Once of the things that great companies do is they hire the best people. These successful companies aren’t afraid to recruit the best people from other organizations or pull talented people from other industries. In a previous post, I talked about the importance of following the ACM model when looking for the right people. My model identifies the three attributes that are most important to an organization when hiring: Attitude, Competency, and Mindset.
Let’s talk a little more about each one:
- Attitude means that an employee has a passion for the organization and what it is trying to accomplish and is excited about being a part of the organization.
- Competency means that employees have the right capabilities to do their jobs, or have the ability to learn the right skills.
- Mindset means that an employee has a passion for the organization and what it is trying to accomplish. Having the right mindset allows an employee to come to work every day and look for ways to improve the performance of the company.
If any one of these attributes is missing, then the employee will likely not last very long with the organization. Integrate the search for these three attributes into your hiring process and you will attract better people and make better hiring decisions.
