New hires must produce results – not just interview well!
The need for results oriented professionals who are able to execute and perform at the levels for which they were hired is one of the biggest discussions around our client’s corporate boardrooms today.
The marketplace is changing at a speed very few of us could have imagined just 10 years ago. However, one thing has stayed constant – the need to get the hire right!
Assessment tools must show an ROI that impacts the bottom line!
There are a myriad of assessment tools out on the market today to assist hiring teams in better understanding a candidates ability to be successful in the role they are being interviewed for. The question is – “what are the assessment tools assessing in these candidates and will the results of these assessments make a difference in the bottom line of an organization?”
For the past 26 years I have been involved in the Human Capital marketplace and worked with all levels of clients throughout North America. I made a strategic decision in 2002 to leave my partnership in a large Human Capital firm to start Hire Results Ltd because I saw so many of our clients struggling to make the right hire – even with the use of online assessment tools. My idea was a simple one. Why not allow clients and candidates to move past the interview and get into the key elements of the job – as if they were working together. What we experienced immediately were clients reducing their emotional hiring decisions and using logic and structure to better understand candidate’s capabilities for the specific role they were applying for. Since those first Simulation Assessment back in 2002 until now we have honed our process, developed innovative delivery software tools, streamlined our scoring process and experience client after client making profitable hiring decisions.
The traditional hiring process had to change!
At Hire Results, we continue to break new ground with our clients by helping them to observe and assess candidates in Simulation Assessments. Traditional hiring processes needed to be changed – we changed them by allowing clients to see candidates in action – as if they are on the job today! The end results are reflected on our clients’ bottom line, through the acquisition of new employees who are positively impacting their business. In many instances these results are produced by candidates who typically would have been passed over due to the candidates not being a “good interviewers”. Interview skills have very little to do with a candidates ability to execute on the job!
One of the most gratifying results we have seen from the beginning of our company is the impact our Hiring Simulation Assessment process has had on candidates in their decision making process. We have always counted the cost to organizations when they make a hiring mistake but what about the candidate(s)? A company can typically absorb the cost of a bad hire but to a candidate this mistake impacts their whole family.
