Hiring the right people – Above 50% and you’re doing great
Hiring the right people is frustratingly difficult. The number of dimensions on which there needs to be a fit are large. Some can be tested prior to making a decision, but others, like character traits, are difficult to judge until the candidate has already become an employee and is embedded in the team. Hiring decisions are critically important for productivity in knowledge organisations. However, the sourcing and selection process is often sub-optimal, leading to a low hit-rate and lost potential.
This month’s InFocus features a refreshing look at the hiring process. In her paper, Physicist Dr. Helena Pleinert of Pleinert & Partner, a specialist partner of Humatica in the area of recruiting process optimisation, shows how a more systematic approach increases the hit-rate.
Humatica would also like to take this opportunity to thank its clients and partners for another successful year of growth. We wish you a Merry Christmas and good start in the new year.
