Hiring the right person for a specific position is one of the biggest challenges in today's business environment. Acclaimed Author/Researcher Jim Collins presented convincing evidence that supports this challenge in his seminal book "Good to Great" that the most important component of building and sustaining a "high performance organization" is the ability to "get the right people on the bus … get the wrong people off the bus and get the right people in the right seat"
IT Services Engaged Search Consultants knows that having a selection and hiring process in place reduces turnover and increases the productivity and success of employees whose skills and abilities "fit" with the job they are hired to do. The Harvard School of Business reports the following research findings on recruitment and selection success:
By performing an interview only, you have a 26% success rate of employing your new hire for more than a year.
Reference checking increases your odds to approximately 43%.
Testing / assessment escalates your success to 75%.
