I’ve been involved in running companies for over 20 years now and I thought I would just read this book as a courtesy to the author who I’d just met and had given me a copy of her book.
If I hadn’t read this book it would have been a discourtesy to myself,my future employees and to my new company.
It took me just over an hour to read but it is packed full of practical tips on recruiting and but more importantly mixes these with tips on thinking about and writing down your Vision,Mission,Values and Culture before you ever recruit anyone.
This alone could help you create a really strong foundation for a great team for the future.
I am not too far away from recruiting my first employee and have a rapid growth people plan for the coming 3 years and I will be reaching for this book not just when we recruit but also every 3/6 months or so as a refresher to ensure we are on the right track.
My greatest takeaway-Dont take on someone unless they are 100% right for the business.
Hiring in this type of advice would cost you at least £2000 and even then I’m not sure you would get the practical,easy to follow stuff about designing your Company Vision,Mission etc
Probably the best,most valuable hour’s reading I’ve ever undertaken.As it says on the back of the book, ‘start applying this now and move towards becoming an extraordinary business to work for’.
