People are the most important assets of any organization, so hiring and supervising represent an investment in the future of a company. The success of a hire is determined largely by the quality of the match between the person and the organization. Consequently, the recruiting process needs to start with understanding the organizational identity: What is its mission? What are its values? Is the business more mission-driven or culture-driven? What is the nature of the organizational culture? For recruiting, just as important as delineating the needed skillset is describing the desired fit in terms of mission, values, and culture. Skillset and identify fit should then drive the interviewing process. Effective supervision requires continuous and multifaceted communication, time to meaningfully connect on personal levels, shared brainstorming and problem solving, quality professional development, and individual mentoring over an extended period.
