Finding the right person to be the next team member at NogginLabs requires more than reviewing résumés and checking references. It calls for recruiting with creativity and balance. At NogginLabs, we look beyond the résumé to find the perfect match for our dynamic, award-winning eLearning team. We seek out individuals who share the values our company upholds. We have a team-based structure at NogginLabs, so our values are built around the idea of collaboration. In hiring someone new, we foremost make sure that person plays well with others.
WHO ARE YOU?
When someone interviews at NogginLabs, we don’t just ask, “What did you do in your last job?” or “What made you want to leave?” Your previous work experience is important, but it’s not, well, you. Who are you right now? Who do you want to be? What do you like to do outside of work, and why? Learning whether someone has traveled, climbed a mountain, or run a marathon can sometimes tell you more about a person than whether he or she achieved employee of the month. A triathlete, for example, might be highly task-oriented, which comes in handy during crunch time. A world traveler, hungry for new experiences, might jump at the chance to learn more about our clients.
Another important question we like to as is “How do you cope with obstacles?” Candidates must show us how they are flexible and how they react to change. Just as the eLearning we create for our clients is unique and customized, so too is our process for finding great talent.
So what exactly are the values that drive our hiring principles and teamwork ethics? We promote NogginLabs as “smart, nice and funny,” kinda in that order. Let’s take a look at what that means.
