HUNT

Knowing Who to Call

Our asset to ensure full market coverage is our rolodex, built one call at a time over 20 years. That’s a lot of calls. We’ve gotten to know everybody in our niche, thousands, including the strongest players out there.  And they know us too.

We talk to the right ones.

And fast.

ASSESS

Controlling for Emotions

We leverage good judgement by controlling for emotions in candidate assessment. We run every candidate through advanced, predictive psychometric testing. Success in any job is overwhelmingly predicted by a combination of only three factors: aptitude, orderliness and industriousness.

So that’s what we focus on.

SECURE

Closing, Motivating, Retaining

At senior levels the worst approach is a one size fits all. We help you design a package that’s right for the role’s risk profile, the successful candidate’s risk profile including their specific life circumstances, and is current with the market.

The Art – Telling Your Story

We are street smart and we like the hunt. We tell your story, detail your company’s uniqueness to the right people . . . and we do it with business sense, depth and a little humour. We get the strongest candidates that the market offers in front of you, and fast. We tell your story.

The right people need to hear a compelling pitch:

  • We deliver strong messages, from an understanding of the big lines of your industry, to your company’s competitive profile, to the role’s success metrics and day-to-day deliverables.
  • We are finance people, we are business people and we like the hunt.

You get one good shot. Who’s telling your story?

The Science – Controlling for Emotions

We have good judgement and so do you. We leverage that gift of judgement with advanced, predictive psychometric testing to eliminate bias, the #1 recruitment pitfall and part of the human condition. We control for emotions.

Cognitive aptitude is one of the most accurate predictors of job success:

2Xmore than personal interviews
3Xmore than experience
4Xmore than education

In fact aptitude, orderliness and industriousness are by far the top three predictors of job success.

So that’s what we invest in assessing.

The Win – Closing, Motivating, Retaining

Salary guides are worse than useless. They guide you to a mediocre compensation package/personality mismatch. Some roles require a risk taker for success and others require a risk averse for success. The ends of the spectrum are equally valuable but must be treated differently to get the most out of people. Spend your money on what matters.

Compensation drive behaviour:

  • Be deliberate to drive the behaviour you want
  • Ensure consistency among role, candidate and package
  • Spend money only on perks & benefits your candidate values
  • Align interests, drive outcomes and pay market while containing costs

Design your outcomes.
