Seek & employ: How to hire smart

By Paul Santiago

This is Episode 5 – Seek and Employ: How to find the right people to work with you. We’ll discuss where to look and how to choose. These are all from my experience so it might be different from what workshops taught you. You’re not going to want to miss this topic because this topic gave me these amazing and more importantly, it can make or break your company. That went dark real quick huh? Anyway, before I begin, let’s do the quotes for the day:

“Hiring the right people takes time, the right questions and a healthy dose of curiosity. What do you think is the most important factor when building your team? For us, it’s personality.”
— Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin Group

“People are not your most important asset. The right people are.”
– Jim Collins, book author & teacher

“Hiring people is an art, not a science, and resumes can’t tell you whether someone will fit into a company’s culture.”

  • Howard Schulz, Chairman & CEO of Starbucks

That’s right kids, don’t think that you can do this by yourself, people are a vital element to your success. And it all starts with, how important they are to you. Let’s talk about where to look for the right people and how to choose the perfect fit

QUICK TIP: Do the math, know your market and know how big you want to get. There’s a big difference between doing 30 weddings a year from doing 100.
Let’s talk about where to look:

  1. Friends
  2. Networking events/ Mixers
  3. Facebook wedding groups in your area

Where not to look… you just have to listen 😉

On hiring, always remember PECMI!

  1. Position you’re hiring for
  2. EQ and if it fits the company culture
  3. Coach-ability
  4. Mastery of the fundamentals
  5. Is he a team player?

Just take note, there’s no I in team, but there’s hire in hierarchy. Sorry, I didn’t know how to end this! HAAHHA Just hire smart!
