Are You Recruiting the Wrong Candidates?
Streamline Your Hiring Process with Assessments
It happens to the best of us. You take the time to recruit and interview potential candidates, hire who you think is the best person for the job role, and for one reason or another, that person becomes an ex-employee. You’re left wondering where it all went wrong…
The reality is, a resume can only tell you so much about a candidate. And while college admissions can ask for report cards, businesses need a different way to evaluate the intelligence and the personality of applicants. Using assessments as part of your hiring process allows you to thoroughly evaluate candidates on characteristics most important to your open position.
A personality assessment is designed to measure certain personality traits that can be important predictors of successful job performance. It’s possible that someone or several people on your team already encompasses all these traits. Benchmarking incoming applicants against the best people on your team is an easy way to find others who have the same or similar personality traits and are more likely to contribute to your business the way your current A-team does.
Comprehensive personality assessments can be a great asset in determining culture fit. Hiring managers can measure key competencies – such as teamwork, integrity, and conscientiousness – that thrive in their agency. Current top performers can also take these assessments to benchmark against candidates. Hiring the right people can start with administering personality assessments to all candidates.
