3-1 Improving the Screening Process
Employment screening is always difficult. The goal is to decrease the number of applicants so that you have a select few, highly qualified candidates. Now we find ourselves in even more difficult times with the Covid-19 virus upending our economy and adding millions of people to the unemployment rolls. HR managers who are hiring will find themselves in the increasingly difficult situation of trying to sift through mountains of resumes with the goal of finding the most qualified candidates. In the best of times, trying to hire the most qualified candidates that will add to the success of an organization is a challenge. There are many different filters that can be used to try and eliminate bad matches for the job. Unfortunately, these filters are not very good and have the possibility of leaving out job candidates that may have been a great fit for the organization and including candidates that are a poor fit for the organization. According to Harvard Business Review, up to 50% of the hires in the IT industry are a cultural mismatch, leading to loss of production and an unacceptable turnover rate. In the IT industry, these current bad hires can cost organizations an average of $240,0000 per employee (Forbes, 2016). Although a candidate may have the right KSA’s, the right educational background, and do a very good job interviewing, what they think is important about being successful in the job may not align with what the company thinks is important for success in the job and for the organization; and for that reason, they may not be a good cultural fit for this particular company. Hiring someone who is not culturally aligned with your organization is one of the main contributing factors for poor hiring metrics.
