AETHOS and 20|20 Assess Call for Participants in a Recruiting Game-Changer: Identifying Employees with the "X Factor"
"A next-gen assessment that makes valid, real-time recommendations for line-level positions in the hospitality industry would be a game-changer," says Dr. John Bruce Tracey, Professor Employment Relations, Human Resources and Law, The Hotel School at Cornell University's SC Johnson School of Business, co-collaborator of the study.
Adds AETHOS' Dr. Houran. "This will be a one-of-a-kind and next gen solution that aims to solve one of the biggest issues plaguing the service-hospitality industry - a 70% turnover rate. Our findings will give critical information to employers at earlier stages of the hiring process, which can reduce the time-to-hire and avoid the financial costs of bad hires."
Research partners will receive an advanced report of findings from the field that will help screen and select line-level team members more effectively, as well as a unique partnership opportunity to be among the first-adopters of the '20|20xf' tool.
Hospitality organizations interested in participating in the study should contact Dr. Jim Houran who serves as lead on this study, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
