Develop and execute systematic, best-in-class hiring practices to seize--and hold--the competitive edge in your industry

Defending your business from the competition through regulations, differentiated technologies, brand recognition, and other methods is no longer a sustainable competitive advantage. In today's fast-paced, ever-changing business environment, you must take an offensive stance to keep your competitors at bay. And this groundbreaking guide provides the inspiration, the know-how, and the tools you need to achieve it.

guides you through the process of designing and implementing a data-driven hiring strategy that will secure your business for the foreseeable future. Revealing how today's top innovators--including Netflix and Google--dominate their industries, it shows how you can do the same by implementing systematic and repeatable processes that lead to better, more consistent hiring outcomes. You'll learn how to:

- Envision an evidence-based approach to hiring
- Distinguish useful data from the data you don't need
- Use the best technologies to achieve your recruitment goals
- Build an effective talent-acquisition team
- Improve on-the-job success predictions
- Design well-defined and objective measures to improve hiring outcomes
- Avoid the most common hiring pitfalls

Data and analytics have been reshaping countless industries as they turn from anecdotal to evidence-based practices. The recruiting and hiring processes, however, have been intuition-based. That changes today. Evidence-Based Recruiting introduces an entirely new approach--one that relies on irrefutable facts and data, enabling you and your organization to thrive in the new era of talent acquisition.
