Mike Dourgarian guest on “Insurance Matters” – employee selection using characteristics as a guide

In Mike’s recent return visit to “Insurance Matters” he focused on the use of matching the characteristics of an employment candidate to a real job.

He used the example of the hiring process for a truck driver.  All the techniques he described and demonstrated are applicable to other jobs any employer may have to fill.

Here are some highlights to Mike’s comments:

·         In addition to job descriptions, seek information on the characteristics for your job from your business or professional associations in your industry or profession

·         Rely upon other’s opinions within your organization when making your decision

·         Take time to think about how this role will help fulfill the mission of your organization

·         Multiple interviews with you and others in your organization may give you a clearer view of the “real” person you are considering

·         Take into account any physical requirements of the job you wish to fill

·         Use open ended questions in your chat with candidates
