Tim Sackett: Quality of Hire Metrics are an Allusion
Quality of hire has been an elusive metric since the 1980s. We know how much it costs to hire, to train and to onboard a new employee, but few are willing or able to track the actual performance metrics required to track quality of hire. LinkedIn’s newest report brings metrics to quality of hire.
TLNT released its latest survey on hiring and retention, and while the findings aren’t revolutionary, they do merit a closer look. For example, the survey found that hiring times are longer now than in the past five years, and HR needs to speed up if they are going to get the best employees. This article offers how to tips to get that done.
Since the founder of Gravity raised employee pay to $70,000 across the board and invested full in his company, he has been featured on multiple media outlets. Today, he shares his views on company culture and how to make it happen.
