Factors Predicting Successful Hires Boosted by Consultant
In a recent article for Recruiting Trends Bulletin, LaCivita says his company’s research shows that a successful relationship was predicated on four major factors in this particular order:
- Cultural Fit – Alignment to the corporate value structure and personality of the organization.
- Capabilities – Demonstrated capacity to effectively perform an activity without previously experiencing it.
- Achievement Record – Rising slope in career development in congruence with smart career decisions.
- Skills & Experience – Practiced performance and working knowledge of a specific activity.
LaCivita suggests that employers design their recruitment process to achieve better results by 1) knowing who you seek and how to evaluate them, and 2) maximizing the quantity and quality of relevant candidate information. To truly confirm whether an individual aligns to the company’s culture, identify the specifics that make the culture unique as well as accompanying questions that elicit definitive information, he recommends.
