Recruit & Select A-Players

Finding good people is a challenge for all employers, but especially for small business. We work with you to design and launch an ongoing, semi-automated and data-driven selection system that repeatedly attracts A-Players, yields the best candidates, and gives you the tools to know that you are making the right decision before you hire.

An ideal selection process includes these elements:

DESCRIBE YOUR “EMPLOYER BRAND”

  • Applicants want an employer Culture that matches their values and is a “great place to work”
  • Describe what makes yours different and appealing to just the Right People

SHARE A REALISTIC JOB PREVIEW

  • Give applicants a true picture of the job role- not just duties but responsibility, key results expected, role in decisions, key contacts
  • Entice “passive” employed candidates to apply because your job sounds better than theirs!

ATTRACT THE IDEAL CANDIDATE

  • Clearly outline the Ideal Candidate’s skills and competencies so you are wooing the Right People
  • Fill up your inbox with Ideal Candidates who are excited about your opportunity “This is the job for me!”

EASIER, FASTER, BETTER SCREENING

  • Stop wading through “the pile” of too many applicants- discourage unqualified and barely interested from applying
  • Improve the clarity and appeal of your job posting to attract the A Players and repel the C Players
