has been the wisest hiring decision I have ever taken”, said the Founder, @iamhelencarolina
Soon after our initial discussion, I predicted that the candidate required to be valued beyond just her academics and the experience.
She came with an M.Sc. in studies related to Plantation Spices Medicinal and Aromatic Crops, but she wanted to try us.
We couldn’t easily fit her into any role as she was a fresher with a graduation irrelevant to our service offerings. Yet, she wanted to try working for TAB.
She unveiled her skill to learn designs and brands. She showed her familiarity with today's commerce and her understanding of the market dynamics.
From what my 'Heart' had to say, I decided to allocate a place for her to be seated at our office. We offered her a brief role for her to explore who we are.
We talked about the intentions of the company while allowing her the time and space for us to measure some of the key soft skills like reliability, confidence and attitude.
In a few days, the team left a feedback about the ‘Positive Vibes Only’ zone she had created already.
The team recommended that we hired her, seeing her put her heart at work on top of anything else.
Today, we find Prageetha with rich sources of talent performing the role of a Branding Manager.
Trusting her involvement and potential, we created a role for her to help us build a stronger employer brand.
Primarily, the results have been amazing with our hiring decisions being strongly driven by Empathy, and then the competence.
Rather than have them attend the old-school interview, if they are allowed a possibility of knowing the values, people, culture and practices of the company, the affiliation between the employee and the employer can go a long way.
TAB recommends Employers choose a methodology of evaluating the potential of applicants by exploring a little time by working with each other.
Who knows how many Prageethas are still out there?
