The Power of Human Capital

Episode #72



Like the McGohan Brabender recruiting process, we looked internally for our next guest. Side Affects Producer, Kenzie Fell and Director of Growth, Anne Marie Singleton spoke with MB Recruiting Coordinator, Lauren Hemm to learn more about the interview and hiring process. When looking for a position, you may have the skills, but do you fit in with the company’s culture? Here at MB, we have been told our interview process is lengthy. We don’t hire people for their specific skill or to fill a specific spot. We test to see if they fit our culture of helping people. A four-round interview process is worth it to our Human Resources team. Tune in to hear Lauren’s tips for candidates, how she searches for potential employees and the kind of questions you should ask to get the full story.
