Summary: Growing your business is always a top priority. By bringing on new team members who are specifically aligned with your business goals, you can take your company to the next level. That's strategic hiring!
"One of the biggest challenges a company faces as it scales is to revamp its recruiting and employee onboarding processes" — Elad Gil, High Growth Handbook.
As a fashion company, growing your business is always a top priority. Strategic hiring is one of the most promising ways to accomplish this growth.
The #1 mistake fashion companies make while hiring is onboarding new people without a strategic plan.
Strategic hiring is crucial to the growth of any business. You need to understand your company's work culture and what kind of people will fit into that culture. Define what you're looking for in a new employee, and articulate that to potential candidates.
It's important to remember that even if someone is qualified on paper, it doesn't mean they are the right fit for your company. And it's also important to be open to candidates who might not have a lot of experience but who have the potential to grow with your company.
Hiring thoughtfully and strategically will help your business grow and thrive.
The 3-step process to hiring strategically: Develop, Recognize, Evaluate
Developing an effective recruitment strategy is key to successfully hiring the right people to grow your brand. A good recruitment strategy will help you clearly define the role and identify the right talent and should include a structured process for filtering candidates and assessing their skills. A business manager is an ideal person to craft the hiring strategy.
When recruiting for specific roles, you should identify your core requirements and look for individuals with the necessary qualifications and experience.
Develop your recruitment approach, which includes carefully reviewing CVs, conducting interviews, and referencing contacts to ensure that only the best candidates are hired.
In addition, consider using psychometric tests or skills assessments when recruiting for specific positions. These tools can help indicate whether a candidate has the appropriate qualities for the role by measuring their cognitive ability, overall knowledge base, and other competencies.
Ultimately, having a clear understanding of your recruitment strategy and developing it in-house is essential to ensure that you hire the right people who will bring value to your organization.
It's essential to recognize the specific needs of a preferred position and invest in finding someone who can fulfill those needs.
By recognizing the skill sets of potential candidates, companies can bring in experts who know how to leverage modern technologies to improve their production processes.
This includes deciding what qualifications and experience this new hire should have and their potential impact on the brand's growth.
Creating a hiring strategy is no piece of the cake. It takes time and lots of planning. That's why your fashion business needs a business manager.
There are many benefits to hiring someone with a business management degree.
