Hiring is a headache
Lost in the crowd
You don’t know how to stand out from all the other business advertising similar roles or what to do to attract your ideal candidate.
You want great people who share your values, have initiative and a real desire to be a part of your team doing the kind of work you need them to do.
You definitely don’t want to just ‘hire someone’.
Stuck with status quo
The way you’ve recruited before has been frustrating and painful. Either you just don’t get any of the right people applying or finding someone who’s ‘ok’ is a soul-destroying experience.
It’s expensive admin.
You’ve tired recruiters too and you didn’t get what you thought you would.
You wish there was a better way.
Gallup estimate it costs $3,400 for every $10,000 in salary when an employee is disengaged. Their most recent survey found that 80% of employees are disengaged!!!
You’ve know how painful and expensive it is to get it wrong, you’ve been there.
You need the new people who join your team to be a culture fit, to be engaged and to make a real contribution.

The 5 Hiring Hero Principles
Attract your ideal candidate, turn your recruitment process into an asset, hire for engagement from day one.
Understand the truth about the employment relationship, what employee engagement really is and the pivotal role the recruitment process plays.
Get crystal clear on the value you’re offering and asking for (tangible and intangible). Without this you’ll struggle to attract the ideal candidate.
Package all the value in a way that it can be recognised for what it is, brings your brand to life and engages great candidates emotionally.
Deliver a candidate expreience that’s on brand and gives a preview of the culture and employment relationship. Actions speak louder than words.
When the new person joins the team it is transformed. With a plan this can be a positive change for all and the new person will be able to contribute quickly.
