Recruiting

      Procedure of recruiting

      Start

      Our consultants are trained to make professional use of psychological findings. They advise you on the most adequate test procedures for your purpose, based on a profile of specific requirements for the vacant position that is developed according to your criteria.

      Tests

      It is always possible to add test modules or questions that you have already been using, helping you save valuable time.

      Results

      Feedback

      Regardless of the outcome, all participants receive detailed feedback, making the procedure beneficial to all parties involved. There are no additional costs for the candidates.

      Newplacement

      We support you both in the expansionary phases of your operation and in phases of reorganization, including the associated measures to reduce personnel.

      Newplacement ensures a low-conflict separation process and demonstrates a sense of responsibility towards your employees. This usually resonates positively internally as well as externally and helps create a favorable image for your company.

      Our consultancy coaches employees and strengthens their orientation and integration in the job market. We offer professional support, but do not actively assist in any specific search efforts.

      WE OFFER

      • Analysis of target audiences with respect to industries and tasks
      • Information about different approaches to job search (newspapers, internet, personnel consulting, etc.)
      • Preparation of informative application documents (letter & CV), perfecting content and layout
      • Application training, simulation and interview briefing
      • Best practice examples for unsolicited applications
      • Options to place a personal profile in online career portals

      Testing Procedures

      By offering systematic testing procedures, we support you in hiring a suitable candidate.

      We make use of technical assessments, such as language or IT skills, as well as of standardized psychological evaluations, determining aptitude, performance, personality or motivation.

      The respective method is chosen based on established scientific principles; on these foundations, we can draw valid and reliable conclusions.

      Cooperating with national and international providers, we are able to offer the appropriate testing procedure for clarifying almost any question. A connection to the professional context and the compliance of the partaking candidates are decisive factors in the selection of methods.

      We consider the consistently positive feedback of our clients and of the tested candidates an encouragement for our method, combining scientifically standardized testing procedures with an approach that takes the personality of the candidates and their potential working environment into account.
