Effective Hiring Techniques

In his book, “Good to Great”, author Jim Collins offers that one of the key components to an organization’s growth and success is “getting the right people on the bus”. Much easier said than done, isn’t it!

The people you employ are not just “working there”, they ARE your business. They portray to everyone, from the UPS person to your firm’s most valuable prospect and client, who you are, what you do and how well you do it. They create and represent your firm’s brand and, whether or not your name is on the front door, they represent you – the owner.

So…how do you find the people who have the “right stuff”, whose experience, skills and talents will bring the most value to your firm…and, how do you keep them?
