The truth about performance & people
Redwood Advising is your hiring and workforce performance specialist founded by Eva Demandt. I help managers and HR professionals with limited time, resources or knowledge on how to hire for the best cultural fit and greatest performance.
When hiring, you are not ‘just’ filling a position. You are bringing a person into a team and a company with cultural characteristics, management style, way of working and business objectives to match. You must, therefore, find out if a candidate is able and willing to perform successfully in the specific position, team and company.
This is not an easy task. However, if you want to hire for the best cultural fit and greatest performance, three basis principles rooted in science and experience will enable you to do this:
- People perform from their strengths. Each person has inherited talents and undeveloped potential. Work is a great place to use and develop talents and potential.
- Very few people are only motivated by money. Most people need a reason beyond money to motivate them at work. Companies cannot expect great performance without offering people other forms of inspiration.
- People are motivated by different rewards, aspects of the work and the work environment. Great performance requires you find out what makes each person perform and stay motivated to perform.
Redwood Advising does not only make sure you hire for the best cultural fit and greatest performance. You are also provided with insights into how you can manage and coach your new hire to great performance in the future. Learn more about the services here:Learn more
