What Is Topgrading and How Can You Implement It In Your Organization?
The Topgrading approach to hiring and promoting is not simply an evolution, it's truly a revolution. This proven method allows you to select only the very 'best of the best' when looking at candidates for today's jobs.
It's packing the team, indeed the entire company, with the very best people at every pay level. Topgrading hiring and promoting methods are basically common sense, but delivered and applied on steroids. These methods include (among many others):
- Clearer, more in-depth job descriptions (called Job Scorecards)
- Screening candidates not from deceptive resumes but from a Career History Form (now also available as part of the online Topgrading Snapshot) that includes a built-in "truth serum" and provides full comp history, boss ratings, and much more.
- The famous chronological Topgrading Interview (now supported by the pre-populated Topgrading Interview Guide containing the data entered by your candidates as part of the online Topgrading Snapshot) that scrutinizes every job
- The requirement for top candidates to arrange personal reference calls with former supervisors and others.
In this challenging market, any mis-hire can be devastating and a key mis-hire can be catastrophic. Topgrading is designed to make certain that you have the very best opportunity to add 'A Players' to your team and avoid the staggering cost of mistakes.

Important Note: The Topgrading® Candidate Career Center is a secured system that requires you to login with a unique Username and Password. To protect your privacy and security, after 60 minutes of inactivity, your secured session will expire. However, if you forget to save your data and step away from the system for more than 60 minutes (don't worry, we know it happens), your entered data is safe. You will also still be able to save the data you see on your screen and nothing will have been lost. Just press the save button and the system will accept and store any changed data. It will then require you to login again for continued access. Remember, it's always smart to save your data and log out of the system whenever you will be away for any extended period on this system (or any other system you may be accessing). This simply assures that no unauthorized person can access or enter data into your records.
