Daily Buzz: Rethink Your Recruiting Process

To find the right person, you must tweak the recruiting process

When it comes to recruiting new team members, it’s important to find people who fit your company culture. That said, it’s not always easy to see whether a prospective employee will make a good fit until he or she has already been hired—and you find out too late.

Instead of wasting time and money hiring the wrong type of person, your organization should create small tweaks in its recruiting process to ensure you’re attracting people who have the right professional and people skills.

“Revamping any association process can seem like a long and hard road, but it doesn’t have to be,” says Addy M. Kujawa in a post on Association Success. “Tweaking something small can make a big difference to your association culture.”

For instance, her team at the American Alliance of Orthopaedic Executives (AAOE) switched to outlining required interests and culture expectations alongside skills. Once a candidate made it past the initial interview, he or she had to complete an exercise that was created collectively by the whole team. The final hiring decision is also the result of a the group.

“The experience has been great,” Kujawa says. “When we bring people in, everybody feels very invested in their success and getting them onboarded and trained well. Together, we help them build their career path within our organization.”
