Top customer reviews
Moving through automotive management roles throughout my career, the most training I ever received was the annual day-long meeting with the employment attorney covering legal issues and what NOT to say. This has been the most comprehensive program I have found to scout top talent.
A must have for anyone with the privilege of hiring people!
Adam Robinson, author of The Best Team Wins, asks the question, “Would you rather spend time up front getting great people in the door, or more time managing the problems created by hiring the wrong people for your organization?”
Any manager who has had to deal with a malcontented employee will be quick to point out that hiring the proper person is much preferred to the constant headache of dealing with a poor hire.
According to Mr. Robinson, in our hyper competitive economy, having the right employees is the last competitive advantage a company has.
The premise of the book is quite simple. “Hiring new employees is no different from any other business process. When the process is thought out, documented and meticulously followed, the results are consistent and produce actionable outcomes.”
Mr. Robinson takes all the work out of figuring out and documenting the process. Based on his many years of experience, he provides a step by step process for finding the right candidates, creating a scorecard so all candidates are evaluated uniformly, making the right offer and keeping your good people.
As you read the book you realize how simple and straightforward the process is. Instead of relying on gut feelings, you have a simple but powerful process to ensure you make the best hiring decision.
There are specific scripts and examples of question that will fit most hiring situations. In addition, most of the concepts are documented with actual case studies that illustrate the concept in practice. There are examples of offer letters and other valuable tools that you can use. There is also a link to other resources on the website for the book.
This is an extremely valuable tool for any one charged with hiring people. The process will work no matter the size of the organization. I would not try to hire any employee without some formal process. This one is easy to follow, well thought out and through. A handy tool for any manager wanting to make better hires.
I was provided a review copy of this book.
Throughout the book, Robinson offers practical, relatable advice–and my own curiosity led me to his business, Hireology. Checking out his website (Hireology.com) also helped to legitimize his advice, because he has an award-winning company. He also cites numerous successful entrepreneurs, who have also been quite successful. Overall, I’d say it’s a straightforward, accessible book, and it's highly relevant to both employers and employees.
The book is half practice advice and half real-life stories about business owners who use his hiring system and have had it change their organizations substantially.
I do not run a business, nor do I work in HR; but this book covers the topic from beginning to end without using any jargon. I could make a hire tomorrow, if I only had a company!
