When we’re building teams, recruiting top talent is important - but so is finding people who fit seamlessly into our company’s culture. Does that mean we should be looking to hire like-minded people like our friends? What do we do if we find our recruits aren’t reflecting the qualities we would like to see?
On this episode, top producer at the number one team in Indianapolis, Meighan Wise shares how we can build our dream teams.
Takeaways + Tactics
Be wary of hiring friends. We may have a lot in common with them socially, but that doesn’t mean they’re the best fit for our company’s culture.
Be what we want to attract. If our agents aren’t shaping up, we need to look at ourselves and see what we’re doing to attract the wrong recruits.
Make culture a priority when hiring. Our current agents should never feel that they need to change their behavior to get along with new recruits.
At the start of the episode, Meighan Wise shared how she got her team started. She explained how she started hiring team members organically, and how she decided who to hire first.
We also learned:
- Why hiring a full-time admin can do wonders for our businesses
- How to use the time we gain back when we hire recruits
- The importance of offering our agents value
Hiring people who fit into our team’s culture is vital for success. It’s important that we hire great cultural fits, because we should aim to create an environment where everyone is happy to come into the office. In some cases, that may end up disqualifying people who are close to us socially, as we need to prioritize our teams and keep our current agents in mind when we hire new recruits. We also have to exhibit the qualities we’re looking for in our agents - we are what we attract.
