What problem are we solving?
The recruitment services market today has been commoditised to the point where both customers and recruiters have the worst of all outcomes.
From the customer perspective, more time sifting through resumes, unsure about their accuracy, trying to determine who is suitable and without the tools or knowledge to make appropriate selection choices. The result is lower quality of staff, lower performance, higher turnover, lower retention rates, higher direct and indirect costs for staffing.
From the recruiter perspective, contingent search means they are driven to find resumes and adjust them to get force a quick decision. There is no time to investigate and evaluate, focus is only on the sale and if it takes too long, abandon the effort and move on to the next opportunity. There is no real support for the customer, no real support for the candidates, more importantly no real product warranty. Buyer beware!
In practise, most people are hired for their skills but are fired for their behaviours. The majority of people involved in the hiring process only focus on the skills portion of the equation. They may determine that the new hire can do the work but they have no idea if that person will do the work. People do not have the skills or the tools to be objective and analyse the fit of the candidate.
Through the TalentConnect process we ensure that the people nominated for selection not only can do the work but will do the work. To underpin the process, we offer our clients a 12 month Guarantee of replacement free of charge should the chosen candidate leave. No other search firm offer this guarantee. We guarantee that we find the right person who will do the work and stay with the company for the long term because that person matches the company requirement not only for the role but culturally as well.
Why are we so confident?
Over the past few years we have consistently achieved 94-96% retention rates when we apply the principles of the TalentConnect process. Most of our own CIS staff have gone on to find permanent employment with our customers after one or two years because they are viewed as being good performers that fit into the customer organisation.
The TalentConnect process combines, science, technology, recruiter expertise and a system to analyse and compare candidates' suitability to the role. A role that is well defined and profiled specifically for the customer company.
What is TalentConnect?
TalentConnect is an award-winning technology platform that matches the candidates to the requirements of the organisation through analysis of the role, the company culture, technical and competency skills and individual behavioural profile all presented on a secure platform that can be accessed anywhere at any time.
TalentConnect uses a range of assessment tools which include videos, psychometric charts, benchmarking, CV analysis, background checks and unique insights to each candidate provided to the customer before an interview takes place. By the time these candidates are put forward for review they have been effectively qualified for the role and are backed by our unique guarantee
Each candidate prepares a short video presentation where they highlight their strengths and key features of their experience that would add to the role and differentiate themselves. The customer gains valuable insight into the style behaviour and approach of the candidate and how this may feature in their own organisation.
Candidates are benchmarked based on the relative responses to the competency questions selected by the customer and compared relative to their salary expectations
The behavioural characteristics of the individual are compared to the ideal candidate profile and the strength of the match is shown. This allows customer to gain a perspective on individuals and provides insight into how they will perform relative to their core profile. Further insights are gained from the detailed evaluation. Support questions are offered to the customer to so that a deeper understanding can be obtained in areas that are important in overall performance.
