Develop and Process a Pool of Qualified

The "Tallest Pygmy" syndrome comprises ten basic hiring mistakes that I see companies making over and over again. In this book I will look at the 10 most common mistakes, identify where they fit into the hiring process and offer suggestions for how they can be corrected.

The suggestions are accompanied by links to articles that I have written and specific tools that I have developed to help small business owners hire better people.

The Four Critical Steps to Hiring

  • Establish the Profile

    Make sure that you know what talent you are trying to hire. Start from scratch and take time to define the job rather than rushing and simply rehiring the person that you are replacing.

  • Develop the Process

    Successful hiring depends on having real choices. Write advertisements that will attract a large pool of candidates and have a process so that heavy response levels don’t stretch your resources    .

    The Time Edge

  • Grade Candidates

    You can’t afford to rush the selection process. You need to have an effective screening process and evaluate candidate skills carefully in relation to the job profile you established.
