October 20, 2015 | Ray Bixler, CEO, SkillSurvey | HCI

With a new wave of millennials entering the workforce, and the continued growth of the economy, the competition for quality talent is heating up.

Beyond Checking the Box: Transform Your Reference Checking to Drive Engagement

September 16, 2015 | Ray Bixler | HCI

When a process that involves people becomes thoughtless and perfunctory, it guarantees bad results. A case in point is reference checking. Organizations that consider reference checking to be a worthless, low-value activity get worthless, low-value feedback—or worse, no feedback at all—about potential new hires.

Hiring Right: Fine Tuning Your Recruiting Efforts to Avoid Mis-Hires

August 3, 2015 | Kevin Sheridan | HCI

The report card on hiring in North America is pretty poor and indicates that too many organizations are simply filling positions with “bodies,” as opposed to applying meticulous screening to avoid hiring the wrong people in the first place.  As revealed in my New York Times Best Seller, Building a Magnetic Culture, 59% of all new hires are gone before the one-year tenure mark.  As a result, these organizations encounter the significant costs of re-recruiting and re-hiring.
