The only thing worse than a bad hire is the bad hire you could have avoided by using the right candidate assessment; one custom-built for the BV/LS professionals you want to hire.
If you have seen a bad hire up close, no one needs to remind you of the cost. Just for reference, though, DOL estimates that cost to be about 30% of first-year earnings. A big chunk of your profit on that person, in other words.
Understandably, practice leaders focus on predictors like Technical Skills, Job Knowledge, and Work Experience/History. The Borrowman Baker BV Candidate Assessment gives you a different look at your candidates. It focuses on predictors like Thinking Style, Behavioral Traits and Interests, giving you a clearer picture of how the person matches to the job. In a nutshell: fit.
Gallup data suggest that a key attribute of high performing individuals is that they are in roles where the expectations of the job align with their innate talents. In other words: fit.
The Borrowman Baker BV Candidate Assessment was developed from over 20 years of research and is the only talent analytics customized to the BV/LS profession. It gives you actionable data about your candidate’s cognitive abilities, behavioral traits, and interests. It fills in the gap between the resume and the interview.
Your candidate will complete a multiple-choice, online assessment. Most candidates set aside about an hour to complete it. Some may need more time; others require less. You get a user-friendly readout that benchmarks your candidate against a range of scores for others at the same level in a BV/LS practice, together with suggested interview questions to help you dig deeper.
