Hiring is always hard. Hiring well is even harder. Really hard.
One of our clients has finally committed to radically changing the way he hires and step one is the use of hiring tools such as DISC. Actually using the info from DISC is hard, too. Because the results often tell him something he doesn’t want to hear: the candidate is not a fit for the job.
Hiring tools have been used for decades. The good ones are expensive and worth it. They are the real thing. When they are used well they absolutely improve your ability to hire someone who is the RIGHT FIT for the job.
Hiring well is everything. If you aren’t working to develop your hiring skills, start now. Go online and start googling.
I’d like to write a Mastercard ad for hiring tools:
Help wanted ads: $1000
Management time spent interviewing: $3000
Tools that prevent you from hiring the wrong person: priceless.
