Molly McGrath: Becoming Part of the Great Employee Restoration

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Molly McGrath discuss:

  • Hiring right and hiring legal leaders. 
  • Changing your interview process to focus less on the resume and more on the human interaction. 
  • Giving time, attention, and feedback in real-time. 
  • Investing in personal and professional growth to attract and retain team members. 


Key Takeaways:

  • You are hiring human beings, not human doings. Employees and team members are wanting purpose and reason in their job. 
  • When hiring, it should be a hard yes or a hard no. If it is a maybe, you are trying to convince yourself. 
  • You will know within 30 days if someone is a good fit or not. 
  • The #1 thing people want is connection and collaboration. Automations are great, but don’t forget about the soft skills and the people aspect of managing your team. 


“I really am very passionate about transforming the great employee resignation and quiet quitting into the great employee restoration.” —  Molly McGrath
