Step 1: Job Scorecard
An organized, structured hiring approach starts by painting a clear picture of success. We begin any engagement by thoroughly analyzing your business, your culture, and the specific role objectives. We then create a detailed Job Scorecard - a list of measurable accountabilities, core values, and behavioral competencies that describe a person who will perform at a high level in the role.
Step 2: Deep Candidate Insights
Step 3: Candidate-Arranged Reference Calls
A key element of the Topgrading Assessment is the Candidate-Arranged Reference Calls. Clients let candidates know in advance that they will be asked to arrange reference calls with recent managers and often a couple of peers and direct reports. This step, particularly planting the seed early, encourages candidates to be transparent.
Step 4: Candidate Analysis
We analyze the rich, full data unearthed by the Topgrading Interview in relation to the Job Scorecard criteria. This allows a uniform, rigorous analysis and an accurate conclusion as to whether a candidate will be a high performing addition to the team and a great fit for your culture.
