Eliminate churn at the middle management level.

Originally uploaded by web5ter.
Companies do not spend the same level of time in screening middle managers before hiring them as they do when they hire senior managers.

This results in very high churn at the middle manager level.

One of the main reasons is cultural misfit.

This occurs with regularity in middle management hires because the hiring is done by the functional heads themselves.

They hire line managers based on skill sets and experience.

How do we ensure that cultural misfit does not occur?

Make behavioral and corporate assessment tests an integral part of your hiring process.

With these tools in hand an organization can ensure that it can make an effective, informed and a great hiring decision.
