Strategic Consulting Japan G.K. screens all it's candidates with Lou Adler's Performance-based hiring methodology, this ensures that all candidates are screened thoroughly, as well as offering consistency for candidate bench-marking.
Hiring Managers, and people in general are guilty of stereotyping, gut feelings and first impressions. Generally speaking, within the first 30 seconds we have an impression and make a decision, then we spend the next 30 minutes rationalizing our initial impression. If we like a candidate, we seek reasons to continue liking them, if we don't have a good first impression, we spend the rest of the meeting validating why we didn't like them in the first place.
Additionally, most hiring managers feel it is the candidate's responsibility to prove themselves in the interview.
Hiring consistently top performers requires more than a gut feeling, it requires methodology. Utilizing the performance-based methodology utilized by G.E. and developed by Lou Adler offers a good solution to this problem.
Here in Japan, often the professional who speaks the best English wins the job, overseas interviewers hire based on presentation, not performance.
Performance-based hiring ensures the best professionals are separated from the best interviewers.
