One of the keys to achieving business success is by hiring quality employees. The right people can make or break any profit-making enterprise, as they are the foundation upon which a company’s profitability depend.
It only takes one bad apple to spoil the bunch, so much so that a single bad hire could potentially ruin the whole team’s motivation. This will negatively affect productivity, and ultimately, impact the bottom line.
However, bringing in the perfect candidate to fill a role in your company is not an easy task. Potential hires that look good on paper do not always guarantee the right fit.
Someone who doesn’t shine during the interview might prove to be a better performer, even when compared to someone else who passes it with flying colors. Finding candidates for the right role goes beyond technical skills or the perfect CV. Other factors must be considered as well.
