In it, Marinilli advisers managers on how to approach the issue truthfully and tactfully with both current employees and potential new hires.
Marinilli highlights the key points of the article in his blog, offering advice gathered directly from his experience hiring sales representatives. Massachusetts-based professional sales recruitment firm Target Consulting has over 13 years of experience as a permanent job placement agency. New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts companies have all found successful interview candidates and new hires through Target's in-depth screening and recruiting process.
Marinilli stresses the importance of being upfront and honest about why you are downsizing with all parties involved. Current employees need to know in what direction the company is moving, and what that means for them, whether you are shifting the focus of your company or venturing in a new direction. Interview candidates want to be reassured that they are entering into a stable and successful work environment.
In either case, a selective hiring policy will save you valuable time and money. When hiring sales representatives while downsizing, Marinilli advocates a thorough pre-screening process that ensures you spend time interviewing only the most qualified applicants.
