A recent article in TIME magazine looks at what it’s like to get a job or fill a job in “the age of optimized hiring.” That’s a huge topic, but the article focuses on personality assessments (though it refers to them more generally as tests or questions).

The article asks: “Do you trust data more than your instincts?”

More than 2/3 of top companies use pre-hire assessments.

See how this trend is transforming talent acquisition, thanks to a new Aberdeen report.

Best-In-Class companies are top performers, and experts in talent acquisition. They outperform competitors in the market because they hire the right people—the most suitable, most skilled, and most culturally appropriate for their company.

Which makes sense.

“Hiring is one of the most important aspect that leads to the success or failure of any business,” the report says.

Think about that. You might have an ingenious new business model, or an exceptional product, but your entire operation is in the hands of the people you hire. When you cut corners, you limit your growth. You settle for less. When you hire the right people, you give your company best potential for success.

So what does it take to get it right?

You have to be savvy about talent acquisition, and approach it as you would any business venture: define success and be purposeful in your plan of action.

For 71% of Best-In-Class companies, pre-hire assessments are a fundamental part of the hiring strategy. With the help of pre-hire assessments, these companies have boosted employee retention, satisfaction, and engagement—significantly. Enough to report “incredible return on investment.”

Our clients say the same thing. But don’t take our word for it. See for yourself how pre-hire assessments naturally translate into lower cost, lower turnover, and higher profit per employee.

When people leave a company, they need to be replaced. This isn’t news, in fact this is a practice that has to happen as a means of survival. The process by which a person is selected to fill a position speaks to how prepared a company is for the ongoing cycle of employee replacement. Since the need to replace employees will always exist, implementing a program that focuses on long-term outcomes makes the most sense.

Download Article

Replacement Planning is something that most companies practice as a way to identify a “back-up” to fill a role when it becomes available. Past experiences and performance are taken into account, upholding the idea that by looking at a person’s past behaviors, you choose the best candidate to fill the vacant spot. Replacement planning is the bare minimum of what every company should be doing to prepare for employee turnover.

Long-term focused, Succession Planning works to prepare a group of current employees for the roles they’ll take over in the future. Unlike Replacement Planning, rather than simply choosing a person who at the time may be the best choice, Succession Planning goes the extra step by developing employees in a way that grooms them to be successful. This practice uses competency models to align sought-after work-related behaviors with a company’s specific mission and strategy, ensuring that whoever is chosen to fill a spot is going to be the best fit for that role specifically within that company.

Succession Planning is a beneficial practice for a number of reasons including increasing bench strength, increasing the chance of internal opportunities for current employees, and having a clear and focused vision for your company’s future.
