3 Hiring Tips To Create a Positive Workplace with The Berndt Group

TBG Sponsored Partner Spotlight

This month we’re shining the spotlight on TBG, a SearchStax Alliance Partner that is celebrating its 30th year! 

In its three decades of generating digital excellence, the company has also created a workplace culture and reputation of positivity and growth. The company has never experienced layoffs or furloughs during its 30-year history, including in 2020. Last December, in the midst of a global pandemic, TBG was named a “Top Workplace” by the Baltimore Sun based on its own employee surveys and feedback. 

3 Hiring Tips for a Positive Work Culture

We’ve compiled three hiring tips from Michelle Géczy, TBG’s Chief Operating Officer, for creating a dynamic and positive work culture through the hiring process:  

Hire Character over Experience 

  • If a candidate is not engaged and you can’t see them easily fitting into the team or culture, it likely won’t work out. Look for a person’s greater potential. 

Trust Your Gut 

  • If something feels off, it usually is.  

Patience is Key 

  • If you rush to hire, it likely won’t produce the best results. Slowing down allows you to make an informed decision.
