We Get People
What’s to get, you say? People are very complex.
Companies spend billions of dollars every year to get people. (That’s billions with a “B”.)
It’s money spent to find them. It’s money to interview them. It’s money to select them. It’s money to on-board them. It’s money to train them when they didn’t have everything the company thought they knew before the company hired them. It’s money to motivate them.
It’s even money to let them go, (when they don’t want to be motivated).
And on and on…pretty soon you’re talking about a lot of money. That’s where the “B” comes in.
We’ve built rigorous, comprehensive and predictive processes that allow our clients to make the right decisions about the right people. Whether it’s finding and selecting the right executive or assessing who the client already has to identify their optimum assignments. We find that “Superior Performers”, as defined by the client with our help, can find their way out if dropped into the middle of a jungle that may be the business. (Remember, A Message to Garcia)
