Hiring the wrong candidate is expensive and time consuming.
This is even worse when recruiting for critical leadership positions, as this could lead to a host of devastating problems such as employee turnover and organizational misalignment.
To avoid wrong hires, you want to rethink your candidate sourcing, selection, and hiring processes to reflect your organizational values, goals, and culture.
Instead of hiring a candidate based solely on their past performance, you want to factor in their potential and other attributes such as their ability to learn, flexibility, core values, and belief system.
Follow these suggestions and you will be in the right path to hiring the perfect candidate for your organization.
