Did you hire well? How do you know?

General, Hiring, Misc., David Kushan

When making business decisions, specifically those that require a significant financial investment, it’s customary for an organization to determine their return on investment (ROI). Without an idea of the ROI, it’s almost impossible to conclude whether the investment would be a good or bad decision.

Formula for success

General, Hiring, Misc., David Kushan

New Year’s is a time when we put goals and resolutions in place. But resolutions tend to fade away and, ultimately, fail. Instead, it’s important to sit down and focus on just a few areas that you’re absolutely committed to improving.

Are your new team members just grateful to have a job?

General, Hiring, Misc., David Kushan

Regardless of who’s available in the job market, your world-class talent-access process should remain consistent. Unfortunately, too many organizations change their methods based on how many candidates are available at a particular moment in time. Having said that, here’s an example of how changing your process greatly impacts the candidate experience.

Which is your strategy and mindset — #1 or #2?

1. Since many people are unemployed, through no fault of their own, we now have an opportunity to put together a world-class talent-attraction process and have access to many candidates whom we typically wouldn’t.

2. Since many people are unemployed, we can take longer than we typically do, being more thorough than we normally are, because many of those people are waiting to get a job.

At the end of your hiring process, when you extend an offer and the selected candidate accepts, do you care that the candidate can truly say, “I accept your offer and really enjoyed the process of getting to know you and your organization”?

I ask this because I’ve often heard, “I’m accepting the offer and we’ll see where this goes.” Candidates say this because they thought that the hiring process was ridiculous. Of course, they’re not going to tell you that.

Is this how you want your relationship to start off with new members of your team?

Remember, there’s a difference between a candidate being grateful just to have a job and that same person being grateful to have a job specifically with your organization.

Spotting Talent Or Filling Job Requirements

General, Hiring, Misc., David Kushan

You see it all the time: Talent Acquisition Teams. But what does the title actually mean? Are they looking for talent? Or are they looking for years of experience? Talent is defined as a natural aptitude or skill.  But as we know, there are candidates who don’t get the job or even an interview because they don’t have a desired minimum years of experience. Does talent come to fruition only after a certain number of years?
