It might be one of the oldest problems in business: successfully recognizing a hire who will be a great fit for your company. In episode 10 of the Company Growth Podcast, Alysha Dominico interviews Delilah Chartrand of Nesda Technologies Ltd., a company that provides I.T. services and consulting. In this episode, you’ll hear how Delilah approaches the interview process, how to deal with a low-availability talent market, and why developing a strong personal brand can help a company’s appeal.
The Secret to Job Interviews and Finding the Best People for the Job
First of all, “This isn’t Utopia,” as Delilah says. There are always going to be struggles in the hiring process and the first idea that should be cast out is chasing a hiring perfection that doesn’t exist. What employers who want to improve their hiring process need to understand is that hiring is a conversation.
Delilah is a big believer that an employer’s part in a job interview is not just to evaluate a potential hire, the interviewee is there to interview you as well. A good hiring process is treated as a two-way street, and the company has to be as good a fit for the employee as the employee is for the company.
It’s especially important to recognize if your industry is experiencing a low-availability talent market, where skilled employees are in such high demand that they have their pick of companies to work for. Pay might not be everything to people in such a position, so get creative about selling your company atmosphere and the benefits your company brings that might be less tangible than pay and benefits.
Focusing on the other benefits of your company (culture, business ethics, etc.) is especially true when hiring younger people: millennials are more willing than previous generations to take a pay cut if it means finding a workplace that fits them better.
