  2. 2. If 80% of successful business performance can be attributedto the best 20% of employees,how can you ensure you get the best? Selecting the right candidate is crucial to the success of your business, but the traditional CV-and- interview-based selection process yields very limited information about the candidates, and can therefore seriously limit your chances of making a successful recruitment decision. Using structured assessment techniques can establish more clearly what a person is like, what they’re like to work with, how they might fit into your existing team and potentially lead your business in the future. This provides more certainty to decision makers, helps prevent costly mistakes and increases the chances of employees being successful in their jobs. By using a range of fair and objective assessment techniques that include psychometric tests, profiling tools and targeted interviews we can delve beyond the CV to establish capability and potential, thereby: - enabling you to select the right candidate for the position - finding untapped potential - helping with effective succession planning within the organisation “The chances are good that up to - identifying real and specific 66% of your company’s hiring development needs among your staff decisions will prove, in the first twelve - planning for change months, to be mistakes.” Peter Drucker, Management Selection & Assessment Consultant Process Review We can review your recruitment process and make recommendations for improvements to ensure it represents value for money and is fair and effective. This includes addressing diversity related issues and ensuring that your process communicates your organisation’s values.
