3 Tips How You Get Insight to Hire the Right Candidate?


Just one wrong hire can cost your organization up to three times the salary for the position.


The costs of a bad hire are huge, and studies reveal that as high as 46% of new hires are terminated, leave under pressure, or receive disciplinary action and negative reviews within their first 18 months on the job. 


Ask yourself this. How do you make sure you find people who are motivated (personality) in a given job and have the cognitive capacity (intelligence) to handle the complexity in the job; in short, a perfect person-job match!


By applying psychometric and cognitive assessments to your hiring process, you can identify the ideal candidate, match the applicants or candidates to the job profile / target, and secure the right fit. 


Because these tools are quick and easy to use, you can also save time and decrease the risk of losing great candidates because of a lengthy hiring process.


One of the global leaders in such assessments is the US-based Predictive Index. They have online tools to give you the confidence to find the right person and quickly while saving your company time and resources.
