How to Hire Top Performing Employees

Only one in four hires turns out to be a top performer, so how can you tilt the odds in your favor?

In his book “Topgrading,” Bradford D. Smart suggests a number of ways that you can improve your chances of hiring success.

  • Ditch vague job descriptions in favor of concrete expectations
  • Recruit from within your own network
  • Talented people can get laid off, so consider a “tryout” or temporary project to test out a candidate who is currently out of work
  • Go beyond resumes to check performance evaluations and accomplishments
  • Have job candidates arrange interviews with recent supervisors, if possible
  • Ask “competency” questions like “How did you improve your last organization, and how could you do that for us?”
