HERO Recruitment: Mastering the Art of Hiring

"The secret to my success is that we've gone to exceptional lengths to hire the best people in the world." - Steve Jobs

While Donald Trump may preach the art of the deal, at HERO Recruitment, we are more focused on the art of the hire. In any industry, whether it's technology, tourism, television, or toy-making, the success or failure of your business largely depends on the individuals you choose to represent it. No matter how amazing your product is, your company will never surpass the quality of the people you have on board.

Steve Jobs understood this concept intuitively, and that's why Apple has become one of the largest and most renowned brands globally. Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin, also recognized the crucial significance of selecting employees carefully. "Hiring the right people takes time, the right questions, and a healthy dose of curiosity," he once observed. "For us, personality is the most important factor when building a team."

Choosing the wrong individuals is the quickest way to undermine a sustainable business. In fact, a bad hire can be more detrimental than making no hire at all. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, once stated, "I'd rather interview fifty people and not hire anyone than hire the wrong person."

The harsh reality is that a poor hiring decision can potentially cripple a good business. It's essential to choose wisely because the costs of making a mistake can be astronomical. Billionaire investor Warren Buffet said, "Somebody once said that in looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if you don't have the first, the other two will kill you."

With over three decades of experience in helping companies find the right talent for the right job, the team at HERO Recruitment is undoubtedly one of Ireland's leading experts in talent-spotting. But don't just take our word for it. We have been honored with numerous prestigious awards over the years, including the titles of "Agency of the Year" and "Best in Engineering, Science & Pharmaceuticals" at the esteemed National Recruitment Federation awards in November 2019.

"In Ireland, where everyone talks, companies must focus on ensuring a seamless and positive candidate experience," explains Roisin McNamara, Director of HERO. "It's a candidate market, so businesses need to differentiate themselves with compelling employer branding to attract top talent. Candidates now thoroughly research prospective employers, especially online, before even considering submitting a CV. At HERO, we are passionate about employer branding and helping companies become employers of choice.

"What message does your company convey to talent?"

That is the critical question HERO will assist you in answering.
