Your success profile should look at potential new hires in 3 ways: experience, fit, and impact. When you have a success profile in place, you have an ideal picture to compare your new candidates to, and you’re able to approach the interview process in a way that helps you find people who move your organization forward.
Your success profile will be the groundwork for filling any role on your team. Think of a role within your organization that needs to be filled now, or will need to be filled in the future, and use this fitness plan to build a success profile that will help you create a better talent pipeline.
A success profile is a description or picture of the ideal person you want to fill a role on your team. It is the foundation for a successful talent pipeline. Unlike a job description, that describes the duties required or experience needed, a success profile describes the human needed for the role.
Your success profile will serve as a starting point and a guide when filling an open role. This gives you a very clear target to aim for, instead of relying on your gut instinct or experiences from past employees when hiring a new person.
