WHERE THERE'S VARIABILITY, THERE'S OPPORTUNIITY
Lots of companies deal with:
Some think that for certain roles, these issues have nothing to do with hiring accuracy...
It's true that JOB FIT is driven by not just the person's characteristics, but also the job's.
So how do you know if your employee issues are more a 'hiring problem' or 'job problem'?
LOOK AT HOW RESULTS VARY ACROSS EMPLOYEES IN THE SAME ROLE.
For example, if everyone turns over around the same time (e.g., 12 months), it's likely a job problem.
If you're seeing very different results across employees in the SAME role (boss/pay, etc.), however, it's likely a hiring accuracy problem.
The good news?
"Where There's Variability, There's Opportunity."
If you're seeing variability across employees, focusing more on hiring accuracy can present a huge opportunity in your efforts to improve employee performance, retention, or culture.
