I'm back after 10 beautiful days of vacationing on Cape Cod. It's the longest vacation I've ever taken and I highly recommend it to anyone who needs a good break.
I'm going to cover a 5 part series this week on how to hire. We'll begin at the beginning...
So you have a vacancy to fill. Why? Where? What's the work to be done, how and when?!
Take this as an opportunity instead of looking upon it as a burden.
What work needs to be done and with who? Who will supervise the effort and why? How can you measure good work? What skills are required or can be learned on the job?
Take a good look around the team make-up and "re-engineer" if it's time to do so. Become friends with your compensation department and help them to understand what you need and why.
Begin to make a good list of action verbs for the position description...which we'll tackle tomorrow.
Make it a great day. lucia
