The story...
There has to be a better way to do this.
Can we make the process more efficient?
Can we find data sources that are
actually predictive?

Late 1990’s barriers vs. today...



Lack of data systems clearly indicating
performance vs. today’s accountability
systems
Lack of predictive tools―and those we had
were cumbersome
Lack of ability to make data usable,
transparent, and actionable

What seem to be the core
problems today?





Building-level autonomy vs. centralized
consistency
Insuring compliance with the created system
No funneling of candidates to save resources
Little use of multiple data sources to suppress
measurement error
No collection and analysis of longitudinal data
to make adjustments

Background of Hiring Practices



Why is hiring important? You can’t develop your
way out of a mediocre hiring decision.
Certain characteristics such as judgment and
learning agility are difficult, if not impossible,
to develop
Even if certain skills can be developed over time,
assessing those traits during the selection
process can offer substantial time and cost
savings for employers

Background of Hiring Practices
“If you have only one dollar to spend on either
improving the way you develop people or
improving your selection and hiring process,
pick the latter.”
—Douglas Bray
Talent Management Pioneer and Researcher

Hiring based on what individuals know vs.
what their true talents are

process and little other information to make
