ONE of Mark’s LinkedIn posts has been generating some interest so thought to publish it on the eConsultant website due to the importance and value of the points highlighted:
When you hire, you could hire someone who can be trained, who will learn. Or you hire a ‘winner’ / a professional who delivers time after time – who knows how to cross the finish line… as you require.
If you don’t hire based on those 2 factors, what else can you do… well, all you can do is hope (and/or pray), isn’t that so?
Hope that the new hire works out; that’s all you’ve got isn’t it, these three options:
- Pay for a professional / ‘winner’ who delivers
- Train someone (who costs less to hire)
- Hope whoever you select works out
Good luck – or wiser to not rely on luck; contact an expert
