Not all employees are created equal. Research shows that “A” players outsell their peers by at least 48 percent in sales positions, have a more positive effect on customers than other employees, and deliver superior team performance when included in a work group. A small team of “A” players can run circles around a giant team of “B” and “C” players.
Identifying great candidates usually starts with an impressive resume, but that only provides part of the story. To gain more insight into a candidate’s past performance, a scientifically valid, objective assessment is needed to provide a fuller picture. Hiring managers can greatly improve the odds of hiring “A” players by using scientifically validated surveys created by industrial psychologists, to help screen potential applicants. By discovering what previous managers and colleagues openly say about a candidate’s strengths, weaknesses and behaviors, “A” players can be selected 90 percent of the time!
