7 Steps to Improve your Quality of Hire


Less than a quarter of UK businesses are confident in measuring their quality of hire but as the latest unemployment figures reveal yet another record high of 74.8% employment, it must be a priority for HR.

Follow these steps to improve your quality of hire:-

Review your screening parameters : Agreeing and selecting the parameters in your applicant tracking system is important to minimise unconscious bias and evaluate candidates based on their experience and potential, rather than social background, race or gender. As a further measure to identify bias and improve your hiring success, review the common reasons given for candidate rejection in your recruitment data. Reference checks should also support your final candidate selection, although these should be approached carefully to avoid bias or discrimination.
