Here’s a good one to start with…
If you use our specialised Assessment Process as part of your Hiring Process, we guarantee we will stop you hiring the wrong person, or you get your money back.*
Maybe you enjoy having to deal with all the problems, the conflict, the lost research/development/production time and all the financial costs that typically go with hiring the wrong person but we think our guarantee is a pretty good offer.
Would you be interested in that particular service?
Between us and our Associates, we provide almost all services, rooted in the discipline of Organisational Psychology, to what we consider are the highest standards. Any organisation which engages these services, does so because the value we add to certain processes is clear from the first engagement. We will never claim to be experts in every application of organisational psychology. For decades, we have focused on the areas that have an immediate and demonstrable positive effect on business success today and in the future, and which give our clients an ROI which is fast and clearly visible.
However, there is an aspect . This is not some arrogant, throwaway statement; it is based on what we have seen and learned over the last two decades. We are referring to the ability to assess candidates, to a level that is deeper and more insightful than anyone else is the service that we genuinely believe we do better than anyone else.
This applies to every type, and level, of role in every business sector. While we have significant experience working in almost every business sector, it is not necessary to possess an expert understanding of every industry, in order for us to add value. We are assessing people and while some industry sectors certainly differ greatly from each other, the characteristics that best serve a person working in a particular sector, are easily ascertained. These details, and many others, are used to inform the exact process that will be used. Part of our process is using psychometric assessments, which you will frequently see listed as a service on a HR Consultancy’s or Recruitment Agency’s website, but those have nothing to do with the service we offer.
Our ability to assess people is based on a psychological analysis of them, and the assessments they complete. The expertise underpinning our assessment services has been over 20 years in the making and it is still an on-going process. We believe that there is no limit to what we can learn.
We can, within a few hours, tell our clients what someone is going to be like in 6 months time both in terms of their behaviour and their abilities, such as strategic thinking. We don’t get everyone exactly right, no-one is perfect, but we’re never far off and, most of the time, we are correct.
What is it worth knowing 6 months in advance that the candidate who presented themselves brilliantly at interview, will not be a productive member of your R&D team? What is it worth to an early stage start-up, where this person represents 20% of your workforce?
In the grand scheme of things, it is worth a lot more to a start-up than to a well-established team in a multinational, but it’s just as irritating and time-consuming for the multinational to have to go through the whole hiring process again.
As we consider this out most premium, high-end service, we sign a contract with you, committing ourselves to your success. As we are a small consultancy, we only work with a certain number of clients, at any given time. We show our commitment by signing a contract, so we don’t think it is too much to ask for you to show your commitment by securing our services with a retainer, the level of which depends on how many people you expect to be hiring.
