Why do hiring managers seek people with high levels of emotional intelligence?
While IQ and technical competence will always be essential selection criteria for promotions and hiring decisions, such competencies do not predict who will emerge as a star performer or cause ‘big’ headaches. Traditionally, hiring decisions are primarily based on a person’s IQ and technical competence—without considering emotional intelligence. This could be why you notice so many companies are rife with cut-throat, toxic co-workers and bosses.
Research shows that it’s not a lack of technical expertise that leads to turnover, performance issues, stress claims, and morale problems; It’s the way people treat each other at work. Selecting an emotionally intelligent workforce addresses this important challenge. Each candidate who walks in your door has an EQ skill level that can be observed during interviews. Get the added expertise you need to spot these EQ skills in action during the interview before hiring decisions are made.
Over the years, Emotional Intelligence research provided key findings that offer organizations a competitive advantage in the marketplace if they adjust their hiring practices to screen for emotional intelligence.
Hiring for EQ offers insight into ensuring you bring in the right people and block those who will be destructive.
