WHAT YOUR RECRUITMENT STRATEGY SAYS ABOUT YOUR ORGANISATION
TALENTED RECRUITS SOMETIMES ARE NOT TALENTED INTERVIEWEES
As I journey daily, from organisation to organisation I am privy to HR and Management practices that leave me cold. I would like to share some of these moments with you, which will hopefully offer you a different perspective and raise your own personal awareness to the pitfalls of an unprofessional selection process. One would assume that within our unique South African context, together with strict Labour Laws, interviewing 101 mistakes would not still be happening in 2018, but this is simply not the case. A legal loophole exists for employers, which is that most South African jobseekers cannot prove they have been discriminated against during the interview process and perhaps more to the point, is why many organisations are able to get away with unfair recruitment practices.
PSYCHOMETRICS FOR PRESIDENTS – PART 1
The world has come a long way since the middle ages, where tyrannical kings were placed in charge of people, and ruled through fear, cruelty, war, oppression and almost limitless power. The Enlightenment and other forces in world history brought about a move towards Democracy. This was meant to save us from all the issues of birth-right leadership, Feudalism and a host of incorrigible systems. But did it? The idea that if most of the people in some place vote a person into government, that must be for the greater good and that the leader will do what is best for everyone. If only! How rarely it seems to work like that. Of course, democracy is complicated and there are countless dynamics, logistics and political realities that throw curve balls into the equation. One way or another, nations great and small appear to land up with leaders who seem like the worst people for the job rather than the best. Surely, we can come up with something better? Well the corporate world has dealt with this in a well-researched manner that uses good science to predict job performance. If we are able to predict if some junior manager is going to perform well in a role, shouldn’t we be applying that science in the political arena as well? If we are concerned enough to avoid a bad hire in an office park, wouldn’t we want to assess the president of the country, where the stakes are so much higher?
‘THE YEAR IN THE LIFE OF’ A PSYCHOLOGY INTERN. PART ONE: HOW I RADICALLY CHANGED MY CAREER DIRECTION
A year ago, if you had told me I was willing to walk away from my consulting career in a prestigious global firm, to start again as an Industrial Psychology intern in order to redefine my purpose, I would have said, “what on earth for?” I was exceeding all expectations as far as a career in consulting goes.
