We are big fans of profiling. Businesses are still slow to adopt this as part of a recruitment strategy and often reserve it for the most senior hires.
In reality the way to utilise it is profile the best performers in your business at every level, store that profile and compare a new candidates profile against it. This way you will know how good or bad this person is potentially going to perform for you.
At Jepson Holt we facilitate profiling, get in touch and Phil or Richard will be able to share the benefits and talk you through a trial.
This month, Deutsche’s US corporate finance division has begun screening students for the behaviours identified in its best junior staff, so it can hire high performers from more diverse backgrounds who stay at the bank for longer. “You can’t trick the machine,” he says of the 20-minute behavioural test that is carried out online. “We’ve asked juniors to try to trick it and it still catches you”.
