The Importance of Behavioral Instruments in Hiring
by Dr. Brad Smith
During a free HR webinar, I discuss how understanding how employees personalities can affect an organization. Specifically, an employee in a job that doesn’t fit their personality will spend a lot of energy trying to adjust to their workplace and its expectations. But an employee who is placed in a position that naturally fits their personality can avoid wasting that energy and, instead, focus on being productive. It comes naturally to them because their position meshes with their natural inclinations.
According to a recent PeopleKeys survey, over 78% of participants said they believed they needed to “adjust” their home personality to fit their workplace. Conducted on over 300,000 people from 33 countries, the majority of participants said the same thing–I have to change at work. And 94% of them said they believe that management’s motivational strategies needed to adjust for the individual worker and not just the group.
Understanding a candidate’s soft skills and behavioral preferences is so critical to job satisfaction, performance, and long-term retention. As a hiring manager, grasping a candidate’s preferences, and incorporating strategies to cater to them, can lead to long-term success. With this, you can avoid high turnover, conflict, and wasted resources.
