Efficiency and Effectiveness in Volume Recruitment
Can you afford to waste 20% of your recruitment resources?
As applicant volumes rise, it’s getting harder to be efficient. So hard that one in five hires is considered either “bad” or a “regretted decision”. That’s 20% of time, effort and money wasted. But this level of inefficiency can be avoided…

Unlock Potential by Ensuring Employees are Well Matched to Their Jobs
According to hiring managers, 1 in 5 new hires are "bad" or a "regretted decision". Unlock potential by ensuring employees are well matched to their jobs and your organisational culture through your recruitment process. The new hire’s level of ability is only half of the equation; his or her fit is just as important.
According to the results published in the CEB SHL Global Assessment Trends Report: :
- 62% of organisations worldwide are using or planning to use formal culture fit assessments for candidates, up from 52% in 2009
- New hires who report a positive candidate experience apply 15% more discretionary effort and are 38% more likely to stay with the organisation.
