Candidate Assessment

While recruiting the most technically qualified candidates is critical to a successful search, even more important is a thorough evaluation of the candidate's intangibles - the qualities that separate a solid manager from a great leader. Search Innovations conducts evaluations designed to ensure that the candidate has the necessary approach, skills and record of success to meet the client's needs. Through our partnership approach with clients, we dynamically determine the factors most critical for success in the position at hand. Based on that, we construct an evaluation framework to objectively measure for those factors. Some examples of those factors are:

  • Results Orientation
  • Managerial Skills
  • Leadership Skills
  • Decision-making Ability
  • Learning Ability
  • Managing Change
  • Problem Identification
  • Time Management
  • Interpersonal Skills
  • Planning & Organizational Skills
  • Customer Orientation
  • Strategic Thinking

By evaluating potential candidates along so many vectors, again tailored to our client's position requirements, we feel confident that we're able to construct a portrait of the true candidate.  This allows us to predict the high levels of performance that our hired candidates consistently display.
