Hiring for the short term is a trap business leaders can easily fall into. Faced with a human capital emergency, a need for bodies in position, the task of hiring becomes a fire drill. Hiring for the short term is ineffective for long term company growth.
Proverbs 20:29 says, “Do you see a man who is hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him.”
Making hasty hiring decisions as reactive decision causes ripples of consequences. Hiring slowly in times of emergency may seem counterproductive. The long-term sustainability of the business will be enhanced with this key concept in mind.
Whatever the pressing emergency in the business today consider how slowing down the hiring process may be a better choice for current and future success.
