A study from the Harvard Business Review found that 80% of employee turnover is due to bad hiring decisions, and 45% of bad hires are attributed to a lack of process. Some of the commonly used tips while recruiting are:
1. Team profiling– Define what you need more than what you want.
2. Future changes– Think long-term.
3. No haste– Invest time prior to the interview.
4. Flexibility– Keep an open mind.
5. Search for people, not robots– Hunt values along with skills.
While traditional basic best practices are useful while recruiting, you can take it to the next level by facilitating a Jigsaw Discovery Tool session for your team.
For instance, a Swedish multinational engineering company that is one of our clients selected this tool to aid its employees from various departments in better understanding their teams. They were able to excel at the team profiling stage and sail through the remaining stages of the hiring process thanks to the workshop. In addition to their prior hiring experiences, identifying their teams more effectively assists them in better bringing on the proper fit.
