How many recruiters would lay claim to being “below average” in staff selection? Half of us are, by definition… but of course ego says, “not I”… it’s always someone else. The jury has been in on the uselessness of resumes for decades. Even if they were not full of misleading information, half-truths and downright lies, they are valueless.

Locating a skilled candidate can be one thing, but finding someone who is happy to stay in a new position is another. Without the right tools to predict an applicant’s compatibility to a role you are left with a guessing game which has historically resulted in costly employee turnover.   Hiring managers have an incredible amount of applicant information available to them, however Gartner has reported that only 21% of human resource managers feel their companies are using talent analytics enough to make informed business decisions. Predictive analytics in recruitment can provide insight to enhance the effectiveness of your recruitment and…  Read More
