How To Avoid Hiring The Wrong Person
What Is The Cost Of Hiring The Wrong Person? You don’t want to find out. Instead, I recommend taking an investigative approach to interviewing.
For some ideas, please go to my 9th Commandment Of Recruiting video. at http://www.strategicsearch.com/technical-recruiting-tips/ and click on 9th (below) to view the video. The caveat is some technical positions are becoming scarcer due to increased demand. As a result, I recommend becoming even more thorough in your interviewing process to separate the wheat from the chaff. Include four investigative checks: a) criminal records b) civil records (e.g. bankruptcies) c) educational verification and d) detailed reference checks. This is the case because past behavior is the greatest predictor of future performance. As a result, you need to dig deep to uncover hidden problems and find the best possible candidates for your needs.
