Hiring for Attitude


Target Those That Are “A Pleasure to Manage”

When your company is looking to hire new employees they should be looking for not only a new hire to fill the position but for a new hire that will respect a manager’s already limited time. Hiring managers should be intentionally focusing on hiring top performers who won’t require a lot of the manager’s time. Our author, Dr. John Sullivan, call these potential new hires “a pleasure to manage employees” because they act in such a way that it literally makes them a pleasure to manage. This white paper reviews how the hiring manager can determine these types of new hires and implement this into their process right away and discusses the 12 behaviors that managers can find in these types of employees.
