Seems like an odd question but one that most small employers don't ask themselves often enough. Building a team has much more value to your organization than just filling a blank spot with a new employee. It does take planning and a strategic approach however to accomplish this. First we need to review the functions that need to be accomplished in our company and build job descriptions and employee profiles or required traits. It is advised to use DISC profiles to identify traits of current valued staff members that may need to be augmented, duplicated or replaced later to help your selection process. Profiles are also a way to define a good mix of team attributes to ensure a balanced approach to team development. It is helpful not to just hire the type of person you seem attracted to hire (which is natural) but to consider types of candidates that in fact balance out you team better with skill sets and communication styles that are currently missing.
