The only thing worse than a bad hire is the bad hire you could have…

Hindsight is 20/20. But, that doesn’t help when you see that you’ve made a bad hire. Maybe you can salvage the situation by assigning this person to a particularly adept manager. Or, maybe you’re going to have to bite the bullet and let him go. Either way it’s going to cost you.
Hiring is a highly subjective process to begin with. It’s easy to miss things about your candidate that you probably should understand a little better.
- Can he strike a smart balance between getting enough detailed analysis and getting the report out the door? Or will he be someone who likes getting lost down a rabbit hole of data?
- Will he earn the independence and autonomy you are ready to give? Or, will you have to keep him on a tighter leash than you’d like?
- Is he sufficiently creative in following a hunch to solve a particular problem, and yet understanding the importance of a logical approach under different circumstances?
- The Borrowman Baker BV Candidate Assessment will help you answer these questions, and more.
The assessment is a web-based candidate benchmarking system customized to BV. It relies on the Profile XT ™ and is uniquely crafted to provide you with valuable insight about whether your candidate is a ‘fit’ for your position.
The Borrowman Baker BV Candidate Assessment includes reports that illustrate how your candidate’s thinking style, behavioral and occupational interests compare to other professionals at the same functional level in a practice hierarchy, and suggested interview questions to help you know your candidate better. It also includes a phone consultation to help you use the results more effectively.
