Real-world solutions from Competitive Edge HR...
Situation A :
The president of a small manufacturing firm needed to replace an employee who lacked the skills for success. There wasn’t an accurate job description, so we began with a job analysis and a new job description. To keep costs down, we jointly created a strategy to find candidates and develop interview questions. The client and his team implemented the strategy. RightPath Resources® Profiles helped analyze the top candidates and determine their strengths. Targeted questions by Competitive Edge HR improved the quality of the information from the reference checks.

We identified the key factors for success, and translated them into specific areas we should consider. Profiles were used to assess the person’s ability and willingness to develop salespeople, a key factor for success.
