Gaining a deeper understanding of your employee's Performance Style (how one does their work) and Ambitions (why they do their work) is essential when building high performing, make hiring decisions, choose who to promote into management roles, try to solve communication problems and more. A powerful way to gain this deeper understanding is through Talent Assessments.
Below is a graphic example of how we use a group of Talent Assessment from top performers in a job or role to create a Job Benchmark for that job/role. Now we can have an "ideal" for that job/role and it makes it much easier to find others who closely match that Job Benchmark. This reduces the "gut feel" factor and makes your hiring and promoting more based on data and reality.
At Garth Rose Consulting Group we have worked for nine years with more than 300 organizations who have run more than 4,000 assessment of their internal talent and their candidates for hire. Our talent assessments have help our clients get thousands of "the right people in the right seats on the bus."
