How to Hire ‘Great’ Employees For Your Startup

How to Hire ‘Great’ Employees For Your Startup

What makes a great company? Is it their products or services, how they impact the economy, their contribution to the environment, or the sociological advancements they provide? What is it that really makes people say: that is a great company?

In short: People

People are the business. They are the people answering the phone, creating the products, and building the software. The ones representing the tangible form of the business, the consumers and the competitors. They are what make up everything.

So, when we ask what makes a great company, we can logically say; great people.

But what makes a great candidate, and how do we find one? How do we know if someone is great for a company? Do we look at their character traits, culture, where they went to school, how well they test on paper, or their skills and abilities? How do we find these people? Do we ask our colleagues for references, do we tap into our own network, or bring in an external staffing agency? Do we source through all the countless job boards, try social media, or do we pitch at employment booths on college campuses?

First, how do we spot a great candidate? I am not talking about what specifically qualifies them for the job (i.e. years of experience, education, and skillset), but what makes them individually great.

Next, let’s talk about how to hire great people and what resources to use.

So, there you have it. A great company is made of great people. The way to make sure you are hiring great people and building a great team is to find and recognize an individual’s ambition, resourcefulness, and presence during your hiring processes. The best way to build a great team is by applying seamless application processes within the company and utilizing the best tools and local resources offered.
