The hiring process is disruptive and time-consuming. There aren’t enough good people out there, and how the heck do you pick the right person, anyway? Here’s the recipe for a painless, vigorous, and effective hiring process, created by the authors of "Who: The A Method for Hiring."
I had a conversation some time back with Caleb Brown of New Planner Recruiting on the frequent irony of the advisor who seeks to hire "A-Players," but only pays "B" or "C" wages or runs a B or C shop. The usual refrain is either, “There just aren’t any good candidates out there,” or “It’s got to be the low unemployment rate!”
