How to hire people with a Growth Mindset?

Right now, it is more mission-critical than anything else for businesses to pursue growth. That is why companies can no longer afford to hire people with mediocre mindsets with stagnant growth prospects. With the right resources consistent with its mission, any company can achieve its desired growth. Choosing the candidates with their sights on long-term career development can be the trick to finding the right recruits for the company. Different companies use different tricks for hiring their employees, each of their methods is consistent with what their companies need. Knowing the company’s needs is the first step to hiring the right people.

How to find and evaluate people with a growth mindset?

Every company has some university-specific target when it comes to hiring. This type of mindset acts as a barrier to hiring, as any graduate with a high CGPA prioritizes their self-branding more than their commitments to any company. Therefore, the first step should be to keep the university background and CGPA aside from the evaluation and focus on the profile analysis. The initial screening should be prioritized and regardless of how urgent the screening process is, each step should be taken care of properly. During any point of the recruitment process, a role-play should be conducted to analyze their real-time responses. Tracing their line of thinking and identifying a candidate’s personality is crucial.

How do they create an impact in an organization?

Employees with a growth mindset are always improving as well as working towards growing the company. Their line of thinking revolves around the loop of developing themselves to help grow the company that in turn will benefit them with additional incentives. This symbiotic relationship between the employees and their companies can only result from a growth mindset.

How to retain these people?

Some simple formulas are used for retaining employees in the long term. One of the existing methods is, showing the career path to the new recruits. By showing how far they can grow and connecting all the benefits and incentives with that growth shows a more positive attitude among fresh recruits. RnR also known as Roles and Responsibilities is an effectively tested long-term employee retention method. Proper mentorship paired with effective communication is also another method that can result in high employee retention. A proper combination of short-term and long-term benefits can provide additional incentives for employees to stay. With the right brand image, the company has a higher chance of retaining employees in the long term.
