How to Attract and Retain the Best People



During one of my interviews, someone asked me about my biggest career mistakes. “That’s easy,” I said, “I have made the mistake of hiring the wrong person. It is an expensive error.” Since that early career mistake, I have developed a number of strategies and techniques to reduce my hiring errors. And that’s why I loved The Right Hire: Attract and Retain the Best People because the book shares many techniques to get the right person for the job. The book explains that hiring should be both part of the organizational strategy and strategic. I had the opportunity to speak with Lisette Howlett who has fifteen years of global change leadership and business development experience.
