Nathan Ott, Director at eg.1 was asked “How should you measure the quality of hire?”
“Too many organisations continue to focus on qualifications, past experience and personality when it comes to recruiting and judging the quality of the individuals that they hire. Focusing solely on who ‘fits’ into your organisation and who appears to get on with your team is the wrong approach. The quality of hire should be judged by the real contribution they are making. To do this successfully employers need to be clear about what it is their new hire is there to achieve. By understanding how they are going to contribute, whether this is by engaging their team, building on what has been done before or developing a new idea, organisations can give their new hire the freedom and time to achieve their potential.”
