Hiring and Keeping Top Performers

Click to go Back



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.
