Quality hiring, criteria of post-recession
Bangalore, Mar 30: Post Recession will see heavy changes in the hiring pattern by the companies. Hiring will mainly focus on quality rather than quantity and there will be a pronounced thrust on the all-round ability of those recruited to deliver.
"As the global economy recovers, we are going to see companies getting smarter about recruitment," according to Sheeroy, CEO, Professional Aptitude Council (PAC).
There would also be a mass demand for outsourcing and company would not only look into cost arbitrage, but also quality arbitrage.
Earleir, above-average quality recruits were acceptable, but now the focus would be to ensure 'high quality' hires. The immense pressure to ensure 'more joins' would give way to 'best quality joins'.
Foreseeing the trend in pattern, PAC has come out with scientific tools to help employers hire people with skill sets that are 'best available' geographically. The PAC test measures candidates over various parameters and compares skill sets with those worldwide.
