What We Do

Topgrading builds and maintains high performing teams through proven hiring, development, and promotion strategies.

 

Whether your company is searching for a new leader, replacing an executive team member, promoting a manager, or bringing on entry-level employees, we have the methods, training, and tools to help you hire with confidence.

Hiring Intelligence for Business Today

Most hiring processes today are broken.

Typical interview and selection practices don’t reveal enough about a candidate to determine whether they would actually succeed in a given role. And technology hasn’t done much to improve hiring practices: Applicant tracking systems merely aggregate candidates, and bots too often screen out highly qualified candidates.

 

Topgrading eliminates the failures of typical interview and selection methods.

Our methods infuse each step of the process with the substantive, detailed, and uniquely accurate information essential to making excellent hiring decisions and setting up your team for long-term success.
