We have a saying in our company: “You don’t have awesome companies; you have awesome people.”
The people you hire turn your vision into reality, so hiring the right fit for any position is crucial. Hire the wrong person, and not only will you end up wasting months of time and a ton of money; they can damage the culture of your company as well.
Too often though I see small business owners and entrepreneurs hire without clear intention, or worse, hire someone just because they were recommended by a friend.
Hiring this way shows a complete lack of value for you and your business. You need to realize that no matter how big or small your company is, it offers a unique culture and opportunities that people want. You just need to hone your hiring process so you can identify those people, and so those people can find you!
We call our process “The 4R’s,” and we use it to define any new position with our company. It helps us clearly identify what skills, knowledge, and personality a candidate needs to be the right fit.
Play the video below to discover what The 4R’s are and how you can use them in your business!
The hiring process is never perfect, but if you hire with intention, you can find the people that will help you turn your vision into reality.
As an entrepreneur, I absolutely love having a team that is a pleasure to work with everyday. They support me, and I mutually support them. When you hire with intention, that’s exactly what you can create.
