How to Hire Right … The First Time
Studies show that most managers make a hiring decision within 10 minutes of meeting a candidate and spend the rest of their time gathering information to support that decision. As a result, managers often hire people that interview well, look good on paper and can talk the talk. Those positive initial impressions don’t always prove reliable once it’s time to actually walk the walk and you can end up wondering “Who are you and what have you done with the person I interviewed just a few short weeks ago.”
“My team rocks! We’re not wasting valuable time in the search, we now quickly identify those candidates who both qualify and have the right motivation to be a member of my outstanding team. Ginny Hegarty’s process and assessments shine a light on so many of the details that I have missed when hiring in the past. Since using Ginny’s system we have been picking winners!” Dr. Keith Ogawa, Oregon
Did you know that 30% of new hires start looking for their next job after just 30 days? Or that 46% of new hires will fail within the first eighteen months? Turnover is expensive and will set you and your team back while chipping away at team morale too.
Your people are your practice’s best competitive advantage and that reality is truer today in the current economic environment than ever before. Realizing just how critical talent acquisition is to your practice success, it’s time to raise the bar on the recruitment process and implement a system and process that supports both the practice and team success.
