Hiring decisions: have you ever got it wrong?

Have you ever hired someone and then realised within the first 6 months that the person is not right for the role or the organisation? Psychometric assessment is not a magic panacea but it is a very useful source of additional objective data, which if used effectively, increases your chances of ‘getting it right’. From a business perspective, spending time training and developing people who are fundamentally not suited to a particular role is far more costly than “getting it right” in the first place.

In addition to using psychometric assessments to help make a “yes or no” selection decision, the information obtained should always be used to help “onboard” the new employee quickly and effectively and to create an individual development plan to ensure they are set up to reach their true potential.

We are delighted to introduce our guest presenter Louise Anderson, Head of Organisational Development at Transurban, to share her experiences and personal views on using psychometric assessments to help with the selection and onboarding of talent at Transurban.

Andrew Stone and Sandra Foggiato will also share the PeopleScape approach to using psychometric assessments to:

  • Help organisations to make better selection decisions;
  • Improve the onboarding of new employees; and
  • Help build targeted development plans for key individuals.
