How to Hire People That Will Help Your Company Grow / How to Hire the Right People
Hiring is a dilemma that every business, especially small businesses face. With employee turnover rates as high as ever, it is important to hire the proper people. Today I am going to be discussing how to hire people that will help your company grow.
The most important trick to this is being honest with yourself. What do you struggle with most? If you do not understand marketing as much as you should, you should be looking for marketing people, if you are not good at responding to phone calls, you should hire a receptionist. This answer may seem obvious but “How to hire the right people” is a far more complicated question.
Employee turnover rates seem to have increased drastically with each generation. The #1 and #2 reasons for employee turnover are management and dissatisfaction with the job at hand. Assuming you are a great manager, we have to discuss reason #2. Make your interview around the job position. It is important to create an interview that will not only tell you about the person’s experience and sensibility, but will help you understand the type of person that they are.
Ask questions that will help you know whether the new hire is somebody who is detail oriented and prefers routine or somebody who likes to think big picture and constantly wants something new to work on. Hire that person accordingly.
Sometimes I will literally ask, “are you more detail-oriented or a bigger picture type of person?”. If I am hiring for a receptionist position, I want to hear detail-oriented. A bigger picture mentality gets bored very quickly with a position as repetitive as a receptionist. It is a very important position, but you need somebody who is comfortable with routine.

I’m not perfect and neither are you!
With everything that gets thrown on us in business and our personal lives, the quest for perfection seems to occupy our mind way too often.
No matter how hard we try, we will never be perfect however we can always perform at a higher level.
What we always need to remember is the difference between perfection and excellence. The difference is simple; one of them is possible.
So as setting expectations go, be careful how you set them. As much as you would like you and your staff to be perfect the answer is to strive for excellence. The difference again, is that only one is possible.
When we strive for perfection the only outcome is constant and uninterrupted disappointment. When we strive for excellence we can always decide to do things without compromise.
A lot has changed in our business over the last 10 years, that’s why excellence is our goal and perfection is something we shouldn’t think so much about.
This week if you think about all of your goals and all of your objectives, be very careful to be fair with yourself and your staff and continue to strive for excellence or to operate without compromise and do not focus on being perfect.
You can do this.
