Why is there such a high degree of frustration by hiring managers regarding the hiring process?
Our research with thousands of companies has shown us that very few hiring managers are taught how to hire top talent.
The 8 Top Hiring Frustrations
Most of the methods companies use to attract candidates bring those who are floating near the surface aggressively looking for a new job.
Most Job Descriptions are Worthless as a tool for predicting future success! Most job descriptions define nothing more than minimum, average, and mediocre standards. If the goal is to hire top talent, then you must define the expectations of top talent.
The vast majority of the 50,000 executives and managers we've presented to over the last 2 decades believe that almost all candidates embellish and exaggerate what they've accomplished or what they think they can achieve.
In most companies, the hiring process is predicated on how each individual manager decides to apply it. Who knows what goes on behind the door as the hiring manager starts their interview?
Even though a candidate may have all the required qualifications, failure may occur sometimes since they cannot adapt to your unique culture.
Typical evaluations of candidates after an interview are filled with ambiguity, superficial statements, platitudes, and generalizations.
One of the greatest hiring frustrations is to fall victim to making a 1st Impression judgment and then spending the remainder of the interview justifying it!
Over the past 25 years, the Partners of IMPACT Hiring Solutions, Brad Remillard and Barry Deutsch, have presented their workshop, You're Not the Person I Hired, to over 50,000 managers and executives.
