Every hiring manager should have a repeatable selection process consisting of three phases: job and candidate definition, screening, and evaluation. Here is how a hiring manager knows if they have an excellent selection process:
Do employees respect the new hire for succeeding in the selection process?
Would employees cringe if they had to go through the selection process?
Do weak candidates drop out of the selection process because it is too hard?
Are superstars attracted to the company because the selection process ensures weak candidates are not hired?
Does every new hire, without exception, go through the selection process?
Do potential superstars embrace the selection process?
Empowered hiring managers have a quality selection process, are disciplined in administering it, and make successful hires.
