Could Your Company Be Missing the Opportunity To Be Better?

Steve Jobs is known for saying, “The best thing I have done was hire the A players.”

My own experience as both a hiring manager and as a recruiter has shown me that when you hire the best people, they more than pay for themselves.

Unfortunately, most companies want to hire as quickly and as cheaply as possible. HR or even owners search for candidates who are currently “doing” the same job the company is looking to fill. Such people are typically B and C players – not A players. They are cheap and fast to hire, but they don’t stick around and don’t make your company better.

When it comes to hiring, the only metrics companies, particularly HR people, track are the “time to fill” and “cost per hire.”

I am different. I track success metrics.

My clients:

1. Retain more than 50% of the employees I helped them hire for five or more years.
2. Promote virtually all these longer-tenured employees at least once.
3. Benefit from profit increases these people helped generate, totaling $100,000 to $100 million/year.

How have I accomplished this track record?

Through 30+ years of experience, I have developed a 5-step process I call “Smarter Search,” which I use on every recruitment I do.

I would be happy to talk to you about the critical elements involved, if you’d like to try it yourself. Or read more here:

If you have a key financial role to fill, and don’t want to do it yourself, I would love to talk to you about that.

The choice is yours – hire more carefully or lose the opportunity to improve your company with smarter hiring.
