Talent Acquisition is the critical process of finding, assessing and acquiring talent to bring into the organization to fill specific roles to meet the company’s goals. It also includes the essential onboarding process once the hire is made. Research shows that employees decide in the first 6 months on the job whether they have made the right decision to join your company. We have all heard the many numbers that describe the financial consequences of a poor hire which include recruiting costs, lost productivity, poor performance and morale. No organization can afford to make a bad hire or lose that hire before the organizational benefits are realized.
Smart companies use all means at their disposal to improve their talent acquisition practices and today that includes behavioral assessments. The Predictive Index® System takes the guesswork out of the selection process by defining the behavioral requirements of the job and identifying the natural behavioral drives of the candidate. This allows for a fit/gap analysis between the job profile and the personality profile of the candidate. This information also provides key insights into the candidate’s training and coaching needs to support the onboarding process.
