The Results-Based Hiring® Process
The Results-Based Hiring® Process starts with a simple scenario: A year from today, you’re sitting across the table from your new hire for their first performance review. What business results did they need to achieve over the previous year for you to be thrilled with their performance?
Your results expectations are integral to our recruiting efforts, because research shows that top performers are drawn to challenge. But high productivity and long-term employee retention can only occur when candidates also “fit in” to your culture.
We don’t rely on finding top performers with all the right skills and cultural values in our database, nor do we expect them to respond to job advertising. Instead, we thoroughly research the potential candidate pool, and directly contact hundreds of people within days of launching your search.
Before you walk into your first candidate interview, we brief you on the market factors that will affect your ability to retain your new hire. In this, and every other step of the hiring process, we serve as your partners in risk management, helping you make a rigorous, fully informed decision without stress or gamesmanship.
What Association Leaders Say About Us
AAHC has used Staffing Advisors for all of our significant hires over the past several years. They have consistently been a pleasure to work with – knowledgeable in their field, responsive to both us and applicants, and thoughtful in their advice as we work through the process. We were reluctant to give up ownership of the recruitment phases of hiring, but Staffing Advisors has saved us considerable time and effort, and brought significant added expertise and guidance to the process.
I recommend them highly.
- Elizabeth Gemoets, Chief Operating Officer, Association of Academic Health Centers
In my work with two different associations, I’ve engaged Staffing Advisors to fill almost twenty positions over the past four years.
Bob Corlett and his team have an innovative approach to their work that is evident from the start. Fully engaged at the strategic level, the team achieves a solid understanding of organizational directions before approaching the actual position needs. From there, Bob has a unique ability to spot potential problems or challenges in any position description. Through a series of expert questioning, he has an uncanny ability to know where more work needs to be done in order to make the position description as strong as possible and attract the proper talent. Other recruiters may say they do this, but working with Bob and his team is a learning experience, not just a process.
If you are serious about wanting organizational change and are willing to stretch your own way of thinking, you will not regret hiring Staffing Advisors.
