Recruiting the Team: Hiring Efficient, Productive Employees


Your hiring practices could make or break your company in the next few years. Even replacing entry-level employees will most likely cost you thousands of dollars and waste hundreds of hours of your time. This is why it is so important for business owners and their HR teams to make sure they hire productive, efficient, and reliable employees every single time.

Identify What You Need

For many small to mid-sized business owners, it is difficult to separate what they want from what they need. Before you start taking a look at some of the personality traits you would like around the office, you should first consider the hard skills that the employee will need. These are unique skills that will not be practical to teach during on-the-job training. An example of this would be understanding a specific programming language that your company uses.
