How to identify your next star employee?
Hiring a new employee is always a gamble. After you’ve invested time and resources to source, screen, and train a new hire, you want to be sure there’s a high Return on Investment (ROI). By identifying these core competencies, you’ll be able to figure out who will be your best and brightest employee before you even hire them.
A candidate that can express him/herself articulately and has good listening comprehension skills will be a valuable member of your team. Good communication between employees will allow the department to run smoothly.
It’s also important to look for relevant industry experience, as well.
At headhuntr.io, we use Candidate Intelligence to source and screen candidates with the right skills, product knowledge and industry experience. Candidates that meet (or beat) the job’s requirements settle into their roles faster.
It also shows that a candidate has a sense of priorities, and employees who know how to prioritize work well without much guidance.
Don’t give into the pressure of hiring based on skills and experience alone. If you want your business to have long-term success, you’ll need to look beyond the resume.
