Hiring Great Talent Begins with a Plan
Step 1: PLAN | Know the Job
Whether you’re seeking a senior executive, a mid-level manager, an individual contributor, or a salesperson, knowing the job means identifying the skills, traits and behaviors required for success in that role.
This step of the process helps hiring managers and recruiters align early in the selection process by defining benchmarks across cognitive skills, behavioral traits, and career interests most important to be successful in a position. These targets become a performance model that determines the range of scores that you are looking for in a candidate. With these performance models in place, the selection decision is accelerated, and the path for onboarding, coaching, and development is clear.
