Recruiting new talent – hire for attitude, train for skill
As the Harvard Business School so succinctly put it, when it comes to recruiting new talent best practice is to ‘Hire for attitude, and train for skill.’ Assuming this to be true, recruitment must include a robust way to source and assess candidates with the best attitude, using proven techniques.
Different industries, such as IT, Finance and Media use different recruitment methods. Individual candidates prefer certain types of recruitment formats – test, presentation, face to face etc. What we do know is that candidates need the ideal opportunity to showcase their strengths, attitude and behaviours. And, employers want to match a candidate against their business skill set, culture and future requirements.
Raw Talent are passionate about looking at the make-up of an individual. As a rule we don’t ask for or look at any CVs. Instead, we get to know people, we talk to them. We also make use of our purpose-built assessment tool – SiD – to gain a 360⁰ detailed overview of each individual candidate to achieve 100% employer suitability.
SiD – Select, Identify, Develop
SiD is unique, effective and efficient in assessing a candidate’s abilities, behaviours and ultimately competencies. It also:
- scores candidates to provide automated detailed feedback
- it’s intuitive and fully adaptable towards the needs of the employer, their culture, their ‘right type’ of people
- the outcome – a complete assessment of the individual, within minutes, to show if they should be hired
- added benefit – individual development plans for every assessed candidate.
Leave nothing to chance when it comes to recruitment
The important thing is to leave nothing to chance. Remain focused on the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to do the job for which the candidate is applying.
By approaching recruitment in a scientific way, the right outcomes can be achieved to create a predictable operating model that isn’t dependent upon hiring high-risk, high-cost individuals.
