In ‘Who’ Geoff Smart & Randy Street tackle what’s commonly referred to as the biggest problem in business today – hiring incompetent staff members. Hiring the wrong people can set big businesses back millions of dollars and countless hours in training and recruitment. Not to mention the damage it can do to other employees who become unmotivated or unhappy with the climate within the workplace when staff turnover rates increase.
The good part according to Smart and Street? This is something that’s easily fixed. Using their method for hiring that’s based on 1300+ hours of interviews with more than 20 billionaires and 300 CEO’s, the pair have uncovered a foolproof method of hiring the right people for the job, every time.
Whether you’re the owner of a successful business or nominating someone on your local PTA, this method will show you what to look for and how to find out what you need to know.
This book forces you to think about what you really want from the person you’re hiring – qualifications aside, what traits are you looking for? It then gives you questions that are tailored to find out what that person is really like and determine whether or not they are in-step with your goals. It warns you to look beyond common hiring methods, and discover how to choose the A candidates from the B’s & C’s.
And so, this book is not simply for those looking to hire quality staff members, it’s also for those looking to interview with their best foot forward.
