The Rule of Thumb for Making Hiring Decisions
Most hiring decisions are based on the resume and interview performance. We encourage clients to go beyond this two-dimensional assessment and to consider the rule of thirds: 1/3 of the decision should be based on experience, skills and documented ability; 1/3 should be based on performance on behavioral style assessment testing; and 1/3 based on the candidate’s “fit” with the culture of the company. If the candidate hits the mark in all three of these critical areas, it enhances the chances that this person will turn out to be highly engaged, highly productive and an overall top performer.
