Finally…..Meet Your Prospective Employee More Than Once

Meeting your prospective employee more than once is a good idea to get to know them better, to see what their career aspirations are, what they can bring to your business and your existing team.

Do they have the same values and ethics as yourself and your team?

Are they a right fit for you?

Are you a right fit for them?

Are they just all about the money?

Will they fit into your company culture? This is extremely important. They may have the correct skills but not the correct attitude!

Sometimes we may need to look past the skills and look at the potential.

Companies are missing out on great people due to candidates not being evaluated for their high potential and the motivation to succeed.

These candidates are the ones that will go the extra mile. They just need to be given the opportunity to do so which many companies may see as a risk, however, it may be a risk worth investing in.

 

Remember, consistency in promoting your employer brand, staying engaged with potential candidates, and continuously assessing and improving your recruitment strategies will contribute to attracting and retaining the right talent for your company.
