Effective interview processes to meet your business goals
Business leaders require a 20% improvement in employee performance to meet business goals, but new hire performance is stagnant.
Recruiting is not contributing to that goal, with new hire performance remaining steady since 2009. The pressure has never been greater. Ambitious profitable growth goals have executives demanding a discontinuous jump in workforce performance and productivity. Listen to our webinar to;
- Accurately predict job performance
- Get more out of your interview in less time
- Gain a structured behavioral interview process which is 14% more likely to predict a candidate's potential for success than traditional interviews.
Unlock Potential by Ensuring Employees are Well Matched to Their Jobs
According to hiring managers, 1 in 5 new hires are "bad" or a "regretted decision". Unlock potential by ensuring employees are well matched to their jobs and your organisational culture through your recruitment process.
The new hire’s level of ability is only half of the equation; his or her fit is just as important. A Candidate’s cognitive ability is very important, but when people leave organisations it’s often because they just don’t fit the culture. Virtually all recruiting departments believe fit is important for new hires to succeed.
According to the results published in the CEB SHL Global Assessment Trends Report: :
- 62% of organisations worldwide are using or planning to use formal culture fit assessments for candidates, up from 52% in 2009
- New hires who report a positive candidate experience apply 15% more discretionary effort and are 38% more likely to stay with the organisation.
Your recruitment process is an opportunity to provide a compelling candidate experience, as well as provide you with insight into candidate fit.

Drawing from over a decade’s worth of analysis and research, CEB insights will change the way you think about Sales in your business.

With 1 in 4 graduates are likely to leave their employer within 12 months – are you confident that your graduate programmes are delivering?
Listen to the recording of our recent webinar on how data-driven decisions will help you transform the ROI on your graduate recruitment programmes.
Achieving effective alignment of talent with organizational strategy

In a recent survey CEOs identified talent as the increasingly critical differentiator of corporate performance—so much so that they are personally prioritizing talent pipeline management as much as they are customer interaction.
This webinar session will reveal which combination of motivations and behaviors are found in people who are likely to succeed at the next level, and how you can apply a predictive and actionable model of high-potential within your organization.
Hear about a current example of what one company is doing to make their HIPO program a success.
Graduate Series - Avoiding the Vicious Circle in Graduate Recruitment

Learn about a practical model for looking at the employability of graduates, how the segmentation of graduate talent will help you and why the premium you are paying for graduate talent is probably too high.

Leading HR leaders know that using objective talent measurement is the best way to predict success in the job – while at the same time driving the bottom-line results that warm many a CXO’s heart.
