The inagural post will take you through the business case for, and a summary of, science-based hiring. This field has been busy for more than 100 years, testing out different hiring practices to see which ones work to predict how people will really do on the job, and which ones don’t.
The amazingly productive team of Schmidt, Oh, and Shaffer published a report in 2016 that compared 31 hiring practices, found the gold standard, and looked at the improvement (if any) of predictive power when you combine each practice with the gold standard.
What is that gold standard, you may wonder? Explore the presentation to find out!
