Description
Great companies, large and small, rise or fall because of their talent; the more high performers on your team, the more successful your organization will be. Of course, that's easier said than done. Research shows that only about 25% of all new hires turn out to be high performers. But companies that have used Brad Smart's Topgrading system over the past two decades have boosted their hiring success rates dramatically-sometimes even to 90%.
Three huge problems account for the typical poor results in hiring: dishonesty (via deceptive resumes), incomplete information (via shallow interviews), and lack of verifiability (via biased references). Topgrading shows how to solve all three problems. Instead of hiring by your gut reactions to resumes and interviews, you can start using a scientifically honed process that compels candidates to be totally honest.
The Topgrading system makes hiring easier, faster, and more successful than any other process. And it works at every level, from the front lines to senior management.
