We’ll start with a 90-minute call to get to know you, your business, and your needs first and foremost. Together, we’ll set expectations for your hiring process by helping you determine what skills are non-negotiable, what it means to delegate, how much you are willing to train, and what kind of work environment you hope to create.
Our team will help align your brand values with your approach to hiring, and bring clarity to the type of leader you would like to become.
We’ll then craft a job ad that clearly defines the primary functions of the role, the proper job title, and the required skills and experience. We include language that invites people from diverse backgrounds, identities, and experience to apply to foster an inclusive process.
We’ll also build a customized application form for candidates that uses strategic language designed to help us determine the presence or absence of the soft skills you desire in a candidate.
Once you have reviewed and approved the job description and application form, we post the job across multiple websites. To ensure equity and diversity in your candidate pool, we partner with external organizations that specialize in job placement for folks of marginalized identities who would not typically have access to these types of job listings.
*We use the Kolbe assessment as a framework to understand whether someone is heavily detail oriented, process oriented, etc. This assessment helps ensure their work style is aligned with the requirements of the job, and can help minimize attrition. We don’t recommend requesting candidates to take this assessment prior to making a hiring decision– instead we recommend you use this as a management tool once you’re hired your employee.
Whew, the hard part is over! We’ll present you with our feedback on each of the candidates and give you everything you need to make a final decision. Once you’ve selected your top candidate, we will initiate the offer process before handing it over to you to make it official.
We’ll even notify all unselected candidates so you don’t have to.
Based on our assessment of the entire candidate pool, we will present you with approximately 5-10 applicants we believe should move onto the next round. Depending on the role and your desired level of involvement in this stage of the process, this may include follow up questions, interviews, or paid assessments.
We also offer coaching around how to identify and overcome unconscious biases during the interview process. Our goal is to promote a fair and just interview for all candidates, while empowering you to uphold your brand values.
Now that your new hire has been identified and the position has been offered, our work together is done. If you need assistance with establishing sound HR policies for your new team, we would be happy to point you in the right direction.
The goal of our process is to build a sustainable hiring process and a funnel of qualified applicants for the role your business needs. If, for any reason, your new hire doesn’t work out, you will have the tools and clarity you need to fill the role again in the future.
