Job Matching

If the job could talk, what would it tell you?

Are you experiencing any of these problems?

  • High turnover
  • Low first-year staff retention
  • Poor performance by new-hires
  • Long training times, remediation needed after hiring
  • High absenteeism
  • Poor customer service
  • Cost of new-hire training above industry norms

According to many recruiters, hiring the wrong person costs an average of 250% of the position’s annual salary – now multiply that by the number of people you hire per year. That number is staggering for most businesses, and the Society for Human Resource Management puts it even higher: up to 500%!

What makes that number even more surprising is that most businesses suffer more than they have to. Common business hiring practices focus on three primary decision points: the resume, the interview, and the candidate’s past education. Combined and identified correctly, these three factors have a meager 35% chance of helping you pick the right candidate – barely better than 1 in 3! (Schmidt et al, 1998)

  • The candidate’s experience only becomes significant where both the job and the environment are nearly identical to previous work
  • Education is generally a poor predictor, except for those just entering the workforce
  • The interview is inherently biased by the personality and expectations of the interviewer

Instead, why not have the job tell you what it needs?

Every position has unique needs: skills, personal strengths, behavior factors, motivations. We have a proven process for discovering those needs and identifying those qualities in your top candidates, helping you choose the right person for the job.

Just some of the benefits:

  • Reduced turnover
  • Improved reputation as an employer
  • New-hires are up and running faster
  • Lower training cost per employee
  • Higher job satisfaction among your staff
