Costly bad hires result from the tendency to focus attention on the “technical” requirements of the job. The behavioral competences and attitudinal components are neglected with disastrous consequences.
A seminal Harvard study attributed 85% of success to Inter-personal skills and only 15% to Technical competence.
In our quest to bridge this gap, the Success with People Academy with its international joint-venture partner – Extended DISC International/FinxS – offers a powerful 5-point Candidate Screening Role Fit evaluation process.
In the quest to bridge this gap, INFOSERV with its international joint-venture partner –Extended DISC International/FinxS – lends support to the role fit evaluation process.
The intervention has five components:
Developing a competency-based behavioral “ideal profile” template for the role.
Implementing Personal Behavioral Analyses of the applicants with bench-marking against the “ideal profile” for the role.
The Ideal Profile feature is an effective and powerful tool that is developed by collecting and combining the opinions of key players in an organization about the behavioral competencies that are required to effectively perform a particular job. Alternatively, Extended DISC/FinxS experts will create the Ideal Profile based on the Job Description that is provided.
Providing an Interview Map to guide targeted interaction with the candidates.
Creating a multi-person, report that provides line-by-line comparative analysis among the candidates and against the bench-marking template.
Appending a brief questionnaire to the assessment that requires candidates to provide historical evidence of their demonstration of some core issues.
The questions apply leading-edge Behavioral Interviewing techniques to capture information on issues such as Integrity, Commitment, Courage and Goal-focus. The responses are included in the comprehensive assessment package along with the psychometric and competency-based components. Situations may be presented to candidates to solicit their response.
