Hiring Wisdom: Make Sure You Don’t Let the Great Ones Get Away

Unemployment is coming down and, even if it weren’t, great employees always have their choice of employers.

Case in point: I got some great service at a restaurant in the Indianapolis airport the other day. Molly was over the top.

I took a moment to ask her if she liked working at the airport. She told me she had moved to town three weeks earlier and had started the job just a week ago.

She must have made a great first impression, like she did with me, every place she applied because she said she had three other offers, but this one was the first to get back to her.

Usually, it is not difficult to identify the great “A” players; it is the “B’s” and “C’s” that are tough to weed out. If you do have an “A” player apply, move fast!
