Once again the academics have fearlessly gone forth and discovered the what anyone who has ever run a business will immediately tell you.
Analysing 85 years of data on Employee selection criteria, our intrepid researchers identified the following three characteristics of successful employee criteria
1. GMA tests (“General mental ability”)
2. Work sample tests
3. Integrity tests: surveys design to assess honesty … I don’t like them but they do appear to work.
While the bottom three characteristics assuming graphology is some general rubbish
16. Years of education
18. Graphology (e.g., handwriting analysis)
Anyone who has had to hire not in some corporate environment but in an actual business especially a start-up early stage could have told you that.
