Hire on a Whim: The Four Qualities That Make for Great Employees

Hire on a Whim: The Four Qualities That Make for Great Employees


What are the four nonnegotiable, nonteachable qualities that you must hire?

Can you be sure, really sure, that the person you are about to hire is the one? 

We've all experienced that feeling of buyer's remorse when what we thought we "needed" isn't as fabulous as we thought it would be. Many managers have a similar feeling, "hire's remorse," after they extend an offer to a prospective employee and get that small but unmistakable twinge in the gut.

Hiring for a new position doesn't have to be this way. Hire on a WHIM breaks down the essentials, not of whom to hire, but what to hire. What makes these four qualities essential is that no matter how great a manager you are, these are attributes you can't teach. As one expert put it, "These essentials are part of a candidate's DNA; they either have them, or they don't."

So, before you make that job offer, be sure your future employee has what it takes to be hired on a WHIM.
