Getting, Guiding, and Keeping the Best and Brightest
In the book Good to Great, author Jim Collins explains how the truly superior companies first get the best and brightest on board, and then together this exemplary team decides where to direct the enterprise. Get the right people on the bus, sitting in the right seats, be rigorous in removing those who don’t belong, and then decide where to drive it. Achieving this requires more than instinct and a flair for conducting job interviews. Fortunately, tools once available and affordable by only the largest firms can now help any size corporation select and guide its people to greatness.

Predicting how a candidate will act in your business environment and tailoring his/her assessment to specific job requirements increases the probability of a successful hire. Added to a thoughtful interview and vetted references, results from an accurate, online behavioral assessment program will help your firm select the best and the brightest.
