Why Recruitment is Like Dating
Hiring a new employee is a lot like dating. At the beginning, the other person seems almost too good to be true. Everyone is on their best behaviour. They seem clever, charming ... one of the best girlfriends/boyfriends/candidates you've seen in ages!
But after the hire and the "honeymoon phase", things start to change...
They no longer want to visit your family for Sunday lunch. Dinner is eaten on the coffee table in front of the tele. Flowers and chocolates become a distant memory. Or, in the case of a new employee, they become a bit less helpful, late for meetings, disinterested and distracted.
Making the wrong hire is an expensive mistake for any business. But by getting really clear on the requirements up-front, you can ensure your next hire is the best. (You've got to know what you want, to be able to find it!).
