The Importance of Evidence in Hiring

08 December 2023 by Shweta Jhajharia

Have you ever thought about implementing half-day paid trials as a step in your hiring process?

In the Hiring Superstar Talent series, we’ve talked about setting KPIs, aligning them to KSAs, and the importance of pitching your business in a job ad, all to help attract the ideal candidates.

Now, you’ve found the person that you’ve been looking for – their CV looks good, the initial interview went well, and they seem experienced. But, how do you know that reality will meet expectations once you’ve hired them?

In this video, Shweta explains why you need to rely on evidence in the hiring process.

You’ve already defined the important criteria you’re looking for, now you need to use tests. The results will streamline the deselection process and give you the confidence to know when you’ve found a solid new hire.
