The HirePayoff™ Concept Goes International
Million Dollar Hire: Build Your Bottom Line, One Employee at a Time, the Book That Helped Launch HirePayoff™ Will Roll Out in China During 2014.
January 28, 2013 – In a more and more competitive global economy, the importance of every hiring decision being a solid investment continues to grow. Even with lower average compensation levels, the Asian economy, too, is beginning to focus on using recruitment and selection and employee testing to find the best talent – workers with the ‘Can Do’ and ‘Will Do’ competencies it takes to increase sales performance, grow employee engagement, reduce turnover rate, and improve employee retention.
“We were happy when informed that rights to Million-Dollar Hire: Build Your Bottom Line, One Employee at a Time (Jossey-Bass, April 2011) were
purchased from Jossey-Bass by a Chinese publisher, with a planned China rollout for early 2014,” says Dr. David Jones, the book’s author and head of HirePayoff™, the recruitment and selection employee testing venture launched as ideas about today’s best employee screening, testing, and assessment tools, presented Million-Dollar Hire, gained traction in the U.S. marketplace.
“As more and more employers in the U.S. asked us to frame online selection tools that tap critical candidate competencies, we built on the decades of examples presented in Million-Dollar Hire, rolling in today’s employee testing, technology, and legal test validation compliance tactics to bring everything to the cutting edge,” says Jones. “Obviously, other economies are facing the same need to find talent with the ‘Can Do’ and ‘Will Do’ competencies needed to succeed, and to grow employee engagement once on board. Now, it seems a matter of international competition,” adds Jones.
David Jones, PhD, author of Million-Dollar Hire: Building Your Bottom Line, One Employee at a Time, published in April, 2011 by Jossey-Bass, is among the few HR professionals to found and grow a major international HR consulting business. In Million-Dollar Hire he shows how, even in a slow economy, U.S. employers make millions of hiring decisions every month. Every decision carries risk. Every hire is an investment. Ideally, every hiring decision pays a return. Using practical, real world illustrations, Jones shows there are tools to treat every hiring decision with the same focus a business applies in acquiring other high-value assets.
Today, Jones is president of Growth Ventures Inc., whose HirePayoff™ division works with employers to implement ‘Can Do’ and ‘Will Do’ online employee testing. Through HirePayoff™, Jones helps companies re-invent their recruitment and selection practices and add to the bottom line with re-engineered,
legally compliant tools. For more information, visit www.hirepayoff.com.
