Like many partners or senior managers, do you find the recruitment process in your firm a lottery?

For your firm's success, it's critical that every person is right for their job.

But how can you ensure you’re hiring the right person for the right job?

Do you use a specific recruitment process?

If you treat recruitment as just another business hassle, it’s unlikely you’ll hire the right person. In order to hire the best people more often, you must be committed to a more strategic approach.

Of course, there are different levels of personnel, and you will need to vary your approach depending on who you want to recruit - a checkout person will demand a different approach to a sales manager. However, if you use a proven 6-step process throughout, your chances of getting it right the first time will greatly improve.

Yes, it takes time and energy to go through the whole process thoroughly, but I'm sure you'd agree it’s worth it if it means that you are less likely to need to recruit for the same job again.
