Is Ready, Fire, Aim Your Talent Management Strategy?

Many businesses are still practicing talent mismanagement through “fire, ready, aim” rather than “ready, aim, fire!” Although you might get lucky and this approach may work, implementing a more logical and effective talent management process for selecting top talent is the key to your company’s future success.

The approach starts with a clear definition of the key jobs your company has to fill. You will have a much better chance of finding the right fit for a job if you first define the job, then hire the talent that matches the job. This concept is still too new for many businesses to grasp.

Your organization can take advantage of a time-tested strategic selection process that has proven to be beneficial for many companies in the typical “unlucky” hiring situation. Using the benchmarking process we help you define jobs and identify matching talent with factual, unbiased measurements. The next time you have an open position assess the job first and quantify its top three to five key accountabilities. The result will be a guide for objectively assessing and hiring matching talent.

Increase your “luck” in finding the right person for the job by adding this logical employee assessment methodology to your current hiring process to help prevent poor hires and the related drain on your business. Investing in an effective talent selection process will be a valuable decision in the future of your business.
