Are you also facing the same problem - 50% of our Recruitment efforts used to be a waste!

"Is your company easily Identifying the right talents?  With HR Technology- data backed objective methods of recruiting yields fast and highly accurate results at lower cost and efforts. We used to face the same problem before but no more now. We have adopted the HR tech method of recruiting, engaging and retaining our people. A great relief, saved us much costs and efforts". 

Many HR heads tell me how tough it is finding the Right person for the Right job. They say 50% of recruiting effort goes waste. Half the number of candidates selected turn out to be the wrong fit in their jobs. That has been my experience too over the last 25 years of my corporate and entrepreneurial experience both locally and internationally.

This is a lose - lose situation for both employers & employees alike.
The whole process of selecting “the right candidate for right job” is tough as primarily human mind is difficult to be read accurately. We have all experienced how a candidate evaluated as excellent in the interview performed unsatisfactorily in the job.
Many positions remain unfilled for fear of selecting a misfit. But businesses cannot go on by avoidance or fear of making mistakes.
The Selection process is one of the most important tasks any hiring manager will undertake. A bad decision will not only affect him/her directly, but may also have repercussions throughout the organization

Possible impacts are:

  • Impacting the departments. daily operations

  • Critically undermining team’s ability to achieve annual goals and objectives

  • Creating havoc with Company’s tactical and strategic directives

  • Leads to irritated coworkers, low morale, and additional training time

This famous statement by Super CEO Jack Welch on People vs Strategy nails the argument on which has greater significance. He says a great strategy will be reduced to mediocre if implemented by average people whereas an average strategy will become great when handled by a great team of people – Right people in the Right jobs. Do you agree?
