Find the Right Employee With the Right Questions

Your small business is growing, and you are in an enviable position; you need to add an employee or two. Hiring a new employee is tough, and hiring the right employee is even tougher.

That potential employee’s passion and commitment to your company are key. You want someone who cares about helping your company, and sees its success as part of his or hers. Weed out the wrong ones and hire the right one by creating interview questions that focus on values, not just skills and responsibilities. Skills can be taught, but you can’t change someone’s values
