Selection consultants can and do change the world on a daily basis, according to Adam W. Hilliard, one of the new contributing bloggers for the SIOP Exchange. Adam discusses his thoughts this week in his first blog post for his continuing series on the topic of selection and assessment.
 
“If every hourly worker is hired using a more rigorous process and is 10% more productive in a year, with a value of 50,000 in output, then produces 5,000 more in revenue, multiply that by 400,” Adam says. “The company just gained a net $2,000,000 and produced more for less in a year. Add in decreased cost of safety incidents/workers’ comp, absenteeism, and turnover, the company then runs less aggressively against its margins and can consider expansion sooner. Certainly this affects the GDP on a small scale, but it is a purposeful, additive, and positive gain. It may not completely change the economy, but it’s a pretty good start.”
