One Company’s Experience Using Hiring Assessments

Do personality assessment tests really work? We are going to discuss the why, when, and how to give assessment tests.

The podcast is with David Ferguson, CEO of MIE Solutions, which sells software (not assessment software) to the manufacturing sector.

We talk about how he uses assessments in hiring; whether they’re an identification tool; whether they ensure a successful hire, and more.

Rick Girard is founder and CEO of Stride Search Inc, an engaged search firm and the host of the Hire Power radio podcast.

His career has kept him laser-focused on building tech startups in the highly competitive Silicon Valley. He specializes in helping startups WIN key hires.  Value and impact are the two main ingredients brought to every interaction, above and beyond just locating the strongest people. Contrarian in his approach, he has flipped the script on engagement and the hiring process to bring a massive competitive advantage to every interaction.

While not running a school for Gifted Mutants as Professor X, he authored his first book “Career Wounds” (coming mid 2019), competes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and has an affinity for any adrenaline-pumping activity.
