It’s a well-known fact that hiring the wrong person can be a costly mistake for an employer. A bad hire can also mean wasted time and resources, a strain on training resources, low performance outcomes, employee disengagement and legal bills.

With this in mind, HR is recognizing that successful hiring requires something more — an extra tool that digs deeper than the surface of a resumé or traditional interview techniques, and provides high-tech insight, understanding and analysis of the science behind hiring an ideal employee.

Three employers — City Wide Communications, Canadian Tire and Intek Communications — have made use of recruitment software to see shorter, more efficient, cost-effective recruiting processes, along with long-term success and engagement from employees.
