When the upturn comes and the Top Talent leave their current organisations how are you going to select them out of the masses who are sure to be applying for your job adverts? Will you rely on your Managers’ gut instincts and potentially questionable interview techniques to find the Top Talent for you?
Research shows that future behaviours are are best predicted by past behaviours. I have seen for myself the rich evidence you can gather from asking candidates to complete tasks that replicate the role they are applying for. Not only does this help in your selection decisions but also for their continuing professional development once in the organisation. Also building their commitment to the organisation as candidates view Assessment Centres as relevant and fair. For more information on best practice in selection; http://bit.ly/13Fh81
