Baseball is like recruiting. Every seasoned expert knows how to achieve success and the obvious traits of great performers. Or do they? Moneyball, the Michael Lewis bestseller and latest Brad Pitt film, shows that the experts do get it wrong - or, at least, there are better, more reliable ways to learn and understand the secrets of success in baseball.
Similarly in recruiting, there are better and more reliable ways to recruit, manage talent, and place the right people in the right jobs. The "moneyball" of recruiting is the art and science of winning an unfair game. Science and analytics can and do result in a greater likelihood of recruiting the right people into the jobs they will perform at top levels. These have also been proven to identify the most likely high quality hires and to generate the most compelling return on investment.
Through serious research, validated science, and tested and proven processes, you can identify high-quality hires right from the beginning of the hiring process. Every recruiter can get the results of top-performing organizations, at a scale and fraction of current recruitment costs.
