Many organizations say that “people are their most important resource”.

Every one of these resources went through the selection process in that organization. Some organizations are beginning to ask:• Do we see selection as part of Talent Management?• How do we measure and evaluate our selection process?• How do we define talent?• Do we know whom and where our Talent are?• How are we at developing and retaining talent?• Are we clear on what talent we are looking for and where to find it?• Are we encouraging and preparing our best people to participate in the selection process?• How do we treat candidates?All organizations face a talent crunch.

Baby Boomers are leaving the workforce at a rate of 10,000 people per day and this will continue for another 18 years. Generation X, Y and Millennial employees have shown less likelihood to stay with an organization than their predecessors have and employee turnover is increasing.

The recruiting and selection are becoming more important to the Talent Management process as organizations have to replace or relocate positions. Talent Management has to begin earlier than the end of year 1 or 2 of employment.Selecting Talent shows how selection processes can be improved by using valid, thorough and credible selection elements to save time, money, reduce turnover, and improve the newly assigned person’s productivity.

Organizations that invest in the quality of the candidate assessment jump-start their Talent Management process by including individual development action planning into the onboarding and orientation process.Selecting Talent is the second handbook from Assessment Associates International. The first is Coaching Winners by Dr. Ron Page. Selecting Talent is about 180 pages including about 65 pages of appendices for- job descriptions, competency profiles, interview guides, selection grids, candidate rating forms and offer letters.

The 21 short chapters focus on specific areas of selection, from common selection pitfalls, best practices, identifying candidate pools, training interviewers, testing, reference checking, decision making and offers. The author, Tom Payne, builds on research, practical experience and benchmarking to identify selection best practices. He leverages 35 years of executive HR leadership, 15 in the US and 20 in Asia to provide hands on practical advice. Some reviewer comments:“Selecting Talent is six sigma for the selection process”.“Great Advice! CEO’s and Boards ought to read this”.“A straight forward and practical approach to selection best practice.”
