How well does Interviewing work in Choosing the best Employee?

Employee Performance There are problems in using “predictors” of suitability for open positions within a company. Hunter and Hunter (1984) showed that interviewing is one of the worst predictors of future job performance.  Using reference checks (.26), education (.22) or biographical data (.37) did not improve the odds too favorably. In fact, even the best predictor, test scores, came out at .57.  We could make the…

On the way to the Veterinarian’s for an emergency run, we passed a church whose billboard stated “You can’t see the picture, if you are inside the frame.” The statement clearly applies to both our organizations and the dichotomy that exists in almost every workplace on the face of this globe we call earth.

If I only had a brain says the scarecrow

The news wires of late have been filled with stories one after another of NFL players involved in some form of domestic violence. Listening to Roger Goddell’s statement last week added to the feeling that something in this picture was missing. Like many organizations the NFL preferred their bottom line to what was morally and ethically right. Consider the reports from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission regarding the $17,000,000 they have collected in fines for a wide range of…

They can hear me now

Listen to most organizational development professionals and they will tell you that the key to organizational change is to communicate, communicate and then to communicate again.

I am just sayin....

My “daughter” likes to preface her more profound statements with the saying “ I am just sayin…” and it seemed appropriate for this post to begin with her saying. Over the past year there has been much discussion in the social media realm about the future of HR.

Recently I have read and heard an ongoing discussion about the future of the human resource profession. On one side is the school of thought that says we need to go back to the days when we were called Personnel. Back to the…

The best ever follow-up interview question: “How did you come up with the idea?"

I’m working on a blog post on job interviews — from the employer side of the desk. After all, there are thousands of “how-to” articles, blog posts, and advice on “acing the interview” from a candidates viewpoint. But, how about “acing the interview” as employer, while at the same time providing a great…

Why?

Honesty in little things is not a little thing

I Know I am right, that is my job!!!!!

Several years ago I walked into my favorite bookstore and was fascinated by a book on the shelf.What caught my eye was the bright orange cover and the band of duct tape across the cover.

In Chapter 7 titled“Ooch”, they talk about a company which scheduled interviews for an open…
