The title of this guide, which seeks to be a reference, may seem a tad pretentious… And yet, it keeps its promise! In eleven pages, it manages to review each step of recruiting, from anticipating needs to the first six months of the new recruit. Worrying about recruiting in times of crisis is seldom a priority for most of us. Yet, human capital is what helps business organizations weather turbulent times, in particular through innovation and agility, if these rare pearls can be located!

This synthetic guide has the advantage of benchmarking our mistakes and bad habits to best practices. It is an invaluable resource for managers who conduct recruiting interviews and want to improve their chances of selecting, attracting and retaining the best applicants. It provides clear answers to the dilemmas with which we are frequently confronted. For example, we may be tempted to multiply interviews with various participants, to gather the most opinions possible. The author recommends conversely that one stick to just three interviews: one with the direct superior of the future employee, one with the boss’s boss, and one with the person in charge of Human Resources.

He also recommends assessing ourselves as recruiters: Of the people you have recruited, how many are still in place or have been promoted five years down the road? If you succeed 50% of the time, you’re in line with the average; but by implementing the author’s practical recommendations, you could aim for 70%!

A small guide to keep handy if you want to put all the odds on your side to find exceptional recruits!
