The Golden Era of Talent Selection is coming. Over the past decade, pre-hire testing has become a standard, and today, most large employers use assessments to vet candidates for job openings. Once this new era begins, companies will employ more sophisticated pre-hire selection tools, combined with big data and analytics, to evaluate candidates before and after they are hired.

During this session, Charles Handler, president and founder of Rocket-Hire, will explain how companies can capitalize on the impending Golden Era of Talent Selection. Examining how science and data connect talent acquisition with performance management, Handler and CEO, Greg Moran, will discuss how closed loop analytics will impact post-hire situations with pre-hire information. Using these analytics, companies can gain further insight into the relationship between talent acquisition and talent management to ultimately improve the hiring process. They will also explore how expanded data usage can predict candidate performance, an integral component of talent management. Painting a dynamic picture of this coming era, Charles and Greg will illustrate how the increasing emphasis on pre-hiring influences business outcomes as well as the overall hiring process and employee lifecycle.

Attendees will learn how to approach this new era from a scientific standpoint, relying more on big data and analytics in conjunction with testing and assessment strategies. 

HR and recruiting professionals, business managers and executives who wish to learn more about the evolution of talent selection and the intersection of talent acquisition and performance management are encouraged to attend this informative session.
