What Do Recruiting and Wimbledon Have in Common?
Recruiting and tennis don't always make it into the same conversations, but no one can deny that hard work and skill are needed to execute both.
The best of the best make it to Wimbledon. Of those top seeds, only the players who dominate make it through the draw.
Expertise is key. So is the right fit. Both are needed to win.
In your business, your team members are like those players. They need to be skilled and fit well within your culture in order for them to do their jobs successfully and make you money. Part-time, full-time, seasonal - no matter the number of hours they work or what their role in the company, they need to be on their A-game.
Hiring is never easy. After working with hundreds of clients and thousands of job seekers over more than a decade, we know how true this is! We understand the importance of both expertise and harmony among the team. Our bench of all-stars are assessed for compatibility with each of our clients because every hire counts. Every person who represents your brand has the power to elevate it or do just the opposite.
How can you win at the hiring game?
- Write a tight job description
- Get to know your applicants through in-person (or at the very least video-based) interviews
- Assess candidates for skill set as well as fit with your organizational culture
- Take the process seriously, no matter the role.
We’d love to help you build your winning team!
