Data in Recruitment: A Blessing or a Curse?

We are used to hiring based on assumptions.

We assume someone with a master’s degree is smart.

We assume that someone more extroverted is better at sales.

We assume that someone with a clean resume is a structured person.

Unfortunately, hiring mistakes are being made when assuming instead of measuring. 

When, in fact, the true success of hiring depends on how many objective measurements you have & how you use these measurements when making hiring decisions.

Luckily, there is a way to tackle this uncertainty and that is by harnessing the power of data and science, the right way.

In this guide, I will explain to you how it can help you to find the best talent out there, while simultaneously enlarging and diversifying your talent pool!
