Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PETALUMA, Calif. - Jun 07, 2018 - People always have biases, whether they mean to or not. The important part is to take them into account and work around them to avoid unfair judgment based on bias, especially as a business owner when attempting to hire the best employees. Brandon Frere, president and CEO of Frere Enterprises, has some words of advice on how choosing the right employee can mean looking beyond age.
“Each individual has strengths and weaknesses developed over a lifetime, no matter how short or long,” says Frere. Age alone is not a defining characteristic and should not be used exclusively to decide if a potential employee would be a good fit for a company. A younger potential employee who has the appropriate skills should still be considered alongside a more experienced one. Unless the perfect employee happens along, training will still have to happen. Work rhythms will have to adjust to the one already in place in the business even if training is minimal. That being said, an older potential employee may have insight into a company’s inner workings that a younger applicant may not. The important part of deciding on a candidate is critical thinking about what the individual could provide after looking over their resume, and what they present if an interview if applicable.
Balance and thought are important for any large decision and can be doubly so for a small business. Taking the time to consider if biases are the strongest part of making a decision is important in making a fair decision, and one that is best for a business. “Making a snap decision based on minimal information can seem more efficient because it can save time, but the best decisions usually come about from lots of thought and consideration. Take the time to put that kind of effort into work, and perhaps in less obvious ways, it will come back to you,” says Frere.
