Assessment-based prediction is an effective tool for hiring the right candidate

Undoubtedly, hiring should rate as being among the most important activities for an organization. This is so because it is through this process that the organization takes in its most important resource –people. At the time of hiring, as well as while considering promoting, HR and the other important decision makers need to make up their mind by asking critical questions with which to make predictions about a potential hire. These questions could relate to how well the resource can perform in the assigned role, for how long the resource could stay in the organization, and making an assessment about the person’s ability to handle more responsibilities.

Not all HR and other hiring managers could be right all the time in predicting the outcomes of their actions about a candidate; yet, a good understanding of principles of assessing the candidate, combined with proper preparation and inculcation of a little disciple will go a long way in helping them become more accurate in their predictions. When the hiring managers are not too way off their mark in predicting the attributes of a useful hire, they are more likely to get a better candidate and avoid much of the unpleasantness that a bad hire can cause.

Insights into getting the hiring and promoting process right

At this seminar, Harry will explore the use of standardized instruments in designing and using simulations for maximizing return on references. This is in addition to the most often-used selection tool, the pre-employment interview.

He will also discuss other important areas of the hiring process, like defensibility and avoiding complaints from unsuccessful applicants, ways of judging a candidate’s interpersonal skills, other capabilities and motivators, and other factors which determine whether there is a good fit between the individual, the position, and the organization.

In addition, Harry will also look at adding other selection tools such as testing and simulations (job samples) to the selection tool mix, which can greatly improve prediction accuracy and provide an alternative view of candidate skills, and techniques which improve the usefulness of reference information, including eliciting vital information from sometimes reluctant sources.

Harry will cover the following areas at this seminar:

  • The big-picture look at selection/promotion
  • How to analyze position and organizational requirements
  • Effective recruiting
  • Designing and using screening tools
  • How to design and conduct high-yield interviews
  • Adding testing and simulations to the selection toolbox
  • Avoiding legal problems
  • Maximizing return on reference inquiries
  • Putting it all together – designing a selection process.
