In his article, Dr. Adam Grant—creator of Optimize Hire—discusses why standard interviews are such poor predictors of job performance and explains better methods to improve hiring decisions.

“Interviews are terrible predictors of job performance” writes Dr. Grant, citing a evidence from, “hundreds of studies of more than 32,000 job applicants over an 85-year period.” In place of traditional interviews, Dr. Grant recommends the following approaches as significantly better predictors of job performance:

  • Pre-employment tests
  • Structured interviews
  • Work samples
  • Work simulations

Optimize Hire uses the same evidence-based approach to determine which applicants will be the highest performers for your jobs. Check out what others are saying about Optimize Hire.
