A recent study of Google’s recruitment policies showed that their standard procedure of promoting their best technical people into management roles was often not the right thing to do.
It reminded me of my practising days in law firms. I only worked in one large law firm but saw the same mistake made their time and time again.
Often the best fee earner then became the manager of a team, yet had no management skills to speak of. The fall out that followed always made me chuckle. A good technician does not necessarily a good manager make.
I know for a lot of solicitors that recruitment is a huge issue. Whereas it used to be a case of placing one advertisement in the Gazette and then sitting back and waiting, the market isn’t working like that any longer.
With recruitment consultants just throwing CV’s across your desk half of the time, that often isn’t the answer either.
However, I have come up with a cunning plan, as Baldrick used to say in Blackadder, but unlike his plans which usually failed, this one actually works.
I have created a simple, free strategy to get your perfect staff coming to you whenever you have a vacancy. It is the lead article in this month’s printed Marketing4Solicitors circular, which is being posted out this Thursday.
If you join before that deadline, you can read all about it, then use it to attract the right staff to your firm.
