In my opinion one of the most important steps organizations can take in the hiring space is to elevate hiring from a transaction brought about by a vacancy to a behavior and attitude which is embedded in the organization’s culture and business rhythm. To this end, organizations need to shift the dial a bit and start to behave as if hiring is a two-way decision and one that needs to work for both parties. One of the best things they can do is to increase honesty in the process.
