So, What Is Scientific Talent Management?
Here's how Alan describes it...
In short, "scientific talent management" is about using behavioral assessments in your hiring process to attract top talent and using the data and insights from behavior assessments to coach and lead your people for maximum productivity.
The science in scientific talent management comes from using behavioral assessments that have the strength of science behind them. In practical terms, it means using behavioral assessments that are:
Now we’re back to what all this means and why you can no longer afford to ignore using proven science in your talent management process or betting too heavily on just your management and leadership experience and intuition. How can scientific hiring make you look even more like the genius you are?
It takes the guess work out of knowing if a candidate is the right match for the position you are recruiting for. You no longer have to rely upon “massaged” resumes, hand-picked references or wonder if the candidate is really as good as their “sales pitch” makes them seem.
The right behavioral assessment also gives you immediate data and insights into coaching and leading your team. That makes it easy for you to relate to and communicate with each individual team member in the way that taps into their natural, predisposed behaviors and internal motivation. When you do that, magic happens. When you ignore the predisposed behaviors and motivations of each team member, everyone loses and productivity is far from what it could be.
