Finding and hiring the right candidate is no easy task. There are so many different variables that enter into the equation and ultimately affect its outcome.
Unfortunately, the hiring of the right candidates is one of the most important things that an organization can do. High-quality, dedicated employees are the lifeblood of any company, and that’s why properly pre-screening your pool of candidates can mean the difference between personnel success and employee failure.
Specifically, below are three benefits associated with properly pre-screening candidates:
#1—Reduced risk of mis-hires.
It’s no secret that hiring the wrong candidates (or even those that are just a “bad fit) can be extremely costly—in terms of time, energy, and money. When candidates are properly screened, though, candidates that would have otherwise turned out to be mis-hires are screened out. They can never be a mis-hire if they’re never hired in the first place.
#2—More targeted hires.
This is the flip side of the coin. If you reduce the risk of making mis-hires, then you’ll increase your chances of making good hires. However, it doesn’t stop there. That’s because you don’t want just good hires; you want great hires. Effective pre-screening tools and techniques help organizations better identify truly unique candidates that can provide tremendous value as employees.
#3—Improved rates of employee retention.
The only thing better than hiring truly unique candidates that can provide tremendous value as employees is keeping them as employees. When you screen out potential mis-hires, identify and hire superb candidates, and then retain those candidates as long-term employees, you set your organization up for continued growth and prosperity.
