What is strengths-based recruitment?
Strengths recruitment simply put is about finding and placing people in roles where they have the best natural energy and motivation. By identifying and assessing what motivates and energises candidates in addition to their experience and competency, we support you to hire more engaged, motivated employees who are likely to stay longer in post and reach high performance in their appointed role.
We are one of a few organisations in the UK that specialise in strengths recruitment. Our unique strengths methodologies go beyond finding and placing a candidate. We work in partnership with our clients to design and define recruitment and selection processes that will not only find candidates that have the skills, capabilities and experience to do the job but people who will also be highly energised, motivated and engaged by the role.
Key benefits of strengths recruitment include:
- Genuine insight into candidates and you are able to achieve a better fit with the organisation and role.
- Those employed are more likely to stay in the job and have increased motivation, engagement and performance.
- Saves money and time across the organisation by reducing staff turnover and increasing employee performance.
- Improves staff retention and increases business performance.
- It helps to identify individual and team development needs.
- It is a robust and evidence based process that delivers proven results.
- Candidates enjoy the interview more, rejected candidates understand why they haven’t been progressed and overall it can improve the candidate experience and benefit the employer brand and reputation.
