This Is About Relationships

Hiring staff can be frightening. As a manger you are looking for a certain type of experience in your best candidate yet need to be sure that your new hire is going to be compatible with your existing staff. When I served as Vice President of University Relations at The Catholic University of America, I reached out to the Woolbright Group for help.

Cynthia Woolbright excelled in writing position descriptions, planning searches, reviewing resumes, conducting comprehensive interviews, allowing for peer review and evaluations, and thoroughly checking references. With this due diligence, we were far more likely to hire the right person for both our needs and for our organization.

We all remember starting that new position and wondering how our first day would unfold. It can be unnerving for any new hire. When I was hiring, I also asked for Cynthia’s help in the on-boarding process. I was totally impressed with the comprehensive and caring way in which she nurtured our new staff. Her well planned new-employee orientation put our new colleagues at ease from the very start. She was able to rid us if those unnerving days for new staff.
