Recruiting employees with the right skills as well as the right cultural fit for the organisation is not as straightforward as some may think and can be a challenge. Unfortunately, having a well-written CV and seeming confident in a face-to-face interview is not enough for employers to determine if a candidate will succeed in a position or not. There is much more to any candidate than their education, experience, skills, and past experiences.
Many employers still focus on CVs and interviews when making hiring decisions and this can lead to costly hiring mistakes. It is estimated that up to 75% of all hiring decisions result in a mis-hire. This is both time consuming and expensive – it can cost a company roughly 3.5 x the employee’s annual salary.
The key to predicting future success and making the right hiring decisions is assessing a candidate’s personality traits. Conducting a career personality test is a proven method to evaluate candidates’ behavioral tendencies in a work environment that enables recruiters to understand if they will become top performers and thrive, as well as fit into the culture of the company.
Frequently Asked Questions
Although the terms “coach” and “consultant” are often used interchangeably, they actually represent distinct roles and approaches to problem-solving.
A consultant is typically someone who provides expert advice and guidance to individuals or organizations in a particular area of expertise. Consultants are often hired to solve specific problems or address particular challenges, and they bring their knowledge, experience, and skills to bear on those issues. Consultants may work in a range of fields, such as business strategy, marketing, technology, or human resources.
A coach, on the other hand, focuses on empowering clients to identify and achieve their goals. Coaches help clients to clarify their thinking, explore their values, and develop their own solutions to problems. Rather than providing answers, coaches ask questions and provide support and guidance to help clients develop their own insights and solutions. Coaches work with clients on an ongoing basis and often help them to develop skills and strategies for long-term success.
In summary, a consultant is typically an expert who provides answers and solutions to specific problems, while a coach empowers clients to develop their own solutions and achieve their goals over time.
