Performance-Based Hiring: How to Attract & Retain Top Talent

In a recent study, 91% of CEO’s see a need to change their sourcing and recruiting strategy. It is necessary to have new techniques, tools, and processes for recruiters to meet the shift to the hybrid-working model. 

The Great Resignation is putting too much emphasis on filling jobs quickly, rather than on finding and hiring the best person possible long-term. The result? – underperformance, dissatisfaction, and unnecessary turnover. By hiring for the anniversary date, rather than the start date, you will avoid most of these problems and attract stronger people.

Prioritize employee career progression and shift to a longer-term lens and your organization will:

  1. Gain confidence when sourcing, interviewing, and recruiting
  2. Increase employee retention and performance
  3. Save time & money

In this upcoming webinar, recruiting and hiring expert Lou Adler will discuss how to attract a great hire that everyone will be happy with on the first anniversary date. 

Learn how to:

  • Spot the difference between great hires and great candidates
  • Craft job descriptions to attract more diverse, high-potential talent
  • Measure performance in an interview to test if the candidate can actually do the job
  • Identify candidates who view the job as a career move
