Attracting, retaining and motivating your people are key business initiatives that you need to address as your organization evolves. Often we have a systematized approach to the interview process – or even recruiting – but haven’t thought through the benefits of creating a systematized approach to the hiring process itself.
That is…until you find yourself with a burning turnover or retention issue.
Many managers lament the difficulty in finding good people. The truth is that there are a lot of “good people,” but you don’t necessarily have a formula for successful hiring.
Feel free to respond to the following questionnaire as a starting point to evaluate your situation.
- I’m satisfied with the level of turnover in my company.
- It’s easy for us to recruit and hire for our key positions.
- Our firm easily attracts top performers.
- Our people really like working for our company.
- We value our people and show our appreciation on a regular basis.
- We regularly raise the bar on hiring so that we stay competitive.
- We provide opportunities for our people to advance within our firm.
- We make available professional development opportunities for our people to stay ahead.
- We have non-cash ways of recognizing our people that they appreciate.
- We want our people to feel that working for us makes their value higher.
If you answered false to more than two of these statements, you may want to rethink how you attract, retain and motivate your people. Determine whether this is a company-wide challenge, or if it is specific to certain areas in your company.
We provide a systematized benchmarking process for hiring the right people for the right positions. Contact us to see how we can assist you in this area.
