For the best opportunity to achieve hiring success, look for who first and what second. Who is about the person, their alignment to your organization’s values, and what motivates them. What is about their knowledge, skills and abilities.
If you focus on the who first, you’ll get the whole human. It will be clear from the start if they are the right fit. You’ll be familiar with what they can do and how well, from initial conversations and interviews. Honing in on who they are will ensure a lasting and fruitful hire.
