Question: I’m a manager with over 20 years of experience. We’re seeing some turnover among our engineers and project managers. We’re doing our best to get a handle on it. The reason for contacting you is to see what you think we should do to improve the odds of hiring good people in the first place. I hear about all the engineers that India and China are supposed to be turning out. I can assure you they’re not always what they’re cracked up to be. Some are good, some are not, but that’s no different than my experience with engineers
from U.S. schools. I’m looking ahead. Making good hiring decisions is going to be more important going ahead. There are more choices for employees. There’s going to be more competition from employers for the really good ones. We need to do a better job in hiring top talent. Here’s my issue in a nutshell: What should we be doing to make sure we are hiring the best employees we possibly can?
Answer: At the outset, let me say that this question is at the core of my consulting practice. Each day within the assessment service area of our practice, we deal with this matter with our clients, small and large, from all employment sectors.
