Recruitment and selection

Use personality insights to select new talent and identify future potential

Effective selection processes give your organisation a better way to make informed hiring decisions, pinpointing the best candidates based on your specific job requirements.

How to improve selection

Organisations often face pressures to make quick recruitment decisions with minimal financial impact, or have  long-standing traditions prescribing what job selection looks like, whether graduate recruitment or headhunting top leaders. These pressures can hamper good selection decisions. What’s needed are more objective selection tools, wielded with expertise, to transform the process by better predicting job performance. Assessment centres for new hires and high-potential employees take the lottery element out of selection, delivering more dependable and cost-effective recruitment.

Effective selection delivers

  • Improved job performance, better results
  • Cost-effective recruitment – better use of time and resources
  • Better fit between candidates and job requirements
  • Confident recruitment and promotion decisions
  • Higher company morale and retention rates
  • Enhanced employer brand
