how to attract and select those who can build the right corporate culture from the beginning? On this issue we consulted Cancialosi.
founder hire employees for an existing corporate culture?
you should be well aware of your values. Sit back and say to yourself, "that’s what I want to do, and that’s what’s really important to me, and it’s the company’s foundation." These questions are very important, everyone should first identify them, but few people do so. As a founder, before you build a team, you have to determine what is right".
what qualities are most valuable among early employees
I firmly believe that attitude is higher than experience. You can train your employees’ business skills, but you can’t train them to have the right attitude and values. We have a rigorous five step recruitment screening process, each employee must go through this link. What we are looking for is some special qualities, in this process, the candidate will feel very hard, so those who are not really interested in joining us will automatically out. We evaluate intangible qualities and values that cannot be seen from the resume.
is the diversity of employee characteristics important?
One of the mistakes that
founders often make is to find employees who look like themselves. Although this is helpful for building a unified model of behavior, the negative impact is that you will always look at the problem from the same point of view, so that they have the possibility of a huge risk. Hiring people with different views will help you reduce your risk.
