Hiring Quality Talent Is A Science

Posted September 26, 2017

Traditional hiring methodologies rely on unstructured interviews and simple question-answer conversations to find qualified candidates, but studies have shown that this type of interview doesn't do enough to fully filter the good candidates from the bad.

We believe in hiring quality talent through predictable, successful methods, which is why we use X-Factor instead of traditional hiring methods. Usually, recruiters spend an average of six seconds reviewing each resume, select their candidates, and proceed with interviews. With the help of XFactor, we do it differently.

We've studied the science behind hiring, and found that structured interviews and screening tools are the most efficient processes for methodical hiring, compared to those of traditional methods. In today's competitive, fast-paced business environment, there's no room for bad hires. According to studies, average costs to hire and train a new employee are estimated conservatively at two-and-a-half times the combined annual salary and benefits budgeted for the position. This is a significant figure, and one that companies like us are not willing to waste. That's why here at Nextaff, we believe in finding the best candidates the first time around.

Through XFactor's structured proprietary process using screening assessments and careful candidate analysis, we hire only quality talent, and only the best fit candidates make it through to the end of the process. We know that hiring quality talent is no longer a one-sided search on our part, and knowing where candidates fit within our company environment is a vital part of our process.

XFactor is changing the way that Nextaff and thousands of other employers hire their talent. Download our free whitepaper on "Perfecting The Perfect Hire" to learn more about our state of the art interview and hiring process!
