A WIN FOR ALL INVOLVED
By replacing qualitative “gut feelings” with
quantitative data, hiring managers are able
to help organizations place the right peo-ple
in the right positions. Successfully
hiring talent using a scientific approach
offers both short-term and long-term ben-efits
for employees and employers alike.
Employees feel more secure in their role
and certain of their abilities to successful-ly
carry out the job while employers enjoy
the benefits of satisfied and motivated
staff. And they both see the long-term po-tential
of the fruitful relationship. ■

BY REPLACING QUALITATIVE “GUT
FEELINGS” WITH QUANTITATIVE DATA,
HIRING MANAGERS ARE ABLE TO HELP
ORGANIZATIONS PLACE THE RIGHT
PEOPLE IN THE RIGHT POSITIONS.
