Hiring Recruiters is Hard – This Makes it Easier
When it comes to Talent Acquisition, there’s one thing that can sneak up on TA and HR leaders – hiring recruiters for your own team. As good as you are at serving the needs of the businesses you support, having a strategy to land the best recruiting talent can be challenging.
I’ve always used an assessment layer when we hire recruiters at our firm, so this Kinetix Labs paper, The Assessment Profile of a High-Performing Recruiter, outlines everything we’ve learned about using an assessment to hire the best recruiters and prevent false positive hires. Download this paper and you’ll get the following:
- Eight Assessment dimensions to evaluate recruiters
- Ranges you need in each dimension to predict performance
- Notes on the best way to read an assessment and get to a go/no-go decision
False positives when you hire suck. “False Positives” is the fancy way to say, “Damn, I missed again.” While there’s no silver bullet, adding an assessment layer can help.
