Everyone knows that the most crucial challenge in skin care is staffing. Business owners and managers need to consider the enormous impact that hiring decisions have on the long-term financial success of a commercial operation today, tomorrow and in years to come. Ask anyone who owns or operates an esthetic facility, and they will tell you that it is not easy to recruit the best people in this profession.

Finding a pearl

Most individuals charged with recruiting believe that it is extremely difficult to pinpoint instantly who the top job candidates are from a sea of self-proclaimed “A-list” talent, all of whom profess to be the best fit for the job. Due to the far-reaching effects of corporate downsizing, massive layoffs and the current economic environment, a new pool of intelligent high-wage earners is available to consider. However, although a candidate may interview well, the person may have very limited expertise, further complicating the hiring issue.

Clearly, no one in business these days can afford to hire unqualified professionals who become unproductive and unprofitable. New hires also have both an internal influence on pre-existing staff and an external influence on clients. The ability to identify candidates who communicate well and work collaboratively with others in the business enterprise is an important, non-negotiable skill for recruiters engaged in hiring only the best and the brightest.
