Having explored the market for the best employee engagement tools; we discovered an Employee Engagement Survey which we found to be a game changer.

Capture the intelligence embedded within your organisation, identify where your company stands and then take action and watch your employee engagement grow.

In an age where hiring decisions must be justified, psychometric profiling contributes a key element of science to an interview process. This has often relied on ‘gut feel’ and synergies between a recruiter and interviewee. Personality profiling is common practice and those who use it believe it gives an objective overview of a candidate’s character, strengths, opportunities for development and working style.
Our Psychometric Profiling is ideal for… organisations that don’t believe in “chancing it” when it comes to hiring.
If your current exit interview process is conducted by your internal HR or a business manager, then the task is a pointless one. The purpose of an exit interview is to establish true reasons for leaving and business improvement suggestions. These findings can be priceless. It has been proven that employees open up considerably more when the exit interview is conducted by a 3rd party.
Our Exit Interviews are ideal for… organisations that see value in business improvement and learning from their leavers.
