The biggest competitive advantage you will ever have over your competitors has to be the amazing employee that are a part of your team, taking your vision and making it a reality while handling a lot of the “heavy lifting” responsible for building your business from the inside out.
At the same time, there are a lot of otherwise smart and savvy business owners that really don’t take the time to find the most amazing employees available. Sure, there isn’t a business owner alive that wants to work with anyone less than the very best of the best – but many folks don’t know how to create the most effective hiring strategies to search out, recruit, and hire amazing employees that make all the difference.
Here are some helpful strategies to help you get the ball rolling extra
Brand your workplace
While it’s likely that you spend a considerable amount of time, money, and effort branding your business, your products, and your services the odds are just as likely that you don’t spend anywhere near as much time, money, or effort branding your workplace with the intention of attracting the best employees available.
This has to change if you’re going to have any opportunity to hire “rainmakers” from here on out.
Really think about the kind of culture you want to promote, think about how you can translate that culture effortlessly to potential recruits, and build the kind of workplace that people are naturally going to be drawn to – the kind of workplace that supports success across the board.
Networking is the lifeblood of your hiring process
Yes, it’s going to be rather simple and straightforward to put out job postings on the web today and collect applications from hundreds or even thousands of potential applicants (especially if you go for a global search) – but good old-fashioned networking is going to help you find better applicants faster than anything else.
Not only do you want to personally network for better employees, always keeping your eyes peeled for high-level talent that you can “poach” and bring on board, but you also want to make sure that every member of your business is networking with this intention in mind as well.
Encourage your people to bring top level applicants to your attention whenever and however they can. You may even have to create positions for true superstars rather than let networked talent slip through your fingers.
It will be worth it!
Create a job worth getting passionate over
The most successful employees you are ever going to bring aboard your team are going to be the kinds of employees that self start, that self motivate, and that drive themselves to grow your business while also working to further their career as much as they possibly can.
You’ll only ever be able to hire these kinds of studs when you create job positions with responsibilities and pay that are attractive to the kind of people that you are most interested in hiring in the first place.
