There’s been a ton of studies done on employees and employers. Everyone is trying to find that magic sweet spot. This can be especially difficult for small businesses who really don’t have to time and resources to make meaningful employee searches. Many businesses, large and small fall into the dreaded category of hiring people on personality alone. It’s easy, we’ve all seen it and we’ve all been there.
Have you ever visited an establishment and found that everyone in the office pretty much looked the same, spoke the same and thought the same? If you were really observant, you probably noted that the homogeneity resulted in major blind spots for that business. They didn’t realize the errors they were making. Diverse employees bring new ways of looking at the world and solving problems. Without it, stagnation can quickly occur. In fact, it can be difficult for a small business or any business to grow if they are not constantly looking for employees that think outside of the box and rewarding their current employees for their efforts and contributions too.
This can be fixed with just one degree of separation. A contract head-hunter can find talent based on qualifications and not just personality. A contract head hunter can create that space between the employer and the potential employee that is needed to allow new and innovative candidates into your hiring pool.
In fact, if you are on the hunt for a job yourself or even a career change, sometimes having someone who can look for opportunities for you can be well worth the trouble. It may get you out of the rut of applying to similar places. Or perhaps you are immigrating to the US or you are a new immigrant and need help finding new opportunities that fit your skills and background. Have a different pair of eyes to look at what the world has to offer you might be just what you are looking for…
