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 Business Leaders Say About Us
We’ve been working with Bob Corlett and Staffing Advisors for several years now. What started as simple recruiting for specific positions has evolved into them managing an ongoing recruiting process that has been highly effective. They have proven to be highly reliable at finding a broad range of talent from C-Level positions all the way down to field technicians and manufacturing workers. They have literally changed the face of our workforce and placed more than fifty qualified applicants in our organization.
By developing job specific hiring blueprints and aggressively vetting the applicants, our staff is left with the simple task of interviewing a pool of pre-qualified candidates which significantly reduces the stress and time commitment inherent to this process. We’ve been very satisfied with the results and knowing that we can fill any open position quickly has allowed our team to grow faster than we could have without Staffing Advisors help. The team led by Aileen Hedden is closely engaged in our strategic staff planning and they have created a process of maintaining a continual pipeline of candidates who are ready when we need them. This recruiting process is now a significant advantage that we enjoy over our competition in a way that we never could have achieved on our own.
I recommend them unconditionally (and often do).
- David Stone, Chief Executive Officer, Kensington Glass Arts
Staffing Advisors has a wonderful process that really helped us articulate our needs for two key positions. It was refreshing to see the speed of the process and the quality of the candidates presented. We knew immediately that we had people who would be a great fit with our culture.
