Are you using your subconscious to hire the right people?

Sometimes it takes going through a full circle to find that we had a very good answer to begin with.

In recent years recruiting experts developed some amazing tools to identify the right candidates for businesses—matching capabilities and aptitudes to the tasks of the position at hand and the organizational culture of the recruiting business.

There are, however certain things no test can reveal.

The willingness to give of oneself is one such key component.

Recruiting experts can pick up on such nuisances though. They can because they use a subconscious programming that has seen hundreds if not thousands of candidates linking details only the subconscious mind is capable of grouping together alongside an effective feedback loop.

It may seem out of reach, but it is as scientific as testing and screening at this point.

  1. Is it fair to say that the willingness to give of oneself is one of the most important components of any hire?
  2. Are there other elements that are critical in hiring people that can only be detected through subconscious thinking?
  3. Do you know how to train your team of recruiters or do you evaluate the ability of your outsourced recruiters to effectively use subconscious thinking in interviews or do you only care to know which metrics and testing tools they can use?
