Performance-based Hiring. (Lou Adler)
Hiring the best starts by defining the real work involved, not skills or experiences, but the challenges and critical deliverables expected of a top performer. This is converted into compelling advertising, optimized to be found and acted upon. Well positioned, career-oriented advertising and strong networking capabilities allow a company to dramatically increase the number of top people seen. The performance-based interviewing process involves digging deep into a prospect’s background, looking for comparable accomplishments as well as career gaps and learning opportunities. This sets the stage for recruiting and closing – presenting the job as a career opportunity, not a lateral transfer focused on bidding up short-term compensation.
Well-trained recruiters and hiring managers working as a team is an essential aspect of hiring top performers on a consistent basis. Lou’s performance-based Hiring training programs provide recruiters and hiring managers alike the skills they need to find, assess, and hire more top performers.
A Recruiters Reality Check, From Candidates. (Ben Gahlsdorf)
So many companies and recruiting professionals talk about candidate experience, career sites, interview best practices, best-in-class onboarding and more. Here's a chance to hear from 5 recently hired employees who were just candidates on their take about these and other relevant recruiting-related topics.
Curious about why someone will reply to one InMail but not another? Or what kind of research is being done on your interview team and company? Ben Gahlsdorf, recruiting lead from New Relic will moderate a do-not-miss panel and open-ended questions from you!
