The Recruiter’s New Job

Now, recruiters can focus on what they do best.

A recruiter’s time is best filled with high-level, strategic functions like focusing on interviews, showcasing their employer’s brand and nurturing prospects. Only recruiters can build the relationships to attract hard-to-find hires.

Padgett Performance Group automates the recruitment process, helping companies move quickly — so you don’t lose a new hire to another employer. The talent acquisition system introduces efficiencies in the entire hiring process that reduce the overall cost per hire, and help recruiters get back to what they do best.

Go Beyond Eligibility to Predict Success

While people may be hired for their eligibility, they are usually fired for their actions.

When a person isn’t right for a job, no amount of training, coaching or development can optimize their performance — regardless of their experience and tangible qualifications. Padgett Performance Group helps companies find the right fit by using the Harrison Assessment Talent System®, which includes assessments for eligibility, suitability, and behavioral traits.

The Harrison Suitability Assessment measures potential job satisfaction and allows you to match individual traits, preferences and competencies to your position’s requirements. Your company’s values and culture can also be incorporated. While companies have traditionally hired based on skills, experience and training, more progressive businesses consider factors like motivation, attitudes, interpersonal skills, and work preferences. Companies like Southwest Airlines, Boeing, IBM, Citibank and Zappos all consider candidates’ behavioral traits, organizational traits and preferences in addition to eligibility.

A New Approach to Talent Acquisition

Redesigning Talent Acquisition improves the quality of candidates, while reducing up to 80% of the work in hiring. From pre-screening applicants based on your qualifications, to ranking candidates based on eligibility and suitability, to tracking applicants through the recruitment process, Padgett Performance Group helps companies save time and money, and hire the most qualified applicants faster.

Recruiters can move fast, so the company doesn’t lose a talented hire to another employer. In addition, the talent acquisition system significantly reduces the overall cost per hire.

Find the Right Fit, From the Start, with Pre-employment Screening:

Because Padgett Performance Group is a Harrison Assessment Partner, You have access to the best job analysis tools in the industry. We utilize Harrison Job Success formulas, used by organizations worldwide. They allow you to rank candidates based on levels of experience, education, skills, work attitudes, behaviors, work preferences, and even culture.

You can draw from Harrison’s library of thousands of Job Success Formulas, leveraging research-based, job-specific performance guidelines. You can also customize or create your own formulas by integrating the input of others involved in hiring for the position, adjusting behavioral requirements to meet your specific needs. The results of third party tests may also be integrated into the talent recruitment process.

Candidates for a given position are ranked continuously, with results available online within seconds. This eliminates administrative time as well as limiting the review of resumes to only your best candidates.

Improve the Interview with Better Questions, and Quantitative Scoring.

A recent university study found that the typical interview increased the likelihood of choosing the best candidate by less than two percent. That may be optimistic. We have seen cases where classic interviews selected good hires only 40 percent of the time — which means bad hires exceeded 60 percent.

Padgett Performance Group can assist your organization in improving the interview process with an interactive Interview Guide. When you partner with Padgett to use the Harrison Assessment Talent System, you will receive a custom Interview Guide and report for each candidate, addressing job-specific questions raised by the assessment, and producing a quantitative score. This dramatically elevates the quality of interviews by consistently focusing on key success factors and possible hindrances.
