"The Essential Guide for Hiring & Getting Hired" shows companies how to effectively develop an optimal talent acquisition strategy to reduce costly turnover
IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lou Adler's path from engineer to manager, then recruiter to hiring expert has given him the perspective to develop the solution. In his Amazon bestseller, Hire With Your Head, he introduced the Performance-based Hiring process.
Companies worldwide are now using Performance-based Hiring as a means to convert their entire talent acquisition process into a core strategic asset.
His newest book, The Essential Guide for Hiring & Getting Hired, takes it to the next level. This book is written for everyone involved in the hiring process. It will help hiring managers and recruiters find and hire more top-notch people for any job, from entry-level to senior executive. Just as important, it will give job-seekers an inside view of how companies look for, assess and hire new employees.
Performance-based Hiring allows companies to unify their performance management and hiring processes. Companies base internal promotions on a person's past performance and future potential. But they use a different process for hiring and selecting outside people, largely based on skills and experience. This prevents companies from seeing and hiring the best people available.
Performance-based Hiring fixes these problems and reworks the system. Performance-based job descriptions replace traditional job descriptions. Evidence is used to assess competency and fit. Rather than weed out people who don't posses some arbitrary list of prerequisites, compelling career messages are used to excite and attract the best.
Due to this unconventional but commonsense approach, David Goldstein of Littler Mendelson, the largest labor firm in the U.S., was asked to review Performance-based Hiring: "Because the Performance-based Hiring system does differ from traditional recruiting and hiring processes, questions arise as to whether employers can adopt Performance-based Hiring and still comply with the complex array of statutes, regulations, and common law principals that regulate the workplace. The answer is yes."
