Scientific Approaches to Finding Quality Talent

Posted October 22, 2019

Anyone who has done any kind of hiring or recruitment knows that hiring quality talent is a time consuming and arduous task. The long hours of sifting through resumes and conducting interviews can feel fruitless when you're looking for the right candidate. Often times, the more traditional methods of hiring are not reliable or predictable methods for finding quality talent. This has led to a magnitude of research into the subject and has resulted in several methods that have resulted in greater success in the hiring process.

Why is Hiring Quality Talent So Difficult?

Recent studies suggest that the most common reason employees fail after they are hired is due to a lack of culture fit. Candidates may have the skills relevant to a job and the experience to back it up but may lack the most important aspect of the workplace: the culture. Traditional interviews may help an employer discover whether or not a potential candidate has relevant skills and experience, but may fail to determine if a candidate will fit into the work culture. However, proper planning, conduct, and evaluation during interviews will not only vastly improve the success of interviews but will increase the quality of new hires as well.

 

How Hiring for Culture Fit Attracts Quality Talent

Research shows that companies or organizations that hire for culture fit see significant improvements in employee metrics such as:

  • Job Satisfaction
  • Job Performance
  • Employee Retention
  • Commitment to the Organization

 

Technology has vastly improved the process for recruiters, making it much easier to find and hire quality talent. Researchers have been developing methods to help employers sort through their candidates in more effective ways. Evaluations such as skill tests, integrity tests, and even personality tests have been refined and perfected to help recruiters find their perfect candidate.
