With many things in life, you can always learn from other people’s mistakes. This is certainly true when it comes to recruitment.
In my book Get Out of Your Way, I explain that the very first step to recruiting the right person is to define WHO and WHAT you need in your team.
This may seem obvious, but I have seen a failure to do just that have a negative impact on many of the businesses I’ve worked with over the years.
By having a structured recruitment process, you can make sure that all that time, effort and cost is worth it. In other words, you recruit somebody who has the right skills and experience to do the job AND fits in with your company culture.
