Companies should go beyond traditional background checks and screen the behavioral traits of a candidate. Behavior can be tested through a series of assessment tools, such as psychological, skills, and aptitude tests. These tests can uncover a candidate’s ability to fulfill job responsibilities as well as analyze his or her temperament in particular job scenarios. This ensures that a company is more likely to hire the appropriate candidate for a position.
In addition, companies should strive to retain their best employees by creating an ideal company culture. Turnover rates can be greatly reduced by showing employees that they are appreciated and by maintaining open lines of communication.
