The single, biggest hiring challenge that companies large and small face today is finding the right person with the right skills for the right position. Hiring based on education, past experience, and common benchmarks isn’t sufficient, which is clearly reflected in the retention challenge many organizations continue to battle with.
Rather than using generic industry or stereotypical benchmarks that your competitor uses; customize your benchmarks to accurately identify what is best for your organization’s ultimate success. This will help you attract the most qualified candidates and prepare you to match the candidate’s strengths to the job requirements.
Remember, your organization operates best when the right people are in the right positions and are doing the right things. Putting a system in place to attract and hire the best will help you avoid costly turnover and set yourself up for building stronger, long-lasting teams within your organization.
