Sixty-seven percent of human resources professionals said immediate performance is a critical indicator of a successful recruitment process for professional- and managerial-level employees, according to a survey by Futurestep, a division of Korn/Ferry International Inc. (NYSE: KFY).
However, 40 percent of respondents reported concerns about the metrics and measurements that they have in place to assess performance once the recruit is on board. In addition, while 95 percent of respondents who have a formal measurement process in place used a methodology, only 51 percent agreed that the methodology was widely used within the organization.
Also, 76 percent of respondents measured the impact of a hire in the first 12 months, viewing this immediate impact as three times more valuable than retention.
The inaugural Futurestep global talent impact study 2012 was conducted online by Research Now, an independent research company, using a sample of 1,589 HR professionals in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Brazil, China, Hong Kong and Australia between Feb. 21 through March 9, 2012.
