Abstract

In today's complex business environment, it is more essential than ever to recognize that talent selection is critical and therefore must be at the top of a manager's list of priorities. It is very difficult to ferret out the important behavioral, motivational, and judgment traits that distinguish an inferior choice from a superior performer. Adding people with high performance capability and low turnover potential adds tremendously to the bottom line. Employing modern psychometric tools that accurately measure total human potential have been categorically proven to: (1) enhance overall productivity; (2) reduce employee attrition; and (3) reduce overall hiring costs significantly. Hiring right every time also mitigates potential damage done to the business both short- and long term from a very bad hire.
