Hiring the Right People

There are no “Little Blue Pills to Success” and that includes your hiring process, and there is no dot com “Only the Best People” solution online. The facts are, you must put in the work to get the results and nobody gets it right every time!

Growing your business requires additional staff and even the best interviewing process cannot guarantee a perfect fit. Often, it’s not the work that falls short of expectation, it’s the camaraderie between co-workers that never seem to meld as hoped. Let’s face it, the individuality that makes us great, is exactly what separates co-workers from being team mates.

“Anyone can fake a smile for an interview,
nobody can fake it for 90 days!” – KJr

The wrong hire can set you back harmful levels, a small business may not recover from a bad employee.

I HAVE GOOD NEWS!

There are ways to swing the hiring odds in your favor, here are some tips we use to ensure a good decision when on-boarding new team mates.

  1. Patience – most mistakes are made with quick reactions, that holds true for hiring too. Take time to research the individual and provide your business the best opportunity to be successful.

  2. Interview – have multiple managers interview the applicant, everyone will get a unique perspective of the candidate and provide valuable insight.

  3. Craig – stop using this guy’s list! The percentages of finding the “right fit” is very low on a P2P free website, use a quality paid service if you decide to explore online. You get what you pay for.

  4. Organization – are you seeking a very detailed and organized individual? Walk them to their car after the interview, you can learn a lot about someone from how they maintain their personal space (car).

  5. Social – do you review social media posts? 69% of Americans use social media, it’s another insight into the decision you are about to make.

  6. History – look at the reviews for previous employers, was your candidate involved in customer service during the timeframe of those reviews?

  7. Pray – if you pray, pray for the decision you’re about to make.

What is a Lenticular Wall Display?

Lenticular Wall Display

Lenticular printing is the process of merging multiple images to form a single image that has multiple messages, that are seen differently depending on the viewing angle.

Nelson, a design, architect and consulting firm, contacted Heritage for a unique lenticular wall display for their client. The signage would have “OUR INNOVATION AND CHANGE” from one angle of view and “FUELED BY OUR PEOPLE” by the opposite angle.

THE PROCESS

  • It began with the artwork, we had the client’s multiple pieces of art to edit and format into the single image.

  • The art was direct image printed to a PVC substrate. “Print and Stick” (printed on adhesive vinyl) was not an option on this project as the finished display would be ridged.

  • The board was routed, at precise intervals, to allow the substrate to fold to 45º angles, thus separating the single image into the view angles.

  • The display was folded to have hard crease lines and supported at each angle to ensure conformity and uniformity with pre-cut angle brackets from the same substrate.

  • The signage was then adhered to an additional “backing” substrate for more support and mounting integrity.

  • The display was delivered and installed in the client’s office as an inspirational and motivational display.
