Recruitment and Selection
High staff turnover is recognised by the industry as a perennial issue, the hidden costs of ongoing recruitment are consistently removing money from the sector, keeping costs high and impacting profitability.
AM Trait provides a working solution with useful information to help the business select the right candidate for the role and enable wise investment decisions.
The AM Trait Recruitment and Selection report provides a succinct overview of a candidate’s potential competencies and highlights subjects to explore in an interview process. In addition, individual-specific question prompts are included to assist the interviewer in finding out further details about the candidate and their competencies.
There is also an extended in depth version that also comes with telephone support as mentioned below.
Development of managers can be a costly investment on both time away from the business and the financial cost of the training. It has been proven that training creates more invested employees and returns for the business including length of stay and contribution to the organisation. The focus should therefore be around what will help to develop the individual’s needs effectively in order to maximise the investment being made.
The AM Trait Development report provides an in-depth analysis of the individual, highlighting areas of strength and weakness that can be used to identify specific development needs. This information will help determine the best routes for professional development and focus training in the most appropriate areas.
