One of the most important elements which affect how an employee performs at their job—and how happy they are while doing it—is job fit.
Webinar: Finding Your Next Class of High Potentials – Effective College Campus Recruiting Strategies
Recruiting at any college campus can be a shot in the dark. The individual student has chosen their major course of study based on very little understanding of the requirements to perform well in that role. The relationship of key performance indicators for success in any given job and academic performance is only one component of the job fit puzzle. Profiles will challenge you to think about recruiting in a very different way. We will propose a new approach to evaluating the individual as they relate to the culture and career opportunities in your organization.
Job Fit Overview
The importance of ideal job fit is often underestimated, but it can have a major impact on the employee’s motivation, productivity and overall job satisfaction. An employee who is in a position for which they are not a good fit will struggle to do well, and will likely lose motivation quickly. This may even prompt them to leave the job completely.
As an employer, it is in your best interest to do everything possible to ensure employees are placed into positions that are a good fit for them. This will help you improve employee productivity and motivation while also reducing employee turnover.
Profiles International provides solutions to assure a better job fit for your employees. This includes the ProfileXT® assessment tool, which measures an employee’s interests and natural aptitudes. The data from this test can help you identify the job categories that would best use the employee’s skills while also allowing them to do work that interests them.
