Hiring the right people for your business


Your business needs the right talent to thrive and grow.  So, it is vital to hire the best people for the job and to create  team that will help you push the company forward.

But how do you know which new roles to prioritise when hiring?  And how do you go about choosing an applicant who will have the right capabilities and skills for the business?

Choosing the right person for the job
A good team is made up of diverse group of employees, with a mix of different personalities, technical abilities and people skills.

When the time comes to take on a new person, it's vital that you put some real thought into who you are hiring and why.

Before you take on a new member:

  •  Know what roles are needed in the business - take some time to work out where the gaps are, so you have a precise overview of where each role sits and how that role fits into your operations and business strategy.
  • Look for key shared values - nothing creates great company culture better than the people within the organisation.  Create a key values statement and define what you, as the owner, believe in.  Keep these values top of mind in the interview process.  It is important that employees share your values and mindset.
  • Have a clear job description - ensure that nay new role has a very detailed job description, so you can measure an applicant's abilities against what's required.  If you start the process with a clear idea of what you need, you will get a better outcome.
  • Think about the team dynamic - a bad apple can ruin the whole barrel, so assess how you think any applicant will fit, as a personality, into your existing team.

    - Nelly Evans,Powdercoat Select
  • "Nelly (my wife) told me she had signed up for some business training and I told her it was a waste of time and money. I wasn't interested in doing it at all because both our businesses are firing on all cylinders, but to show her support, I went along to the first workshop and I was impressed. Nelly and I have been doing a lot of talking, but we realised that we never had the right mindset to take action. - Read more
