We all know the cost of a bad hire. It’s why The Pond works harder than any other recruitment agency to find you new hires that stick with your business longer (our current placement average is 4.4 years). And why we’ve launched a strength assessment service in association with leading licensed Gallup CliftonStrengths® coach, Jason Biggs.
Simply put, undertaking strength testing and assessments before you put any employment contracts on the table helps you make more informed hiring decisions. With Jason’s expertise to guide you every step of the way, you’ll gain valuable insights into the final candidates’ behavioural patterns, the best way to manage them, and how well they fit with your existing team and business.
Chances are you’ll take a significant step toward increasing business productivity and performance too.
CliftonStrengths® identifies candidates’ talent DNA
Discover an amazing online tool based on decades of research into the talents of the world's most successful people.
Already completed by 24 million people worldwide, CliftonStrengths® is used by everyone from Fortune 500 companies to tech startups to small businesses to develop career paths and grow teams with directed and understood expertise.
There are 34 CliftonStrengths® themes sorted into four domains – strategic thinking, relationship building, influencing, and executing. Together they explain a simple but profound element of human behaviour: what's right with people. Individually, each theme gives candidates ways to describe what they naturally do best or what they might need help from others to accomplish.
Strictly speaking, CliftonStrengths® was designed as a development tool rather than a hiring tool. As such, we don’t treat it as the be-all and end-all of our recruitment process. But it is a very handy tool to have nonetheless when you get down to the last 3 candidates and you need to make a call on who is the best for the role.
