Is your company investing in the best talent?

Executive Outplacement: Learn what to consider in this process

Table of Contents

Preparing a selection process involves a series of criteria to understand which profile is most suitable for a particular position. Hiring the wrong person can not only increase the company's costs but also compromise the business result. Training is not always enough to fit the professional into the expected skills. So invest time and resources in the best hiring.

Hiring a professional who is not 100% within the expected characteristics for a certain position can bring direct and indirect costs to the company, for example, a dismissal can lead to termination fines, in addition to damaging the company's image, with poor quality service , performed by an unprepared professional. According to research, companies that hire well invest half as much as others in training because that kind of support often turns out to be unnecessary.

Often, in the rush to find someone to fill a strategic position that is empty, some managers may give up some selection criteria, such as a thorough assessment of behavioral skills. The consequence can be disastrous for the new employee and for the company, with difficulty in integrating with the team and compromised deliveries.

It is not always possible to find a ready professional, with all the characteristics determined for the vacancy, but the important thing is to know how to prioritize what will be most needed for that role. In a commercial area, for example, companies want people focused on results, with good communication skills, but also with organizational and planning skills. All these characteristics together are not always present in the same profile, but it is also worth considering the experience and maturity that the candidate brings to reach the best-prepared professional.

It is worth mentioning that training employees is fundamental and must be a constant practice of companies, especially to improve the skills of each one and expand the competencies. What is not recommended is to bet all your chips on courses and think that any professional can be molded the way the manager wants.

To meet the increasingly demanding demands of companies, consulting firms specializing in selection are investing in new tools that guarantee more assertive hiring and, consequently, reduce costs and obtain better results.
