Companies grow when employees have a strong work ethic! However, companies often hire employees with a lousy work ethic.
There are several steps to help you hire employees who have strong work ethic plus avoid hiring lazy employees.
Previously, we discussed:
1st STEP = REVIEW APPLICATION OR RESUME for WORK ETHIC CLUES
2nd STEP = 10-15 MINUTE, FAST PHONE INTERVIEW
3rd Step = PERSONALITY + INTELLIGENCE TESTS
4TH STEP = IN-DEPTH INTERVIEW
Let’s discuss Step #5
5TH STEP = REFERENCE CHECKS, REALISTIC JOB OBSERVATION, & WORK SIMULATIONS
When done thoroughly, these prediction methods give you extra insights into whether you might want to hire or not-hire the applicant.
SUMMARY OF HOW YOU CAN HIRE APPLICANTS WHO HAVE GOOD WORK ETHIC
Employees with good work ethic aim to help you improve your company’s productivity and profits.
So, carefully evaluate applicants, focusing on
* Job-related experiences
* Pre-employment personality and intelligence tests,
compared to your company’s best employees’ test scores
* In-depth interview
* Other prediction methods
Using custom-tailored pre-employment test benchmark scores and other methods, you can forecast which applicants may possess strong work ethic. They can become highly productive, low-turnover employees who help you grow your business.
