It feels good to set a goal and then reach it. Even from a young age we're taught it's good to have goals and strive for them. But not all goals are created equal and there is definitely a good way to set them and numerous bad ways.

For example, a good goal is one that is achievable. It would be admirable for me to strive toward becoming a starting center for the Portland Trailblazers, but at less than six feet tall, it won't happen no matter how hard I try.

Goals should also be finite and measurable. Why set a goal if you don't have a clear idea of what it looks like? How will you know when you've reached it? A good way to define your goal is to ask, "What will success look like when I've reached it?" Keep your goals specific and singular, too.

Hiring Goals

Hiring top employees is an expertise that all businesses should seek out, either outsourced or internally. How does the smart organization know what a top employee looks like? How is 'top' defined?

eRep provides a revolutionary and profoundly accurate service called the Top Performer Profile™. A TPP uses the Core Values Index, the top psychometric assessment on the market today, to define the ideal CVI parameters for a role. It harnesses the power of machine intelligence and mathematics to analyze existing employees in the role or the characteristics of the ideal if the role is new, and converts them into a range of CVI values.

The Top Performer Profile defines the target CVI scores of the ideal candidate.

Job applicants take the CVI and their scores are compared against the TPP ideal. Candidates are ranked by how close their scores match that ideal and are grouped into High Recommends, Low Recommends, and No Recommends.

When you implement a Top Performer Profile, the results are fully integrated within the eRep Applicant Tracking System (ATS). This forms a seamless and powerful yet easy to use integrated hiring platform. The end result is you get an accurate hire, putting the right people into the right seats with unprecedented ease.

No other hiring package on the market even comes close.
