EFFECTIVE STAFF RECRUITMENT FOCUSES ON TALENTS FIRST BEFORE JOB TITLE AND DESCRIPTION.
It is poor managers who make the generalization that lower-level roles like housekeeping must be demoralizing, that virtually anyone possessing the right training could be proficient at it and that almost everyone would want to be promoted out of it as soon as possible. Great managers, on the other hand, realise that every person has a unique recurring thought pattern and feeling, a unique mental filter, that predisposes him to perform exceptionally at certain roles. So, effective staff recruitment for good managers means fixing the eyes on talent first.
Often times, we excel at roles, where we encounter challenges that embolden our strength rather than sap it away and where we are called to be creative and accountable, and to achieve something tangible on a daily basis.
From the perspective of great managers, every role has its own dimension and sublimeness, and excellent performance at any role warrants great respect. Their mindset of not looking down on any role props them up to appreciate the diversity of individual talents and engage in effective staff recruitment.
To select for the right talent, a competent manager, in an organisation that makes heroes out of those with the highest scores, engages people with the striving talent of competition; while his counterpart in another company emphasizing organisational values, sometimes connected to the community, goes for people with the striving talent of mission, people who must see the greater purpose of their efforts. Since the organisation honours those who live up to its values.
If you are a manager who prefers to set short-term goals, check in regularly with your subordinates to monitor structured progress, then, you need to recruit in people who desire structure and detail, and regular updates, a variation of thinking talent. Conversely, a manager who is inclined to set long-term goals and expect his staff to work with less supervision should lean towards people who exhibit the thinking talent of focus.
The relating talent of a stimulator, someone capable of providing a humorous relief to an effective team pervaded by undiluted seriousness is often helpful; likewise the relating talent of assertiveness for bringing issues to the surface among overly friendly team members.
