SkillSurvey Webinar: Learn How to Assess the Key Predictors of Hiring Success

WAYNE, Penn. — May 8, 2014 — SkillSurvey(R), Inc., the inventor of the Pre-Hire 360(R) assessment, which recently received a U.S. Patent, will hold a webinar on May 14 at 3 p.m. EDT–“Soft Skills, Hard Benefits: Assessing the Key Predictors of Hiring Success.”

Attendees will learn how to assess the soft skills that determine success or failure in most jobs. These skills–including problem-solving, professionalism and adaptability–historically have been hard to measure. As a result, HR and other decision-makers in the hiring process generally go with their gut instincts. Not surprisingly, 46 percent of new hires fail within 18 months, according to a recent survey.

Now, thanks to predictive talent analytics and behavioral science, HR can measure these all-important skills and improve the way it approaches the recruiting process. This approach is proven to reduce turnover by 69 percent.

During this complimentary webinar, attendees will discover how to undertake this highly valuable approach and reap the benefits from it. Register for the webinar at:

Attendees will learn:
– How to identify a meaningful set of soft skills for each job
– How references from former managers and co-workers provide critical success predictors
– How to use predictive analytics to assess the key predictors of hiring success for each position

“HR is focused on the things it knows how to measure and ignores the things it doesn’t,” said Jack Kramer, SkillSurvey’s Executive Vice President of Field Operations, who will present the webinar. “A scientific assessment of past work performance is the single best predictor of future job success. Fortunately, predictive talent analytics now allows you to properly measure for the all-important soft skills that differentiate good hires from bad hires, and enables you to get far superior hiring results.”
