We live in the 365 24/7 Global Economy that avails many opportunities but equally a host of challenges. This dynamic is even more present in the highly competitive arena of Talent Acquisition. What is the shortest distance between the Acquisition Manager and the that next “excellent hire” that once again demonstrates to your organization your professional acumen and expertise?
Like anything it beginnings with a total passion for what you do every day. Having your eyes open wide and your ear to the ground. Small signals and nuances that others miss are many times the competitive advantage that brings you to the head of the class. The challenge is that there is just so much swirling information out there. At times it’s like trying to take a sip from a roaring fire hose.
The Best Market Talent exhibits very specific behaviors and possesses a list of position profile information that fills all the boxes. Sure they can talk the talk and even walk the walk but it does not reveal the motivational thinking of the individual that surely will be the single most important factor in their “fit” into your organization and their “personal culture” that they will add to Your Brand. The question becomes how does someone quickly and easily “lift the veil” to view the total candidate; warts and all blemishes?
There have been several paths. The is the usual due diligence and then an extensive round of lengthy interviews with your team. This is an expensive experience that possesses no sure level of reliability. Then there are the out sources personality experts and their battery of test. So “Rogerian” and 19th Century not to mention snobbishly overpriced. Then finally there is the 20th Century “Gold Standard” personality assessment. Wonderful in its time but its lengthy testing model does not fit well with 21st century behavior. Not to mention its extensive testing result protocol is a compilation of so much useless information that no one that I’ve asked knows how to interpret.
Having spoken to many managers and after thirty years studying the impact of psychometrics we developed an effective method. More than marketing our test based on its past record of success and living off our reputation from the previous seventy-five years, we set out to create a rapid, accurate assessment that could be taken in the privacy of your mobile device.
We found four basic Talent Typologies not sixteen that has been the gold standard in the 20th century assessment. Then enabled us to create an assessment that easily identifies the thinking behavior of the candidate. From this vantage point the ability to Talent Match your pool of applicants became much simpler.
In the collaborative world we operate within we also developed another psychometric measurement that revealed the level of Leadership and Relational Trust. This factor is another critical element in the Emotional Intelligence of the candidate and are the soft skills that they are going to bring into the heart of your team. This had a dramatic impact on the Talent Manager’s successful ability to bring sustainable,long-term new hirers to their brand.
So our Talent Type System produced a simple ten minute private, user friendly experience that provided the Talent Manager with a one-page report that actual benefited some excellent candidates as it levels the playing field to consider factors that others miss…. Your got to keep your eyes open all the time!
