There is a clear connection between engagement, performance and profit. It is imperative to drive performance results at all levels of the organization to seize market position and steer growth. Recruiting talented candidates is not enough; it's crucial that people are assigned to the specific roles where their talents will have the greatest effect on achieving company goals, and where they are most likely to remain fully engaged.

Matching each person to the right job using the job matching process outlined in this session will give you the ultimate edge over competitors: It builds a superior performing workplace and boosts employee morale and engagement. Job matching is the science of carefully defining superior performance in each position and using objective criteria to determine who is hired. Add some science to check your intuition when you join us for this session.

In this session you'll learn to...

  • Contrast traditional job matching and hiring processes to an assessment-based job matching system
  • Leverage a job benchmark based on top performers in your specific company to drive interview questions and find a specific match to the job's most critical competencies, behaviors, values, and acumen
  • Reduce the cost of disengaged and stressed employees who are struggling to meet the requirements of a position that isn't a good fit for their natural talents
  • Balance the risk of bias in intuition-based hiring with the science of online job benchmarks and compliant gap analysis of candidates
