When is selection truly expensive? If the candidate leaves in the end!
Workforce selection is usually a protracted, expensive and resource-consuming process. Ideally, new employees integrate quickly into the new work environment, where they can perform efficiently for a long time. This is mutually beneficial for both the employee and the employer.
This is why it is so disappointing, when a promising candidate’s work style or adaptive ablilty is not meet the expectations of the company. In such cases, the organization can improve the skills of its employee with significant ongoing training, lasting up to months, but often, unfortunately, there is no alternative but to terminate the employment relationship permanently. In a lucky case, during the probationary period.
After a significant loss of resources and material, the recruitment process can only begin again, hoping that the previous counterproductive fiasco will not repeat itself. Meanwhile, finding and replacing a suitable workforce is much more difficult than before. Experts say that replacing skilled workforce is already much harder than replacing intellectual workers! Such early fluctuation can be the biggest enemy of efficiency. Therefore, regardless of the organizational structure, it is important to better screen candidates to find those who may be suitable for the job during the recruitment process.
This can also be helped by knowing exactly the competencies and personality traits of an existing, well-proven workforce.
The efficiency and competitiveness of an organization is due to its active workforce. It can build it’s future on the secure potential of it’s workforce.
The common features of these outstanding employees are:
- tendency to continuous development, motivation
- flexibility, adaptability, integrity
- adaptive work style and consistent work pace
These are all measurable values, but it is important that they are only worth measuring together, holistically and objectively. The abilities, skills and personality traits of prospective and existing employees provide a reliable forecast of the extent of their expected performance. PractiWork®'s objective measurement method reveals strengths and weaknesses and makes training and development recommendations based on it.
Assess your well-proven employees based on their abilities, skills, and personality traits so you can also determine the profile you need to look for in the future.
