  • Informed Hiring—The Smart Way To Hire and Protect Your Business
    The primary goal of an informed hiring program is to provide your business with defensible information on an applicant’s ability to perform the job based on objective data rather than subject reports. Only then can you truly protect your company from unwarranted compensation claims.

    BCG clients have access to an industry-leading solution to out of control workers’ compensation claims. Our affiliate, Bailey, Haskell & LaLonde (BHL) insurance, has developed a unique and tested system of work skills assessments, field surveys to perform job task analysis, creation of proper job descriptions, and testing to create a fully defensible hiring process called EmploySmart®, The Informed Hiring System™. Read what one client has to say about the effectiveness of EmploySmart®:
    "The escalating cost of employee turnover and healthcare were out of control. EmploySmart® from BHL has put the brakes on rising costs and is helping us to be sure we have the right people in the right jobs. More importantly, EmploySmart® has dramatically reduced our exposure to extensive compensation claims."
    -- Art Coughlin, Loretto

    At the heart of the EmploySmart®, The Informed Hiring System™ is a skills assessment that is designed by undertaking a thorough on-site task and work environment analysis to quantify the essential job demands and risks. As a condition of employment, all applicants in the selected work group as defined by incident occurrence, will complete a post-offer/pre-employment work skills assessment. The assessment is designed in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, allowing the employer to determine if the applicant meets the essential functions of the job and make an informed hiring decision.
