The hiring industry is one of the very few sectors of economic activity, where work never stops. Even during the global slowdown between 2008-2010, employment increased in Delhi by 23,000 in both public and private sectors, according to Government of India Statistics. Not just this, more than 3.6 million executive leaders are predicted to retire in 2017 as per a report by MRInetwork. This means that more younger employees will be required, to fill the management positions.
But the arising of a need to fill positions often paralyses companies. The fear of making a flop hire, losing out business in the duration to hire and worries about employee retention often make companies to actually make bad hires. It can be their inadequate expertise in finding the right candidate or in testing him that causes the problem. According to a report by Inc.com, 2 in 3 employees say their employer does not know how to use social media to promote job openings.
Recognising their need for external help, Primo Hiring Solutions, aims to use its ability to accurately spot and judge human talent in preventing companies from making bad hires. Primo is a recruitment consultant based in Delhi, India and has been efficiently working for firms by finding the right employee for their company.
Their hiring process is based on a few simple but important ideas. First, that an employee’s personality is as important as the skills he possesses.
