Does your salon need to hire more staff? More than ever, recruiting the ideal employee is incredibly important to achieve optimal productivity and realize business growth.

Before you go out there and just hire anyone, watch this video and read on to see how to approach hiring the perfect employee.

Hiring Mistakes

So many salon owners make this mistake. They just hire somebody who can cut and color hair. Let me ask you this, of the staff that you have, are there some people that are doing outstanding work and some who may not be performing up to par?

The answer is probably you have a little bit of both. How do you make sure that you get more of the type of people you want on your staff? How do you actually create more of them?

Well, we've created a tool called the Ideal Staff Avatar Creator for you to spend some time thinking about who you want to hire.

How to Use the Tool

Take a really good look at all the staff that you want to create clones and duplicates of. You want to have more people with their work ethic, their mindset, their willingness to get more education, and actually create a profile just like the people that you want more of inside your salon.

As you go to write your job posting, you want to think of that person and have them in mind. When you interview, you want to be interviewing for an individual who fits your ideal candidate profile. Then as you're screening and qualifying, you want to find that type of person.

If you want to go even one step further, have your top two or three staff members take personality assessments. There are tons of free ones online that are available.

Have your top staff take personality assessments, and then match those results with the new potential hires that you have, before you actually hire them.

Do me a favor right now and download that resource and make sure that your next hire is your best hire.
