Taking the Madness Out of the Hiring Process

Posted at March 20, 2017 | By : | Categories : Career 1 Source News | Comments Off on Taking the Madness Out of the Hiring Process

It’s that time of the year, March Madness, where millions of American’s fill out their NCAA Basketball brackets and watch breathlessly round by round to see if their favorites move on or underdogs rise to the top. Some people complete their bracket on a whim, but many others put a lot of calculated effort into choosing their teams, pouring over statistics and other sources to make sure their choices are solid.

Hiring employees can be a lot like choosing teams for a bracket. Some choices are made more on instinct or a “gut feel.” Other employers desire more evidence and proof that their choices are as solid as possible.

What if there was a way to provide stronger statistical evidence to show the likelihood of a candidate working in a particular role? What if the hiring team could have input on what that candidate profile should look like? It would be like having ESPN rank each candidate with many of the pros and cons on each. No candidate is ever perfect, just as no NCAA team is guaranteed to win the National Championship, but having as much information in front of you to make a sound decision is beneficial to all involved.

Hopefully your hiring statistics are better than the success most of us have when filling out our brackets. If not, we have an arsenal of tools that can help you make more informed choices and continue to increase your ability to hire and retain the correct candidate.
