A manager’s dream is to hire top performers. It makes
their job easier and they look better to upper management
as a result.
However, because of many reasons, some managers spend too
little of time on hiring. The professional manager knows a
wrong hiring decision may take a long time to correct. They
realize how much time and effort will go into either bringing
the wrongly hired individual to an acceptable performance
or going through the discipline process.
The professional does not leave the hiring result to luck.
They spend more time on hiring and less time on discipline.
Managers look for new employees that are a match. They have
the skills and the desire to do the job. They are looking
for people that will be good at a job they’ll love.
They know these are the ingredients of top performance.
