McKinsey is featuring Google chairman, Eric Schmidt in a video series worth watching. You’ll have to register on the McKinsey site if you are not already registered. In the first clip titled: Hiring and Recruiting, you’ll hear Google’s perspective on hiring the best and brightest in the industry. Interestingly, they were conducting between eight to ten interviews with candidates and then not hiring them. So they analyzed the situation and determined that they could make a hiring decision in five interviews. Schmidt also shares how there must be “discord plus deadline” in meetings for them to be effective and to drive business results.
Check out the video on Hiring and Recruiting and then I would love to hear your thoughts. Would these concepts be useful in your business?
