We like to learn more about the behaviour of the candidates that we're working with before we put them forward for roles that we feel they may be suitable for. When we recommend people for positions, our professional reputation is on the line so we always like to know as much as we can about these prospects.
While skills, qualifications and experience are paramount, behaviours and personal attributes are extremely important too, and are often deciding factors when a prospective employee needs to slot into a team environment. We utilise modern psychometric assessments as part of our premium service, which ensure a candidate not only matches the job spec, but the person spec as well.
This process has proved highly effective at vastly improving staff retention rates compared to standard recruitment methods. Candidates placed using this tool will not only have the skills to do the job, but also the right cultural and personality fit for your organisation. If a candidate leaves their post within the first year, it is very rarely because they cannot do the job they were hired to do, it’s usually down to them not fitting in with the company culture or those around them. Psychometric assessment can help eliminate this.
This process will save you both time and money. Time wasted interviewing unsuitable candidates will be eliminated and improved staff retention will save you money that may have otherwise been spent on re-recruitment.
