When it comes to the most important resource in your organization, the human one, big companies tend to over-complicate and small companies can ignore some of the basic and critical pieces of effective 'cradle to grave' handling of you and me.
If they get it right, it's a win/win for you AND them... The SHE DR is in:
'Post and Pray' is over. Go out of your way to get the right fit. Be PRO-ACTIVE. LinkedIn, join relevant groups, work your own contacts and ask others to do the same. Don't forget employee referrals, the #1 way go get great candidates.
Behavioral Interviewing. Make sure your evaluation is competency based. Gut isn't good enough! Keep it objective. Give homework to see what they can do. Source/Interview twice, Hire once. I just made that up.
10 question employees as consciously or un... YOU should know the answer to. (expectations? recognition, development, opinions, etc.)
How can we work together to improve performance in your current role and prepare you for the next one?
Employees don't leave companies, they leave managers, and few others. Do you know what they are?
Let's keep it simple.
What am I missing? What are the other keys to success?
Thanks for your feedback!
