Retain the best talent and build the best team
High staff turnover costs time and money. It damages culture and motivation.
The post-hire experience can be as important as the recruitment process in recruiting and retaining the best staff.
Assessing staff as they join can make it easier for employers to assemble a relevant and genuinely welcoming onboarding programme. They can accurately judge the support a new starter might require. Immediate and future training needs can be predicted.
By getting a clear picture on their existing knowledge base and skill set, employers can avoid costly training for things they can do already, and elements of the induction that aren’t necessary. Assessments can also identify high potential candidates and future leaders.
By ensuring that new recruits hit the ground running and engage with culture, productivity is boosted. When turnover is low, the costs and time associated with constant recruitment are reduced.
