The phenomenon of having more accuracy collectively than individually when some conditions are respected is called Collective Intelligence. It is the foundation of Checkster’s methodology to make better talent decisions.
Collective Intelligence is at the source of many decision tools. The most well known success is Google, the search engine that decides what is relevant. More recently Yelp helps you make better decisions about a restaurant; TripAdvisor about a destination. Similarly, Checkster helps you make the best decision about talent.
Checkster’s process is fast and easy with powerful results for any organization that needs to make a talent decision: a hiring, promotion or separation choice. In order to optimize the decision accuracy, Checkster provides an online framework to structure and capture intelligence from a range of people while utilizing the principle of collective intelligence.
For example, if you need to hire someone and you want to make sure the references from past colleagues concur with your judgement, Checkster’s collective intelligence gathering will provide that extra degree of certainty in your decision. Checkster’s innovative web-based solutions each use collective intelligence combined with the ease and reach of social networks to deliver fast, accurate social ratings for better talent decisions.
The Reference Checkup assesses talent pre-hire by upgrading the traditional telephone reference check. The Interview Checkup gives interview debriefs a new level of objectivity. The 360 Checkup provides new hire quality validation, 360 degree assessment and developmental feedback to current employees.
