Choosing the right people for the right project is crucial for any organization or even to manage a situation. There are two ways you can built your dream team for your organization.
This option i suitable for corporate business who already established their brand name in to the market and trying to accomplish or pursue their annual targets and milestone using industry experts to avoid the hassles. Corporate’s normally hire experts, pay them high and let them handle everything according to their job role.However, The pro’s have to deliver the results not only for stabilizing their position, it may affect their reputation as well. Therefore, PRO’s get paid high and deliver what they promised as per their agreement.
The risk level is to the organizations is very low, hence they hire with an agreement or a pre-arranged deal basis. Eg: Marketing Director with 5 Years Experience, Network Engineers with 5 Years Work + CCNA,RHCE Qualifications,etc.
If they delivered the results only they will be survive and getting promoted or getting some extra bonus from the organization to pursue their next milestone.
Hire school leavers and freshers, provide training and necessary resources to develop themself. Suitable for Startup Businesses! Most successful startup’s hire freshers those who know nothing about the industry and provide one on one coaching to train them well using strategies like creating Passion, Changing their Daily lifestyle, Attitude,workology and most importantly sharing their knowledge withe freshers.
But, comparing the first option, Hiring freshers is also a high risk for the startups! Because they have zero knowledge about the industry or even their job role. in this case we may have to spend lot of time to improve their skill level, passion, enthusiasm to make them better and stronger for pursue their future goal.
I would suggest you to NOT to spend too much of your time with freshers unless they are result oriented passionate people. Give them few task task related with their daily job activities with a deadline and help them to complete it accordingly to appraise their performance.
If the result is good, Pay them high with promotion and encourage them to go further! But, if they failed to accomplish their delegated task within the milestone, Then see the possibilities whether you can extend the milestone for another few days like giving another chance. Even, If they’ve failed then find-out the reason and try to help them to fix it! If the reason is something vague and miserable then it’s better to take a decision that is NOT gonna harm your company or even to the employee!
It’s my personal thoughts! I’m curious about to know your feedback in to this ?
