New business owners often have challenges delegating tasks and entrusting other people to help them. However, you can never go at it alone, a team is essential and choosing the right people to work with can make or break your business.
Here are some key questions to ask when interviewing potential employees:
Introductory Questions: Get to know your employee beyond just the accreditations that they have on their CV. Ask them questions about who they are outside of the work environment, get to know more about their passions and hobbies.
Career path questions: This will give you an insight into the candidate’s long-term and short-term goal.
Teamwork questions: Instead of just asking them a yes or no answer like ‘Can you work in a team’, rather ask them to share an experience where they’ve had to work in a team. Their answer will reveal their character and show you if the candidate is a leader, follow instructions and can meet deadlines. The characteristics revealed will tell you what kind of position the candidate will be suitable for.
Closing question: Give the candidate an opportunity to ask you questions as well. This will show you how much they know about you or your business. You’ll also be able to tell if they’re genuinely interested in the business and industry that you’re in.
