Recently I wrote an article that appeared in Corp Detroit Magazine and a point I discussed was how important it was to hire the best people to insure the best service to your clients.
As far as the customer’s purchase of your product or service is concerned, your team provides the most important part of the transaction.
Far too often business owners hire the first person that comes through the door and end up regretting it later.
Some of the qualities too look out for that are red flags when it comes to a sub par applicant are:
- late to the first interview
- tattoos and body piercings in places that cannot be covered
- use of profanity
- unprofessional attire
One place to look for good applicants is to ask your good employees for referrals. Typically your good employees have friends that share similar values and could be a great addition to your company.
