Faced with an uncertain economic future and a tight talent market, organizations are more wary than ever of making the wrong hiring decision. In response to this need for greater quality of hire, forward-thinking organizations have strengthened the screening process to do more than merely verify a candidate's employment history.
Using behavioral science principles, employers can now compare data collected during the hiring process with that candidate's performance data post-hire. This comparison is the foundation of data-driven profile that, with enough data, will guide hiring decisions in critical roles. As more hires are made using this process, these data sets become incrementally more powerful tools that can predict a candidate's likely performance with great accuracy.
