Making the wrong hire for any position in your business is bad, but making the wrong hire for an executive position can be disastrous. When small and mid-sized businesses — especially those in growth mode — need to hire, they may be treading into uncharted waters, if they’ve never hired for the C-suite before.

Businesses can struggle to fill that C-level position effectively—especially if companies haven’t laid the groundwork for what the business needs.

In this episode, podcast host James Hornick and Hirewell partner Jeff Smith discuss:

  • Identifying the real business need for hiring the CXO
  •  Deciding which qualities and experiences are most critical for addressing the challenge
  • Integrating a new position into the organization
