Selection Systems – Measuring Up?

Jan 31, 2013

How are today’s selection systems stacking up? Do they meet expectations?

When staffing directors were asked to rate the effectiveness of their selection systems, almost 3 out of every 4 (72 percent) rated them as effective or very effective. This was surprising given that only 19 percent of staffing directors reported having a talent acquisition strategy that is ahead of the curve. This raises the question: What do organizations consider to be “effective”?  Is an effective system one that merely keeps up with others? Will building a modest system be enough to ensure that an organization stays ahead of its competition?

A talent acquisition strategy is a critical component to longevity and maintaining the right team, without one, true effectiveness may be short term at best.
