Do you - does anybody - have the luxury of waiting 3 to 6
months to determine whether you made a quality hire? By the time
you've realized that you've made a mistake, you've not just wasted
time, resources and money...chances are you failed to glean
insights that can be systematically applied to improve your
predictive ability across the organization.
HRMC Acclaim, our automated interviewing platform, is built on
the premise that it's the quality of the hiring
process that ultimately determines the quality of the
hire. By refining how candidates are engaged, questioned,
challenged and assessed, organizations are better able to
systematically hire top performers.
In evaluating the quality of your hiring process, ask yourself
- Are you relying on resumes rather than more revealing,
real-time interactions which address attitudes, competencies, and
skills, indicating whether a candidate can do the job to be done
and how well that person will perform within a particular
environment (i.e., culture fit)?
- Does your screening process eliminate bias and the halo
effect...does it facilitate disciplined, job specific applicant
discovery? Does it score everything that leads to job success
or merely rely on your intuitions and recollections?
- Do you know what you are looking for before you begin the
search and can you program your hiring system to identify
candidates that fit your criteria?
- Does your process/system facilitate compliance with EEO and
employment laws, which can be assimilated and documented to assure

facilitates true QofH.
These days, no organization can afford to wait three to six
months it takes to assess the quality of its hires. A more
proactive approach that focuses on your hiring processes -- and a
continual refinement of these -processes - actually embeds quality
of hire principles and naturally leads to better quality
