As you drive around the great state of Texas you find so much beauty, it’s a wonderful place to live. But when you’re enjoying all that Texas has to offer it’s difficult to look past one glaring issues that we’re seeing pop up everywhere and that has to do with businesses needing more employees. It’s something that many businesses are struggling with and that is employee retention. So, what should hiring managers be looking for when trying to add employees?

One of my most fun days at work was a few years ago when I was able to connect with someone I think is very intelligent and that is financial expert, Dave Ramsey. While I don’t agree with 100% of everything that he says, I think that most things make sense and can truly help people as they work to become debt free. While I was on the call with him, he opened the call to anyone with questions and of course I couldn’t keep quiet. 

What Did I Ask Dave Ramsey? 

When I finally got my turn to ask him a question I didn’t ask about debt, I asked about employee retention. My question to Dave was, “What qualities to do you look for in an interview to ensure that you’re hiring the right candidate?”  

Dave’s Answer For Me 

After a brief pause, Dave responded with, “You should look for 3 qualities. Are they hungry, humble, and smart?” He said if they have those qualities then you want them on your team but it’s up to you to figure out if they are all of those things. 

It’s a conversation that I will remember for the rest of my life, and I appreciate all the wisdom he shared on that one-hour call with us. If you’re looking for a new job, good luck. If you’re in charge of hiring, I hope you find the perfect candidate to fill the positions you’re needing filled.

Here are some of those factors
