The interview: It’s the gateway into understanding a candidate’s fit for not just a role, but for an entire organization. Few other steps in the hiring process give you quite the same insights into a prospective employee’s talents, ambitions, and personality. The latest Gartner® Report, “Redesign IT Interview Process to Improve Quality of Hires,” provides CIOs with guidance on how to make better hiring decisions through a structured and consistently applied interview process.
‘’Bad hires are costly to hiring organizations. In fact, Gartner® research indicates the replacement cost, on average, amounts to one to three times the annual salary of a job, including the extra time and resources spent on recruitment and onboarding.’’ Most IT leaders feel comfortable with evaluating candidates on technical knowledge and skills, but these same leaders may be ill-equipped to assess the kinds of behavioral competencies that are key predicators for job performance and career growth potential.
By restructuring the IT interview process as shown in the graphic above, hiring managers can set themselves up for success in attracting dependable talent that can aid in significant digital business growth. TriCom has a long track record of using data-driven decisions to find the right candidates, so after you’ve read the report, reach out to our experts to learn more.
