Do higher pay scales attract quality talent?

The short answer is NO.

Disclosing your capacity to pay higher salaries can compromise efficiency of hiring process because:

· There will be overwhelming applications
· Qualifications and experience can be exaggerated (see our previous posts for justifications)
· Screening and hiring process will take longer than necessary
· Mere application judgements do not translate to quality hiring

Applications do not reflect a candidate’s true potential, because even mediocre candidates could have impressive credentials if they took help from a professional writer.

Many organizations misunderstand the concept of “quality” candidate. An employee performs his or her best when they are given the right atmosphere to exercise their talent and freedom. This happens in a culture-centric organization where a candidate’s personality and attitudes are given equal priority as qualifications. This implies that even mediocre candidates from companies will become star performers in your company.

Higher salary is an insignificant metric. Sync between culture and personalities is key work efficiency. – No more resumes, no more job search.
