3 things that youโ€™ve learned about hiring and retaining great talent?

โœ… Getting The Right Fit – Over the years, we found that hiring based on personality that could fit into the companyโ€™s culture and values is more valuable than hiring based on skills or experience. A person with a positive attitude can greatly contribute to the productivity and efficiency of the team. Additionally, such individuals will be more aligned with the companyโ€™s mission and goals, which can decrease churn and lead to a more cohesive work environment.

โœ…Onboarding Process – If you want to get new hires up to speed and be more efficient, a proper and well documented onboarding process is crucial. This will help to prevent confusion for the new hires and they can have something to refer to if they do not understand fully. We use videos recordings, workflow graphics and process flow charts to augment the processes for their role so that itโ€™s clear for them.ย 

โœ…Constant Feedback / Evaluation / Support – Providing feedback and support to employees is crucial for both their personal and company growth. Regular feedback will help them to understand their strengths and weakness. A motivated employee will like to know how they can work better and feel that they can contribute meaningfully to the company, which is important for workplace happiness.
