A new year and a new opportunity to build your team!

If you are getting ready to start looking for new people to join your team, you must know some golden rules or steps you shouldn’t skip in any of your processes when building a productive team.

Let’s get straight to it:

1. Hiring in desperation mode

Hiring is an investment that you should take seriously. It has the power to determine if your business can succeed or not, especially if you have a small team.

Sometimes it can be hard to make calls and interviews, but remember that you are in “building mode” you are building a team! and the time and attention you invest in the hiring stage can be highly rewarding for you and your business.

Investing your attention in key points will save you from hiring the wrong candidate because you are desperate or because you rushed or skipped parts of the process.

2. Ruling out candidates because of their age, studies, or knowledge

You should remember, there are hidden gems!

Check how productive your candidates are instead of getting lost in resumes. Ask for their achievements and past production.

That is the key.

You don’t want to miss out on a good performer because their resume looks a bit boring!

3. Follow-ups

Yes, hiring can be a tiring activity sometimes, especially if you don’t have a big team or you are new to recruitment.

Investing enough time in generating communication lines will make your and your candidates’ journey smoother and more efficient. You will be surprised how quickly a call can change your perception of someone when asking the right questions.

4. Interviews

Be prepared for your job interviews and be interested!

We know from experience that feeling insecure about doing interviews normally comes from a lack of knowledge! That’s why training and getting knowledge should be a priority for you if you want to improve your people skills.
