economic landscape adds to the stress business owners and executives are facing. Do you feel pressured to reduce waste while continuing to run at peak efficiency? This objective often leads to eliminating positions that don't add sufficient value to the organization, and either eliminating or redeploying people in those roles. Organizations fortunate enough to be growing face pressure to hire better, quicker and less expensively.


Top 10 Selection Best Practices



1. Know how each job supports your organization's key objectives.

Consider both internal and external candidates for open positions.

Use objective evaluation criteria based on known outstanding  performers in that job.

4. Ensure that compensation is competitive based on current market rates for the job.

5. Apply a consistent selection process to all candidates.

6. Include key stakeholders in your employee selection process.

7. Train your interviewers in your employee selection process.

8. Give your interviewers guidance to help them probe deeper into a candidate's suitability.

9. Conduct comprehensive reference and background checks on job candidates.

10. Ensure that your orientation process helps redeployed people become productive faster.


When it comes to selection, hiring and re-organizations, the stakes are high and there is little room for error. Having a clear vision of the future, properly designed jobs, and a good selection process supported by good information on each candidate reduces false starts and mistakes.
