By profiling the team, we were able to identify the two elements that were missing, and our follow up workshop explained the issues.
Following the workshop, team members have been able to identify ways to work together better, and the business has integrated the Perfect Teams indicator into their recruitment process, so that they can hire their missing links.
HOW DO YOU RECRUIT THE RIGHT PEOPLE, AND HIRE THE MISSING LINK?
Turning to your recruitment of the missing links, we see two main avenues here, and we will now address both.
1) When you have a large volume of applications: Something our team has learned over years of working with CEOs and business owners, is to hire for attitude, and train for skills.
The question then comes, if you are hiring and need to deal with a huge volume of applications, you need an easy way to identify that missing element – the missing link. If you know what elements you are looking for, providing a Perfect Teams indicator would allow you to identify the most relevant candidates from the crowd.
2) When sourcing and headhunting: At the start of May, it was reported that UK job vacancies were at their highest for a year as lockdown restrictions started easing. Obviously this would depend on the industry, but as a general rule, in these circumstances you are more likely to use sourcing agents and headhunters to fill vacancies.
In that situation, the earlier you can identify the elements you are looking (and not looking) for, the better. In that case too, providing a Perfect Teams indicator would allow you to use any time you had, to source or headhunt, and speak to the most relevant candidates.
As Richard Branson has said, if you get the perfect mix of people working for your company, you have a far greater chance of success.
So, what is your missing link, and how are you going to recruit to fill the gaps and achieve that perfect mix? Perfect Teams identifies any missing links in your organisation, uncovers the hidden talents, and helps plug any gaps that exist.
