When it comes to running a successful business, hiring the right employee is a task at hand. Here are 4 things entrepreneurs must consider while hiring.
- Assess the Personality of the Candidate
It is important to assess whether the potential candidate has the personality to fit into a particular role or responsibility or not. A misfit either makes or breaks the organization.
- Clear Demarcation of Roles and Responsibility
At times hiring a person is easy but sustaining employees is a problem. When you clearly define and communicate your expectations to the potential candidate and vice versa, it becomes easier to know whether he or she is suitable for the job.
- Don’t Hire Out of Desperation
A word of caution for all employers. Don’t hire because you are desperately in need of hands that can help unload some of the work off your shoulders. Hiring out of necessity and not impulse can help you get the right person for the company.
- A Written Test
A written test is one of the must-haves and must-dos while hiring. A person’s true demeanour, character, knowledge and skills come out better on paper than in anything else.
