If you’ve ever suffered the financial and emotional cost of a bad-hire you’re not alone. Most managers have made bad hires. Hiring is difficult. People who look good on paper and interview well can still turn out to be a disaster.

The problem is that hiring is a big decision based on very little information. The recruitment process is a time suck when you are short resourced. And often the worst job candidates get the most practice at interviewing. They know exactly what to say and do to get the job.

Hiring is a bit like playing Russian Roulette - play it often enough and you're guaranteed of a bad result.


The good news, is that bad hires can be almost entirely eliminated when you know what to look for. Bosses are responsible for employee selection, motivation and retention. But they don't teach you how to do this in school. Hiring the best employees requires:

  1. Better manager hiring skills
  2. Proven candidate assessment tools and
  3. A proven recruitment process

That's why hiring for performance is a foundational skill in the program.

  • Get better at defining job requirements,
  • Show you how to truly test candidate skills against job descriptions and other candidates.

The right person in the job will improve employee performance and staff retention.
