Every startup company wants to gather the best pool of talents who will be the backbone of their operations, but the talent for acquisition is what really matters. Measuring someone else’s productivity, much more that of a number of employees with varied capacities, is indeed a pretty huge task. Nevertheless, it is always a rewarding one if you know what to do and where to look.

Bear in mind that in the history of entrepreneurship, some startups even began with only two people before growing to be a company of thousands. The acquisition of the right hires all begins on how well you know your own startup programs and which candidates you need.

Do they fit?

First of all, look for talent who can fit well in your office culture. Most businesses regard to skill and experience as the most significant factors in hiring new employees but fail to consider how each can behave or react within the confines of a new office. Office culture vastly contributes to the success of your employees and it can lessen the instances of attrition while avoiding the loss of great talent.  

Are they looking for the same thing you are?

With Millennials and Generation Z now dominating the global workforce, you should also be aware of the fact that it’s much harder to look for potential candidates for your vacancies as more and more are trying to venture on their own startup companies and freelance services. Today’s new crop of professionals even ventures into co-working spaces rather than the traditional office set-up. Knowing your hires a bit personally can help you adjust to how they want to work and grow with your company while allowing little room for resignations.    

What’s their background?

As economic and business trends continue to evolve, so should you adjust to how you acquire new hires for your company. Meticulously review through your candidate’s list of training and experience so you know how you can help develop them in the future. By appreciating their technical and practical knowledge, you help them reach their full potential and investing in your employees through workshops and seminars most often lead to a win-win situation and gives you the leverage to place them in the company positions you want to fill in.

What’s their experience? Will it contribute greatly to your startup?
