Changed 10 jobs in 3 years? Big data says” “You’re a good hire!”
Research has revealed that a candidate’s past job-hopping record should have no influence on his future performance at work and his tenure at the new employer. In short, give no preference to a person’s stable history at a company. Balderdash!
Lack experience? Big data says: “You’re a good hire!”
The third finding goes against conventional wisdom. HR officers would naturally attach some importance to past experience – in some cases maximum. And most descriptions of job openings state clearly the required minimum experience required for application to a job posting. Big data analysts report that previous experience is in no way related to either performance or tenure on the job. Conclusion – make fresh college passouts the CEOs of all Global Fortune 500 companies and soon we would have trillion-dollar corporations floating about a dime-a-dozen. No wishful talk this!
Spent time in prison? Big data says: “You’re a good hire!”
Strange. But big data says it is not. Data analysis shows that an employee’s criminal background has no influence on his/her output, sincerity or loyalty at work. Actually, hiring those with a criminal record means hiring employees who are better performers when it comes to “Customer-support”-related work profiles. Hire a criminal, and get your customer satisfaction levels up to levels never seen before. Killingly surprising!
Dishonest? Big data says: “You’re a good hire!”
In a study conducted at Xerox Corporation, more than 48,700 employees were interviewed in a 6-month-long process to find out the honesty quotient of the employees. It was discovered that those who fell in the “Dishonest” personality type, were better candidates (than the “Honest”lot) to be hired in the Sales & Marketing department! Shocking coincidence.
