We’ve all hired a candidate who didn’t live up to expectations. They had the right experience, solid qualifications, good references and performed well at interview, but ultimately failed to deliver. Perhaps they left quickly, leaving you with the cost of recruitment, or worse, are still hanging on, costing you daily in lost productivity and low team morale.
Employees who ‘fit’ your business culture as well as they ‘fit’ the role they were hired to do, are more engaged and more likely to be retained. Measuring the ‘fit’ of a candidate will tell you whether a new hire is likely to perform in your organisation, help you avoid unnecessary recruitment costs (caused by attrition) and boost business performance.
People assessment from Thomas can help you to accurately predict whether a candidate is a good ‘fit’ for your business. Our tools can help you identify the behavioural requirements of the job you are recruiting for and match this with the right candidates, giving your recruitment decision a greater level of certainty.
