It can be difficult to hire the right employees for the job. Some have compared hiring employees to a dating game. The hiring personnel will need to ask whether they have properly represented the company. Consider how the new hire is experiencing the organization on the whole. Think about whether the prospective employee will fit in with the organization itself. That could influence whether the company actually hires the person. These decisions are big and can impact the company.
- Hiring employees is like dating, in so much as you are laying the groundwork for a future relationship.
- Clear expectations of performance are necessary in order to set up an employee for success.
- A worker’s time and energy need to be divided between work and play, as well as combining work and play.
“Onboarding and induction, or what I like to call the ‘dating’ phase, is really important to have a truly engaged team in the long term.”
