Some Questions for Your Human Resources Executive

Here are just four that should be considered:

  • Is the resume the primary factor in decision-making?
  • Was the job description tailored to your company's actual situation?
  • Is your HR team skilled in the art of interviewing?
  • What is your track record for talent retention?

While the resume is an important tool, it is a mistake to rely on it. Many candidates are not totally honest.

A surprising number of HR people will copy a job description they read elsewhere.

Interviewing is an art and a science, and unskilled people will form a bias early in the process and spend the rest of the time validating that bias.

The ultimate success metric for an HR department is the ability to retain talented people. If your retention rate is low, this is a clear sign that something is wrong.
