Avoiding Bad Hires - Systems & Tools for Effective Hiring
Experts estimate that poor performing employees cost US companies over $100 billion annually. But finding the perfect fit between position and applicant can be a time-consuming, costly and imperfect task. When you consider that up to 70% of candidates lie on their resumes or in interviews, you can see why it's important to have an accurate and efficient selection process.
So how do you avoid bad hires? Research has shown that no one tool is enough to really predict employee performance effectively. You need a system's approach; a collection of appropriate tools, to ensure you make the best decisions at every stage of the hiring process. More importantly, how you integrate these tools and apply them throughout the selection process will have a dramatic impact on hiring success.
