MBA2185 Q&A Wednesday: How do I not hire the wrong person?

A bad hire can cost you.

There’s nothing worse than wasting time, money, and effort bringing in someone new, only to lose them shortly thereafter.

Maybe they don’t have the right skills. Maybe they lack the right work ethic. More often, they don’t have the right attitude. But that’s not the most important reason it didn’t work out. The most important reason is that you didn’t see what they were lacking before you hired them.

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and we’ve got a listener who’s having trouble finding the right help.

In this episode, we share our exact system for hiring, for any position. From the initial job posting to the final interview to the trial period (yes, there should be a trial period), we share step by step how we almost always manage to find a great fit. 

Before your next hire, hear how our process works — and decide if it can work for you. Click Play!
