Question: How do we improve the quality of our hires?

Answer: Many organizations these days are justifiably concerned with improving the quality of hires with respect to employee retention, performance and cultural, organizational and role fit. Many employers believe it is becoming harder to find good people, and it can be extremely expensive and wasteful to recruit, onboard and hire a new employee, only to have her leave the organization a few months later.
