Re-Introducing Character into the Hiring Process

Re-Introducing Character into the Hiring Process | Hiring | Scoop.it

Warren Buffet once relayed the wisdom of another business leader that when looking to hire, managers should look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence and energy, and that if the first one isn’t present, the other two will kill you.

 

The current business climate has never been tougher on senior managers. Based on executive turnover statistics, many managers do not seem up to the task.  Perhaps organizations are too impatient, they cannot attract sufficient talent etc. Or, there is another reason.  The hiring process is ignoring a fundamental tenet of effective management — character.  You don’t need to go far (Dennis Kozlowski of Tyco and Jeffrey Skilling of Enron quickly come to mind) to find examples of how character deficit has seriously harmed a company. Fortunately, firms can bridge this character gap through better selection criteria and recruiting processes.

With the cost of a bad senior-level hire potentially reaching 15 times his or her salary, organizations should be hiring based on character and integrity, not just skills and experience. Here's how.

The interaction, trust and camaraderie of your teams can make or break your business.

Cathy Matthews's curator insight, March 21, 2014 9:56 AM

Your business team is like family and should be treated with dignity and respect. Your team, if focused on obtaining a common goal and proud (not to mention excited) to come to work each day, is what makes an organization successful. This is accomplished through defined goals, clear strategy, clear communication, and working well with others. As my dad used to say (a very successful businessman who worked his way to President of his company), there are 3 rules to live by in the business world: 1. Love what you do; 2. Love the people you work with; 3. Love yourself.

The Art Of Hiring: Three Secrets From America's Most Promising Companies | Hiring | Scoop.it

It’s a well-worn truism: Hiring is both one of the most important and difficult tasks any entrepreneur faces in building a business. The quality of people filling a company’s ranks ripples through every measure of performance – sales, product development and partner relations included. More importantly, it determines whether you actually enjoy heading into work every day. With each new recruit, business owners fine-tune the DNA of their firms, so it pays to get it right.
