What is values based hiring?
New hires come to your company complete with values and culture from their last job. If those values are the same as your company’s existing values, the new hires are more likely to succeed, and as a result, less likely to churn out.
Values based hiring means, first of all, committing to a set of values; and secondly, making job descriptions, interview questions and employee evaluations all reflect those values.
Therefore, values based hiring is especially relevant as your company grows. Successful companies enjoy a culture of hiring excellence, because they attract a broader pool of candidates, and because they identify new hires who already have the right values.
How is values based hiring deployed?
Talent Sonar provides consulting services to help your company achieve values based hiring.
Values Development and Re-assessment
No values yet? Talent Sonar’s experts run a workshop with your team, and together, we develop values that reflect your culture and mission. This workshop:
- Highlights inclusiveness, and
- Maps your values to your goals.
Similarly, if your organization already has values, this workshop re-assesses them.
Values Based Job Description Workshop
Talent Sonar experts review 10-15 job descriptions from your organization, and we:
- Find and fix terms that discourage good applicants, and
- Suggest additional inclusive phrases.
Next, we present findings in a working session, in which participants adjust two job descriptions themselves.
Values Based Interview Questions and Rubric Development
We explore the research on how unconscious bias affects the hiring process and how to mitigate it. Participants build an interviewing guide and hence evaluate candidates consistently and fairly.
