Screening Prospective Employees Part I
After reviewing 81 studies, Professor Van Iddekinge found little correlation between an employee’s prior work experience and their performance. Hiring decisions are often based on past experiences of a prospective employee, but now this Harvard Business Review research tells us experience has little impact on future performance!
When the professor was asked what employers should focus on instead, he encouraged employers to focus instead on knowledge, skills, and traits of the employee. God had a similar idea.
In Exodus 35:30 we read, “See, the Lord has chosen Bezalel … and He has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills.”
In this series we will discuss the importance of seeking knowledge, skills, and traits in a new employee.
