The success of any organisation depends on the quality of talents driving the execution of its set objectives. Therefore, hiring the right candidate for a job and improving employees’ on-the-job performance are the most critical human relation deliverables for growing and maximising business profits.
However, finding, managing, and keeping the right people is by far the most demanding challenge executives face in our business environment. C-suite executives, Heads of HR, and Talent Acquisition Managers often struggle to source, assess, and select top talent to guarantee business success and maintain a competitive workforce.
Today, due to the shrinking workforce and shortage of highly-sought employability skills, it is even more critical for Business and HR leaders to consistently identify and recruit the right people on time and cost-effectively. When a company hires right, the positive impact on its fortune is unquantifiable. Unfortunately, the reverse is also the case when a company hires wrongly.
Drawing insights from our 16 years recruitment and assessment experience in Africa, we wrote the highly contextual and pragmatic book - Hiring Right - to help business owners and executives navigate the complexities of hiring the right people for their business reality.
Hiring Right: A Matter of Life and Death for Businesses, Business Owners and Executives, is a practical, from-the-trenches hiring manual that will help bulletproof your organisation against wrong hiring and its negative impact.
In this value-laden book, you will learn:
The top 10 hiring mistakes that businesses make and how to avoid them
How best-in-class organisations carry out their hiring activities so you can adopt similar processes in yours
The importance of following a standardised process when making hiring decisions
The criticality of training and certifying your hiring managers before allowing them to participate in the hiring process
The role bias plays in hiring and how to identify your peculiar bias code
Insights from the all-time bestselling book and how to apply it to improve your hiring decisions
With dozens of case studies, practical and step-by-step advice, Hiring Right draws from over a decade of interactions with business leaders and HR consultants to provide a game-changing, easy-to-use reference manual that business owners and executives can implement to improve their hiring practices.
