Rectangles are simple shapes. Easy to measure. Are your candidates a rectangle?
I have never met a hiring manager who said the jobs they were filling were simple. In fact, after a brief discussion about the range of performance demands in any job, factors regarding the complexity of the work emerge. And more complex work means more comprehensive requirements for knowledge, skills, and abilities. The breadth of competencies required to achieve superior performance expands. Recruiters know first hand the challenges of evaluating the complexity of job-fit. To optimize the insight gained from a candidate evaluation, it should mirror the complexity of the job. Multi-method pre-employment assessments can do just that.
Every executive knows the quality of a decision depends upon the data used to make the decision. Simple candidate evaluation tools may not provide the insights needed to increase hiring precision and raise the quality of hire. It may be time to look at your candidate experience.
Moving to an evidence-based hiring process takes time and cost out of your staffing process. Evidence-based hiring improves new hire retention and accelerates time to proficiency.
