Alistair Cox, CEO of Hays PLC has written an interesting article that supports the notion that you should start hiring people who are better than you.

In his article, Alistair says, “It will improve the internal perception of you as a hiring manager. Acting for the greater good of the organisation can bring huge kudos and personal gratification. It will challenge your perspectives and traditional ways of working and it frees you up to do the things you are good at.”

These are interesting and thoughtful perspectives and help us all to see the value in treating our employees and new recruits with authenticity at the same time as permitting them to excel.

Mindful recruitment and hiring people who are better than you could be at the core of the successful business of the future and if so, this should apply at all levels in the organisation.
