There are two premises behind this webinar: 1) hiring is broken or at least “sub-optimal”, and 2) science can fix it. Both are easily demonstrated with facts and with extensive even exhaustive experience and studies.
Hiring should be a process of matching the right people to the right jobs. It should provide the employer with workers who have the innate qualities to perform at high levels and therefore contribute to the organization’s goals and it should provide the candidate with a job, or career, that will draw upon that person’s innate qualities and enable her/him to be high performing, engaged, fulfilled, rewarded. These objectives are met by today’s hiring practices with scandalous rarity.
It’s not that employers and jobseekers don’t try. Major search engines see well over 100 million searches for “job” per month. At least 50 million jobs are posted on job boards each year. Companies spend over $50 billion a year simply on posting and advertising jobs and anywhere from $500 to hundreds of thousands of dollars to hire the right person. The average cost-per-hire for new university graduates in 2011, for example, was over $5000.
Not only time and money are invested. New technologies meant to improve hiring results proliferate. Social media approaches become highly touted – you are meant to feel a luddite if your jobs aren’t tweeted and the buzz about your jobs not top-of-mind on Facebook. Are the technologies and the social media channels improving the outcomes? As this webinar will demonstrate, not much.
The solution is science. The science of psychometrics generates a much better result, a much higher performing employee, than any other approach. The evidence is compelling, the results conclusive.
The speaker's audio was not suitable for webcast/audio...hopefully better for an in-person session. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to hear more on this topic from another speaker.
