How to Predict High-Risk Candidates When Hiring

By Carrie Kolar Tue, Jul 21,2015 @ AM

Recruiting and hiring candidates can be a risky business. Recruiters try to predict whether the candidate will be an asset to the company based on criteria such as skills, previous performance, and recommendations from other employers. However, one area that recruiters have not been able to measure is whether candidates will commit to the employer long-term. A second-best candidate who stays with the company is a better choice than a first-place candidate who only remains for a matter of months. A candidate who is a “flight risk,” or who is probably to move to another position before bringing value to the company, is a high-risk candidate that employers would rather avoid. While flight risk has been historically difficult to measure, Talent Analytics Corp. has recently released pre-hire flight predictions for job candidates and current employees, which recruiters and hiring managers can use to help assess whether a candidate is the right one for the job.
