Metrics, analytics, and big data loom large on the HR radar. However, research shows that objective data play a surprisingly small role in one of the linchpin functions of HR departments—employee selection. HR practitioners remain unaware of which selection methods are most (and least) predictive, and only 14 percent of organizations have data to show the business impact of their assessment strategy.
With payroll and benefits representing one of the largest line items on virtually every company’s operating statement, effective selection is perhaps HR’s greatest opportunity to significantly affect the bottom line. It’s time for organizations to put hiring under the microscope. In this webcast, the presenter will share five steps for creating more evidence-based, scientific, and effective selection processes. You will:

  • Discover what hiring methods have the highest predictive validity.
  • Discuss what measures and methods will yield the highest return on investment for your organization.
  • Learn what criteria to consider when selecting an assessment instrument.
