Recruiting people is hard work under great time pressure:
Research shows that these short interactions put you at risk of making biased recruitment decisions.
Recruiting relies on candidates' self-promotion. But research has shown that:
Psychometric tests still rely on self-provided data, and referees are picked by your candidate… It's time to expand your sources of information!
Leadership recruitment experts can screen candidates to limit your risk… but that's long and costly.
You may do that for senior executives, but what about all other candidates you will trust with managing people?
Want to get insights, and fast? Grapevine flags potential issues with your candidate, by asking those who have seen them at work: former colleagues.
It's like a 360 review for candidates!
Beyond the warm feeling we all get at the idea of positive work culture, it also delivers impressive performance benefits.
A 765% boost in revenue based on culture seems a bit crazy… but it's based on a long-term study of 200 companies, led by reknown Harvard professors!
Kind of impactful, wouldn't you say? A great culture starts with picking better people leaders. And that just got easier with Grapevine!
Grapevine helps shine a light on managers who have a track record of creating positive work cultures, based on what past subordinates report.
Or you could trust whatever your candidate says, risk hiring toxic leaders, then fix the poor culture with band-aid solutions. Up to you.
“Culture eats strategy for breakfast” - Peter Drucker
A team with a great culture AND great talent? That's going to make a huge difference. And a key factor in retaining top talent is to focus on who manages your people.
When you hear from Gallup's study of 7,200 people that 50% of them quit to get away from a bad manager, it's worth pausing to think. Was it because the manager was not technically proficient… or because they were toxic?
Great managers are great humans, with qualities that are hard to assess in typical recruitment processes. Grapevine gives you the confidence that your candidates have cared well for their people in the past… or flags potential issues for you to investigate further.
