According to the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM), the cost of making a bad hire could be as much as five times their annual salary. Add to that the potential for a hit on morale, lost customers, and the increased workload for everyone around the poor hire, and it’s clear that recruiting professionals need to do everything they can to help businesses avoid hiring mistakes.
Common problems that lead to a mismatched hire include confusing the job description with the criteria for success, the difficulty in pushing hiring managers to consider candidates from different backgrounds to an existing team, and the temptation to hire candidates who are close – but not close enough – to the right fit.
Recruiting professionals can help address all of these issues by using more nuanced screening and effective interviewing. Tailored questions and active listening can help businesses to understand their real needs and to select candidates whose skillsets and approach will be a good fit.
In this webinar, we’ll talk through some of the tools and approaches that recruiters can use to help businesses make good hiring choices. In particular you’ll learn more about:
- Which screening questions don’t work – and the questions you should be using
- How to use active listening and enthusiastic promotion of your company brand to sell your company to the right hires
- Practical steps you can take to improve opportunities to identify and recruit great hires
