Quickly Expand Recruiting CapabilitiesA rapidly growing telecommunications company faced an immediate need for on-site recruiting assistance to meet aggressive staffing goals and to fill weekly training sessions to capacity. It found itself short-handed in the recruiting area when an internal recruiter had to take an unexpected leave of absence.
Customized Training Incorporating Core CompetenciesThe Chatfield Group provided an on-site recruiting expert to source candidates while limiting the use of contingency firms. Our recruiter phone-screened and interviewed candidates, consulted with hiring managers, and checked references.
Key Benefits: All slots were filled with high-caliber employees, peak-season service requirements were met, and retention of new hires improved by 50% compared with the prior hiring period.
Broaden Talent PoolA large consulting firm faced intense competition for the top-caliber hires it needed to preserve its position as a premier consultancy. Internal development and peer-group hiring alone were failing to fill the hiring pipeline.
The firm needed to reach out to candidates from industry. It also needed a reliable method for assessing capabilities needed to be implemented fast.
Train Hiring Managers with Competency-Based Selection & Assessment ModelIn a series of three-day workshops, The Chatfield Group taught the consulting firm’s U.S.-based hiring managers how to evaluate candidates using a sophisticated competency-based assessment model.
The Chatfield Group assembled a team of experts in assessment, training and competency-based selection processes to conduct the workshops, which included behavioral interviewing techniques and practice interviews as well as videotaped feedback.
