​​​​The hiring process is broken. In most organizations the process is time consuming, costly and doesn’t predict job performance. The problem is made more difficult by the:
  • Decreasing pool of qualified candidates; the complexity of knowledge jobs has resulted in fewer applicants with the capacity for success.
  • Inaccuracy of resumes; resumes only record what a person has been allowed to do.
  • Ineffective interviews; subjective interviews incorrectly reduce the candidate pool through "like me" bias.
  • Fear of hiring the wrong candidate; fear often leads to the elimination of qualified candidates.
