Why you should define your teams strengths and weaknesses before recruiting a new team member

When a staff member resigns most managers immediately jump into finding a replacement. Often this process is left until the last minute, therefore the recruitment process is rushed to meet the deadline. As the saying goes, “Hire in haste, repent in leisure.”

We advise our clients to do some recruitment pre-work, even before a team member resigns and you need a replacement. This way you are not operating under time pressure and have time to plan what you need in the search for the best possible person. This video covers why doing just that, identifying your teams’ current strengths and weaknesses, is such an important step.
