Client Recruiting Team Examples Carl Bradford has Certified in Performance-based Hiring.
What is Performance-based Hiring?
Performance-based Hiring is a real, end-to-end business process based on KPOs (Key Performance Objectives) for hiring. The method was developed and pioneered by Lou Adler, a colleague that I’ve worked with for over 20 years. Today it's used around the world by many companies who have replaced their old, ineffective and traditional hiring processes with Performance-based Hiring. This includes many organizations who have changed from traditional behavioral interviewing to a performance-based approach.
Employers would greatly benefit from this business process in several ways, especially when hiring in a highly competitive market where candidate supply is short and compensation pressure is high.

How Does Performance-based Hiring Differ from Behavioral Interviewing?
At its foundation, performance-based hiring is much more than an interviewing methodology. Our approach is a true, end-to-end business process that starts from a different perspective and progresses through specific steps until the person is hired, begins work, and into their employment.
A key difference is that our interview is very focused on job performance in relationship to the specific performance criteria (KPOs) of the job.
We do not ask vague behavioral questions such as, “Tell me about a time”. Our interview method foundation consists of only two basic questions. These are referred to as the MSA question and the Problem Solving question. We build on these questions using a rigorous fact-finding probing questions to dig deep into the candidate’s background and draw real work comparisons to the performance-based job criteria.

What are the Obvious Advantages of Your Search Process?
Carl Bradford has been privileged to work with hiring teams from many different business markets, as they transitioned to a performance-based hiring strategy. The consistent improvements enjoyed by these organizations have been remarkable. They begin seeing candidates they were unable to reach previously, and in so doing raised their talent bar substantially.
The organizations which took an open-minded approach to this change and implemented a performance approach to hiring, consistently improved their ability to attract higher caliber of talent, compete less on total compensation and retain their talent longer.
We utilize a performance-based approach for all our searches. In addition to providing higher caliber of talent, clients can experience this process and may elect to utilize for all hiring. We offer contingent, retained and embedded search.
