The quality of your people and your Talent-related programs directly impacts your organization's success, more so in today's economy than ever before. New challenges present opportunities to jump-start organizational performance through an improved workforce by hiring better and by developing employees to their full potential. Despite slowing seen across several major industries, recruiting and hiring are still happening and are still critical determinants of Quality of Hire.
However, as job openings are reduced and staffing resources become more precious, great hires become even more valuable and bad hiring decisions more costly. In addition, the need to retain (and possibly retool) employees requires an accurate understanding of their current capabilities and future potential...and how that aligns with your organization's needs.
