A practical guide for recruiting, training, and maintaining high-performing employees.
By Clint Smith ‧ RELEASE DATE: Aug. 8, 2023
Smith’s book provides a clear and practical guide to successfully recruiting and retaining top-notch employees. He explains the importance of understanding and expressing the company’s values, mission, and other aspects of its culture. He then outlines strategies for identifying hiring needs, recruiting, interviewing, and making the hire. Additionally, Smith emphasizes the importance of keeping staff engaged and motivated by providing support and investing in professional development. He offers thought-provoking questions such as “Who is helping you see your blind spots during the hiring process?” and “Are you selling job seekers on the responsibilities or the opportunity?” He also provides concrete suggestions for incorporating best practices, drawing on his own experiences and those of other well-known companies and authors. To help readers implement the systems described in the book, Smith has created a companion website with sample checklists, templates, and worksheets. His approach is a refreshing alternative to the typical advice on hiring and getting hired, which focuses on beating systems or verifying skill sets. Smith’s book provides the resources to make the claim that people are a company’s greatest asset a reality.
