If Your Selection Process Isn’t Working, Tweak It

We’ve all heard the definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.  If you believe the way you’ve hired in the past gives you as much confidence as rolling dice, why wouldn’t you do something different in hopes of increasing your odds?

Many leaders have a process to yield excellent results and prevent weak, or worse, disastrous hires.  It is important to tweak your process from time to time to accommodate various needs.  That may include using a search firm to source candidates who are then run through your process, adding an additional round of interviews, moving assessments up in the process, or doing a much longer phone interview before flying a candidate into town.

The bottom line is, you need an evolving process – not just a particular kind of interview, or use of an assessment.  A process that yields certain results and allows for adjustments when necessary.  Don’t throw out an entire process, but critically look at what seems to be working well and where it could be improved.

Empower your hiring managers to make the right hiring decisions by giving them a process that works.
