โ€‹The hiring process can be a daunting one for Leaders and Managers, especially if the need for more people is something your business needs ASAP. 

It's no lie that there is a bit of an art to hiring efficiently and effectivelyโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ‘‹ that is why us recruiters exist!

The best way to start the process is to write down a list of non-negotiables for what you require in a particular role.

In our top 3, are continuous learners, or employees with a ๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜„๐˜๐—ต ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐˜. 

Why? We feel that developing a workplace culture based on continuous learning can increase employee engagement, boosting happiness and productivity. In the long term, this will strengthen your ability to recruit and retain employees. 

So, how do we determine if someone has a growth mindset? 

They will:
๐Ÿ’ฅ Embrace challenges
๐Ÿ’ฅ Believe that there is no limit to learning and developing new skills and knowledge 
๐Ÿ’ฅ Demonstrate persistence when faced with setbacks
๐Ÿ’ฅ Put in the effort in everything they do
๐Ÿ’ฅ Can take feedback and learn from it
๐Ÿ’ฅ Celebrate the successes of others around them
๐Ÿ’ฅ Welcome and identify new opportunities to learn and grow

Some employees may demonstrate all of these, and some just a few. 

Considering these key attributes in employees (past and future) will help to determine if someone is the right fit for your team. 

It might even be a good idea to structure some questions around these points for the initial interview, that will help to discover those who thrive off learning and adopt a growth mindset when it comes to their career and work. 

Give it a go and let us know what you think!
