4 Steps to a High-Performance Recruitment System

Finding and keeping qualified talent has never been more challenging or expensive. Too many companies implement haphazard hiring methods that are not only inefficient, but also potentially illegal.

Are people hired systematically at your organization? Does Human Resources (HR) know what they are doing?

The best companies in the world use sophisticated processes to find and hire new workers. If you don’t have a solid system in place to hire workers, consider creating policies, and putting them in writing, that outline your process in detail.

Partnership To Prosper Christian Business Via First-Class HR Systems

via PR Newswire

In HIS Name HR LLC Partners with Faith Driven Business Entrepreneur Network

Mark A. Griffin joins the Faith Driven Business Entrepreneur Network as a human resources expert, contributing content, support and expertise derived from his 25 years at Merck, Quaker Oats, and Kodak corporations.

“We are so excited to have Mark on board to help our subscribers take their organizations to the next level,” Steve Hoeft, founder of Faith Driven Business Entrepreneur Network and FaithDrivenBusiness.com, says. “We know Mark will help prosper these organizations to levels they’ve never imagined.”

In HIS Name HR supports many Christian-owned organizations and Griffin is keen to bring his expertise to assist subscribers of the Faith Driven Network. He knows what works and what does not work, and, most important, he sees the world through the employee’s perspective. He believes in treating everyone with dignity and respect, because, as he explains, employees are a company’s family.

“When I launched our firm three years ago,” Mark Griffin says, “I hadn’t foreseen the degree to which we would transform the businesses we serve by guiding leadership to embrace Christian principles. When the changes we implemented, for example, resulted in one of our clients nearly doubling their sales, growing from $5 to 9 million, they credited that success to In HIS Name HR, saying we were responsible for their explosive growth. The human resources decisions we help organizations make definitely have an impact.”

They provide the latest social media tips and secrets to sustain a business—and the faith of its leaders—through the inevitable struggles, and triumph.

Performance Arrogance Brings Everyone Down

Ecclesiastes 5:6

Do not let your mouth lead you into sin. And do not protest to the temple messenger, “My vow was a mistake.” Why should God be angry at what you say and destroy the work of your hands?

Have you ever watched one of your best employees produce excellent results and then ruin it all with their arrogance? Have you ever witnessed a senior executive deliver a passionate speech that rocked your world but, at the end, credit themselves and not their teams? If you have, you will know how bad they look and how unfortunate it is that their hard work and dedication was just overshadowed by their arrogance and self-love.

Give credit to the Team, not yourself

The workplace can be challenging in the sense that we are to perform, and that performance is typically measured and reviewed. But that measurement and level of deliverance is between you and your superior, not between you and the entire company!

No one likes a braggart, so if you keep your performance results to performance discussions, and if you are managing your teams to do the same, you are building a “Kingdom Minded” Organization

Help our community of readers

How do you give credit to your employees? Are there some simplistic tools you have used in the past? Let us know. We love to learn new ideas.

CLA Guest Post- Making Your Performance Management System Work

Poor employee performance can kill an organization. Low productivity, incompetence, and unneeded expenses are the last thing you want at any time, particularly in today’s tough economy.

After decades of work in the field of business and human resources, I know that few things upgrade and energize an organization like a solid Performance Management System. A performance management system incorporates your organization’s annual goals and objectives to create the structure and accountability by which an employee can accomplish these goals and objectives and, more importantly, improve their lives. Only the highest-performing organizations make the performance review process a valued, appreciated, and eagerly anticipated system for the both organization and its employees.

Instead, what usually happens?

CLA Guest Post- 5 Mistakes Organizations Make When Establishing Core Values

Today, we build on the two previous posts, on creating Mission and Vision Statements by discussing Core Values and creating your organization’s Value Statement, which completes the triad.

When organizations desire to perform at the highest level, they leverage three (3) commitments—three commitments that set the stage for overall efficiency, growth, and prosperity.

• Mission Statement

• Vision Statement

• Core Values Statement

Core Values focus on how you run your organization and interact with customers and suppliers. Not everyone possesses the same core values, so it’s important for an organization to stress what theirs are to employees, vendors, and customers at the onset of hiring, doing business, or providing a service.

CLA Guest Post- 3 Mistakes in High-Performance Vision Statements

Today, we’ll look at the 3 biggest mistakes commonly made by organizations during the creation of their Vision Statement.

As discussed in the last postOrganizations wanting to perform at the highest level do so by working to leverage 3 commitments. These commitments set the stage for overall efficiency, growth, and prosperity.

Great leaders vision-cast for their organization.

They have an idea of where they want their organization to be down the road. They chart their desired course ahead of time. The best leaders will map out their Vision, put this Vision on paper, and share their Vision with the entire crew. However, too many leaders fail to be precise—they don’t follow a top-notch process to ensure their Vision truly comes to fruition.
