Handling conflict is an excellent skill for HR professionals to have in their HR toolkit.

Tips for Using Assessments Effectively

Why should HR professionals use assessments?

There are many reasons why HR professionals should use assessments. There are also many types of assessments available to HR professionals, and it’s important to know when and why to use them, as well as how to use them effectively. First, we need to ascertain the responsibilities of HR before determining how and when to use assessments. Human Resources is expected to recruit “quality” employees, hire “quality” employees, train these “quality” employees; and lastly, evaluate these “quality” employees. HR is also responsible for developing the succession plans for their organizations, which requires high potential “quality” employees to fill positions left vacant by retiring employees or those being promoted.

Since we have no “HR Crystal Ball” and we cannot select these quality employees subjectively, we need professional assessments to help us make these important decisions. Let’s take a look at some the types of assessments available that would be excellent “objective” tools to assist us in our decision making process.

Posted by Susan McCullah

The big dogs are a different breed of animal to recruit and hire, and the way you screen them should be, too. 

Whether hiring a top level manager, financial executive, or sales executive, employers should give thoughtful and extensive consideration when making an offer for a high ranking position

Why should the hiring process of senior level executives be different?

The first reason is the liability to the company’s reputation. The news is full of examples of executives who faked their education, provided fraudulent references, or who were out and out criminals!  Making a bad decision in hiring a top level executive can cause great damage to a company’s reputation. Just one PR nightmare can take years to clean up.
