Most people would agree that making the right hiring and promotion decisions can make the difference between business success, mediocrity or failure.

Given the costs of recruiting, on-boarding and training new hires, as well as the time it takes for people to become truly effective in their new role, business leaders and HR are only right to focus on the return of investment of talent decisions.

This brochure presents example of how organisations have effectively used the Hogan Assessments to increase staff productivity, lower turn-over and reduce safety-related incidents.

This is a year of fundamental change for Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) HR and risk departments, as they face a barrage of new and emerging challenges.There is the long-awaited GDPR implementation, the uncertainty of Brexit negotiations, the continued move towards contingent and flexible working, and ever-present technological disruptions. 

Despite the fact that there is so much change to address, the 2018 HireRight EMEA employment screening benchmark report reveals that, for many businesses, growth is a top priority. As a result, hiring rates are expected to rise – in many cases, significantly. 

The report, based on the thoughts of EMEA HR and risk decision makers, reveals a number of other key recruitment and screening trends this year. In particular, it looks at the shifting focus from attracting talent to retaining it and a continued emphasis on the candidate experience.

In an ever growing global workforce, one of the biggest challenges for recruiters is avoiding a bad hire. With the challenges recruiters’ face increasing, getting the right person for the job is a hard task, and the stakes are higher than ever. Risk mitigation should be one of the top prioroties for recruiters. They have to know everything about a candidate to ensure they are a good fit for the company and that the candidate can do the role in question.

This report sheds light on the different types of risk involved in organisations’ recruitment practices.
