Virtual Learning Session on Quality of Hire

Virtual Learning Session on Quality of Hire

The National HRD Network in association with LinkedIn is pleased to announce its upcoming Virtual Learning Session on "Quality of Hire- Are we searching for the Holy Grail ? " on Friday, 30th August, 2013 at 1500 hrs.

Prior research on recruitment has studied pre-hire outcomes ((e.g., number of applicants, job offer acceptance rates), Post-hire outcomes (e.g. job performance, employee turnover), recruitment objectives (cost of hire, time to hire, number of positions filled, diversity, channels of hire) . These remain the conventional yardsticks to measure a recruitment functions' effectiveness. However, HR functions link HR practices to business outcomes. It therefore becomes important for the recruitment function to look beyond inward focussed conventional recruitment metrics and understand the linkage between their hiring practices to key parameters of organization performance. Organizations today place too much emphasis on two basic metrics –Time to fill and Cost Per Hire and neglect to sufficiently debate upon, identify and measure of a new age parameter called Quality of Hire. However, conventional practices of measuring this critical parameter by practitioners cause this parameter to primarily function as a "lag" indicator. Since hindsight is always 20-20, the challenge still remains for Talent Acquisition functions to then define and measure in ways that are proactively yielding desired business outcomes. How to do this seems to be the million dollar question !

LinkedIn will also share their 2013 Global recruitment trends survey findings and talk about how Indian recruiters today are emphasizing on quality talent.

The distance organizations need to travel from ‘Good’ to ‘Great’ depends a lot on their ability to deliver sustained business performance that creates a win-win for all key stakeholders. A key enabler to this is a robust Performance Management system that motivates employees to take stretch goals and reward them for the meaningful contributions.
Planning for talent – quality and quantity – and then attracting them is one of the constant challenges HR professionals face in today’s War for Talent. Does your organization have a formal manpower planning process? What are the recruitment channels you use most frequently? What recruitment metrics are used by organizations?
