Hiring the wrong person can be costly

Blog located in Assessments, Hiring & Employment posted on January 20, 2016

A bad hire can hit a company’s bottom line hard, but the biggest concern employers have when hiring a bad fit is the toll it takes on employee morale. The average cost of a poor hiring decision is 30% of the employee’s annual salary.

Only 10% of a Person Can Be Seen During an Interview

Business owners and hiring managers are biased by many factors which impact the quality of the information. Assessments provide you with in-depth, objective, comprehensive and reliable information about people; far beyond what you could uncover through typical interviews. A job fit assessment like the ProfileXT® can help you determine how well a prospective employee fits a particular job in your company. Job-fit assessments are typically based on performance indicators, behavioral traits, interests and aptitudes. Managers often hire people because they’re hard-workers. This can be useless if their aptitudes and interests don’t match the requirements of a particular job. Use assessments to help you keep a narrow focus on the job requirements before considering more general personality traits.
