The right people in the right jobs

Work misplacement and misalignment are common. Both managers and job seekers are increasingly dissatisfied with current hiring practices. Statistics show that only 1 in 5 hires are rated as a ‘great decision’ by both manager and employee after 3 months of employment – that’s an 80% failure rate. That’s unacceptable in any industry or sector. 80% is awful – so what’s the problem?

The ultimate issue can be tracked directly back to our reliance on the résumé and filtering applicants using only the basis of education, skills, and experience. It is well researched and documented that new hire fails have nothing to do with the content of their CV and everything to do with compatibility problems. The person was poor fit for the demands of the role, a mismatch with the manager or didn’t jive with the company culture. They were chosen for the job based on the proper terms on their résumé or were convincing during their interview. A few months later when things go south and your new hire is either terminated or resigns, you can look back and say – it’s not you, it’s me – but actually it’s not me either. It’s not you, it’s not me, it’s an antiquated hiring practice. There is a solution. And its name is Jobtimize®.
