How Do You Hire Winning Team Members?

In a company, team success always begins with hiring the right person for the job. This means that if you want your team to be successful, it should be your top priority as a leader to hire “winning team members”.

In addition to ensuring that the person you hire has the required skill for the position, the candidate must most importantly, have the potential to grow within the organization…he/she must be a coachable person!

So, to ensure that you are hiring the best employees, here are some tips to use during the hiring process:

1. Focus on finding the right candidate

Many companies spend lots of time trying to find the right person that fits the position. However, a common mistake they make is to redefine the job description to fit the candidate’s skill. A better strategy is to modify the search strategy so that the organization insists on finding the right fit for the position in question.

2. Hire only when absolutely necessary

Hiring should not be done impulsively just because there is an open position. Making a bad hire is worse off as the cost of training, lost productivity and lost time are usually far greater than having an empty position.

3. Hire for attitude and train for skill

Do not hire someone you wouldn’t invite for lunch. This means a person of culture and positive attitude is way better than a highly skilled low culture individual. As you interview, expose candidates to would-be team members to get a sense of how they behave. It is vital for teams to get along and work well together.

4. Improve your interview process

Since the cost of bad hire is great, constantly improve your hiring process to ensure that you carefully scrutinize candidates. Consider multiple step interviews to have the opportunity to test different aspects.

5. Resolve any hiring mistakes immediately

If you have a bad hire, take action immediately. Start by having an honest conversation and consider if training is an option. If training is not an option, consider the cost of firing and if manageable disenage fast.

Key point: The hiring process will either make you or break you. Allowing wrong people to slip in your team is the fastest way to ruin your organization’s culture, productivity and to create unnecessary costs.

With more clarity, how do you hire only winning team members in your organization?
