Depending on the business cycle stage, the skills and mindset of your team members will vary. For most companies, this stage is when it’s essential to have a variety of talent that can handle various tasks and responsibilities. This includes having individuals with a flexible mindset and a passion for learning. Having the perfect finance team can really help a company. 

  1. Be Authentic 

Almost everyone spends around a third of their livesworking. Unsurprisingly, many people leave their jobs due to a bad fit. According to a survey, 20.2% of workers quit their jobs due to a lack of fit. Most of the time, candidates will be unaware of your brand when they apply for a job at a mid-stage or early-stage company. This is why you must develop a clear value proposition that will resonate with them.

One of the most critical factors you should consider when hiring is transparency and authenticity. Before thinking about a candidate, you must establish a clear value proposition that will resonate with them. A common mistake employers make is hiding their company’s culture. This will only lead to employee dissatisfaction and resentment.

  1. Leverage Your Networks

One of the most underutilized ways to find talent is by leveraging the networks of your team members. Since nobody knows your company culture and skills better than you, being able to communicate directly with your team members can help you hire the best candidates. You may be a member of a couple of professional groups and Slack channels, and you’re likely connected with people in the same industry. These connections can be used to pass on job inquiries or referrals.

  1. Be Clear About The Skills You Want

Due to the rapid growth of early-to-mid-stage companies, finding the right people for the currently available roles is challenging. This is why, before you start considering candidates, you must understand the skills you need to succeed. A job description that clearly shows the key milestones the candidate should reach in the next 12 months will help the hiring manager think about the role. It will also help candidates understand how they would fit in with the broader finance team.

The constant change in the industry can create many new opportunities for new hires. To take advantage of these changes, you need people with a wide variety of skills and knowledge. In a situation like this, you need an experienced accounting manager responsible for managing a small team of accountants.  If you’re planning on transitioning from QuickBooks to a full-blown enterprise resource planning system in the next couple of months. It would help if you had people with extensive project management and people management skills.

Since your company has a few processes, you need candidates with a flexible attitude, proactive ideas, and the desire to create new practices. You can also identify potential candidates’ growth mindsets during the interview stage.
