What is a Hiring Statement?

A Hiring Statement is a short, positive, non-discriminating statement about the employee characteristics needed to fulfill your Mission Statement.  It is both a benchmark and a constant reminder of the talent you need to succeed.  

Example #1:  We want drivers who are positive, even-tempered, safety conscious and who will provide friendly customer service.

Example #2:   We want creative problem solvers who will take ownership of their job responsibilities and who strive to improve themselves and the company.

Example #3:   We want salespeople who are resourceful, self-starters and who will build meaningful, long-term relationships.

A clear, non-discriminating Hiring Statement will help you reach your Mission Statement goals.  Additionally, it will improve your culture, employee engagement and retention.
