A strong, intelligent hiring process that is consistently executed is a critical element for long-term success. Here’s a short course about how to build one.

Step 1: Define your organization’s brand. Why would someone want to work here?

Step 2: What role are you trying to fulfill? Create a Job Benchmark.

Step 3:  Post the job. (There’s more to this than you think!)

Step 4:  Screen, screen and screen

Step 5: Conduct the formal interviews. (That’s interviews with an “s.”)

Step 6:  Make the hiring decision.
