Finding good people is hard. Sure, you might interview a few folk who tick off the key qualifications and skills needed for a role… but do they have what it takes to help grow your team and your business? Better still, do they want to change the world? Because that right there is another level entirely. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s a complex process and one that needs to be handled with care – after all, you’re looking for that one individual who not only ticks those all-important boxes, but displays the qualities we know are crucial for success. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Look for humility, diligence, knowledge and the ability to inspire – all traits that are consistent among great leaders. Look for organisational focus, examples of strength during adversity, resilience and tenacity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And finally, look for compatability – because when it comes to hiring, it has to be a good fit for the company as a whole. Screen diligently, and perhaps consider spending some quality time with candidates outside of the office before making an offer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our final piece of advice? Follow your gut. #theampersandway
Friday we had our company Christmas party. We celebrated with an awesome day out on a catamaran from the waterfront to Clifton. Unfortunately it wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea and we had to call in @oceanexperiencesct to pick up a couple of the team to take them back to land, it ended up being an adventure for them where those frowns turned to massive smiles! #christmasparty#werk#festiveseason#recruiterlife#southafrica#capetown
🍾🥂 Mój pierwszy wpis na blogu! Wreszcie się zdecydowałam 🤓 realizacja mojego celu i marzenia💡 długo biłam się z myślami, w końcu dzięki bliskim memu sercu osobom odważyłam się opublikować długo "odpoczywający" wpis.
Recruiting someone like us is easier, so is managing someone simmilar. A homogenous group is more naturally bonded. But diversity makes your team and company stronger, it makes sure ideas are flowing and being challenged and that capabilities complete each other. Look for people who bring something different to the table and make you better.
Buying a house is as easy as 1-2-3 🤷🏻♀️ We’re on the hunt for a home in Minnesota and currently living in North Carolina! This is a nerve racking process considering we’re entering a competitive market and we’ll be buying sight unseen🙃 So this is where we are: We’ve submitted offer on three houses they were not accepted. Our most recent offer is being considered, but they are waiting for more competitive options. We are patiently waiting (and praying) that we’ll hear soon so we can proceed! All this being said we are so excited for this move and can’t wait to see what Minnesota has in store for us!
