Psychometric/Psychological Assessment<br />We work with the client to select the most appropriate assessment tools. The selected questionnaire is then administered to the candidate in a controlled environment. In addition to a written report, the client and candidate are given personal feedback.<br />The goal of the selection process is to predict superior job performance. It is vital to know whether a candidate has the skills for the position and the “fit” for your organization’s unique culture. A characteristic of psychometric assessment is the ability to learn a great deal of information that would otherwise be difficult to detect within the constraints of the selection process.<br />This additional information provides vital insight about potential job performance.<br />It has been conclusively demonstrated that personality profiling and ability testing can significantly improve human resource and business decisions, resulting in productivity gains.<br />Psychometric<br />Assessment<br />

Talent Tracking<br />Attraction and retention of top caliber talent is important to the success of every organization. We have created, designed and developed a software application tool, Human Capital Management System™ (HCMS™), in order to effectively identify and track talent. <br />HCMS™ allows us to gather and pool information for your specific talent tracking requirements. We have the capability of tracking an individual or groups of related professionals for your organization’s short and long-term hiring needs. This includes the capability of identifying professionals with the specific skills, education and experience for your immediate and future needs. <br />Our talent tracking tool equips an organization to ensure a greater success in achieving its goals through an effective proactive talent management program. <br />Talent<br />Tracking<br />
Exit Interviews<br />Organizations are increasingly concerned with the costs and impact of turnover, increasing talent competition and the challenge of effective employment branding.<br />Our Exit Interview service was developed in response to clients requesting solutions to their growing concerns. The knowledge gained from our effective exit interviews will enable you to build quantifiable value propositions to attract and retain employees.<br />Outsourcing exit interviews benefit your company by allowing for anonymous statistics and information that would otherwise be difficult. This frees up the productive time of your resource team to focus on other pressing needs. Without this valuable information, an organization is often merely speculating as to the nature and gravity of its turnover.<br />Exit<br />Interview<br />
Pre-Retirement Interviews<br />The changing demographics of the workforce create unique challenges for an organization. There is a dramatic increase in the number of employees soon eligible for retirement combined with competition for limited talent. This means that organizations will have to adapt.<br />We provide pre-retirement interviews that afford your organization with valuable knowledge of work related intentions of the retirement-eligible workforce.<br />Conducted prior to a departure, these interviews determine if employees might be interested in continuing their employment with an alternative work schedule such as flexible hours, part-time, contract and project work.<br />This can form a part of an overall talent retention component crucial for your organization’s resource management. It will allow a better understanding of the motivations and desires of employees that are considering retirement.<br />Pre-retirement interviews can influence talent management strategies and policy development for hiring, training, succession planning and management practices.<br />Pre-<br />Retirement<br />Interview<br />
Engagement Interviews<br />Engagement interviews reduce the high cost of time and money spent on hiring and training new employees allowing your organization to better understand the needs and issues surrounding new staff.<br />We can assist your business in retaining, identifying and developing your talented workforce by conduction independent engagement interviews when your new employees have reached the 3 – 6 month mark of their employment.<br />Engagement interviews will allow you to comprehend the reasons why employees are disengaged and potentially exiting. They help you to develop new strategies in hiring and training processes, succession planning, communication, policies and procedures, on-boarding, etc.<br />Engagement<br />Interviews<br />
Continuance Interviews<br />Continuance interviews cater to your organization’s needs to effectively manage its talent. Often called ‘stay’ interviews they are designed to determine if one of your top performers is a risk to leave the organization. They are used to determine promotability, willingness to remain and your employees’ level of satisfaction.<br />Usually conducted after your employee has been in the organization for a number of years, continuance interviews act as an important fact finding tool to assist your talent management and succession planning programs. They help determine the current and future value proposition of important employees and can provide information to help you design on-boarding tactics.<br />Our consultants can assist you in developing and conducting continuance interviews that will provide your HR people with optimal information and value. The knowledge you receive from a continuance study will be used to implement beneficial approaches to talent retention.<br />Continuance<br />Interviews<br />
Alumni Tracking<br />Exit, pre-retirement, engagement and continuance interviews all be linked with alumni tracking.<br />Alumni can return to your organization and add value after furthering their development. It is important in our global business climate of workforce mobility and limited talent supply that you track your alumni and keep in touch with their career development. <br />As former employees and ambassadors for your organization, this provides an opportunity to maintain positive relationships.<br />Alumni<br />Tracking<br />
