How Hiring With Intention Can Shape Your Organization for Success
I received the above email from a client the other day, asking about how I go about hiring for my company ApplicantPro. I certainly would like to think I've assembled a fantastic team, but it's always nice to see that others notice as well.
This wasn't the first time I've been approached about my unique approach to hiring at my company. The fact that I maintain a staff of 80% women in the tech space alone, seems to catch people's attention.
Keep in mind, I started in the same place as all tech startups, with very limited resources, and very few perks. While I do credit some of my early success to being insanely lucky with my first few hires, I also believe that the momentum continued by hiring the right kind of people.
Tips for how to hire with intention:
- Begin hiring with intent early – don't just look for a butt to fill the seat.
- Use pre hiring assessments to find the right fit for your organization.
- Focus in on the things that will matter in the future – not just the cognitive skills for the position.
Remember, a good employee goes much further than what is on their resume. In order for your company to grow and be successful, you need the right team in place to help you get there.
