In this episode, we were joined by Marlowe Duran, Senior Talent Business Partner at Trainual. We had a great chat about finding the right folks to join your team and make a real difference. We talked about how to put together job descriptions that catch the eye, come up with interview questions that really dig deep, and streamline the recruitment process so it's not a headache. Plus, Marlowe shared some awesome advice on how smaller, leaner businesses can nail the hiring game without needing to break the bank.

Key takeaways:

  • We covered using a values-based hiring process that evaluates candidates through behavioral questions and job auditions to assess alignment with your core company values.
  • The importance of being authentic and transparent about your culture, environment, and opportunities for impact was emphasized - as this is often more appealing to top talent than compensation alone.
  • For smaller businesses with limited resources, leveraging employee referrals, crafting job descriptions that highlight your personality, and openly discussing challenges can help attract strong fits.
  • Rather than seeking the "perfect" candidate, we discussed focusing on overall skills and values alignment. No one is perfect, but providing training can set the right hire up for success.
  • Proper onboarding with resources, coaching, and clear expectations set with the new hire's manager are critical for supporting and retaining top performers long-term.
