Interviewing for Engagement: Aligning Career Goals with Business Goals
What is an engaged employee? The easy answer: someone who wants to be in their job. Engaged employees are motivated, innovative team players who will add to your bottom line just by being themselves. When you hire new employees, it is vital to identify what motivates the new recruit and to begin the conversation during the recruiting process. Your managers can improve their interviewing skills by learning how to probe for skill fit, culture fit, and fit with a candidate’s career aspirations. Interviewing and hiring can be stressful because your organization has a lot riding on those new hires, you can reduce stress with a training from Purposeful Hire.
