Effortless HR

That’s why, when selecting a team, we advise using the same due diligence you use when you hire a new employee: Look at performance reviews and check references, not only from managers but from co-workers as well. Understand why applicants want to be part of the team, as well as how being on the team will help them realize their longer-term goals. “The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.” Everyone’s heard that expression.

Pre-Employment Testing: What to Expect

Criteria Corp

By using professionally developed, validated testing instruments you are adding objective, data-driven metrics to your hiring process. Some people who don’t test well may be great employees, and some that test well may be terrible employees. A good way to look at is this — no matter how well developed a test is, you should not try to outsource your hiring decisions to a testing company.

But a well designed, insightful survey starts those actions off much more effectively than can otherwise be the case.). .

HR's Role in Closing the "Capability Gap"

Achievers

Did you know that 19 million Americans plan to leave their jobs in 2013 ? Well, managers are a primary lever in inspiring employees to drive business results, but there are not enough tools available to develop them. Managers crave analytics which identify key metrics that help them understand activity within their own teams; ultimately helping them lead better and make insightful decisions faster.

Preparing for workforce growth in 2014

Strategic HCM

You’ll see this shift in the metrics we use as well. We also need to focus on time-to-hire as well. As well as being less complex to measure, time to recruit is also more comparable between organisations. It’s that time of the year again! Christmas advertisements and decorations are out and I’ve already seen a few other posts starting to give advice for 2014. Personally, I always try to avoid doing this, at least not until the start of the year.

9 Out of 10 Dentists Agree – Choose RPO

Cielo HR Leader

Are quantitative and qualitative metrics minimal? It’s been more than two years since you’ve visited the local dentistry. Like every sane individual on this planet, you hate dental appointments; how they recline you in that 1960’s vinyl chair chock full off scratch marks, how they poke and prod, and that horrendous bubble gum fluoride paste they bathe your mouth in during a cleaning. You didn’t visit the dentist because it was time for a cleaning, though.

The CIPD is leading - but in the wrong direction?

Strategic HCM

But these ways still aren’t well enough known. There’s still far too much belief that HR’s just about doing basic things well and that there’s nothing new in HR anyway. Well the fact that Peter Cheese spent 30 years at Accenture, promoting their systems, solutions and structured methodologies probably has something to do with it. Only one person in here mentioned science and one other metrics.

CIPD - Valuing Your Talent

Strategic HCM

It’s the same because it’s trying to do the same two things: Firstly, it’s attempting to define externally reportable metrics for things which are standard across all businesses. Well the two main issues with this are that A4P failed to reach any agreement on what these standards should be, and I’m not convinced that VyT will do any better. That’s the problem A4P found too - the more important the measure it, the less possible it is to make it into a metric !

RPO and Contingent Staffing: What’s the Difference?

Cielo HR Leader

I’m sure my potential employers would have liked answers to these questions as well. Although contingent staffing agencies can prove effective, the rapidness often means experience, quality of hire as well as hiring manager and candidate satisfaction are not be taken into account. They need to conduct background and reference checks, skill testing, as well as gauge personality, work style and cultural fit.

CIPD - Talent analytics and big data

Strategic HCM

Well I disagreed with this top-level focus, and I disagree with the detail in their new research report, ‘ Talent analytics and big data - the challenge for HR ’ as well. But just because it’s important, and we need to improve what we do in the area, doesn’t mean that we can loose sight of what’s even more important, and that we already do reasonably well! An excessive focus on metrics and analytics definitely does provide the potential of compromising our effectiveness.

Do we know how well we’re doing – in partnering and in delivering enhanced business results.
