Employment turnover cost the US economy a trillion dollars last year. What is it costing your company? The estimated costs of a poor hire run from three to seven times a person’s salary, especially in sales or management.
With stiff competition, costs rising and margins shrinking, no company can afford $300,000 or more per bad hire.
Your workforce is fuel for the business engine.Imagine how your business could perform if you were empowered to create the workforce you always wanted—an engaged, inspired team, in which every person is in a job that brings out the best in them.
CPR is an innovative and powerful methodology for assessing and analyzing the role you need to fill. Quality hiring hinges on the candidates ability to execute and deliver on key initiatives in a manner that amplifies your company’s brand. We teach you to utilize pertinent data, from existing performers, from the stakeholders and from the outcomes the role is required to produce to lay the foundation for selecting the ideal job candidate.
Let’s face it most, if not all job descriptions are outdated. Performance requirements in the role are often an after thought and not brought up until a person is hired for a job. With CPR the role is the performance. We begin with understanding and articulating the purpose the role exists.
Role analysis is a process that helps you analyze and assess the real needs in the role, department and company. If your company is seeking a highly productive environment, where everyone is committed to the same goals, you must learn to hire right by beginning with the end in mind. When defining the role, you are setting clear expectations of what the position requires and how performance is measured.
What does the comprehensive role analysis process involve?
Role analysis begins with looking at the corporate strategy and being very clear on how this role helps the company achieve its corporate objectives. Some key questions that we ask you and your management team during the role analysis process include:
What are the non-negotiable operating standards that must be met for you to maintain your reputation, remain profitable and continue to deliver a high-quality service to our customers?
What are the smart objectives, or Key Performance Indicators, required for success in the role?
What are the day-to-day big-picture activities or core functions that this person needs to fully engage in to effectively achieve these objectives in the time frames you expect?
CPR empowers you with a new paradigm for creating performance based job descriptions and offers system to hire right, the first time. Contact us today to see how we can help you implement a robust talent strategy in your organization.
