How to Hire the Best Candidate
Here are the crucial things to look at to help you hire the best people for a growing business.
1. Alignment with values
Check if the candidate connects with your ‘why’. If they do, they will enjoy working with you and it will be easier to overcome difficulties for both sides.
Trust has to be mutual – you need to be able to trust each other. During the interview, think whether you find the candidate trustworthy. But it doesn’t end at the interview. You need to build mutual trust when they join your company. After you’ve hired a new person, monitor them closely until you trust them.
3. Quality and speed of work
In a fast-paced startup environment the speed of delivery is very important. Look for people who can deliver quality work and do it quickly. If you want to grow fast, you need to surround yourself with people who can deliver fast.
4. Personal development
Hire people who are constantly working on self-improvement. As they grow, they will help your business grow and take it to the new place. Give them a chance to develop their skills and support their learning. The reason why it’s important to hire eager learners is that your company is going to evolve and is going to be a different place after a while. You need to have on board people who are able to adapt to the new environment and grow with you.
