“Position Profiling”

A Business Owner’s Formula to Clarifying Exactly Who You Truly Want in A Role.

Business Owners are often too busy to spend time clarifying exactly who should be in a certain role. Vetting resumes becomes a challenging gamble because 37% of résumés have been embellished and 25% of employees make up their work history (1).

An attractive resume is often enough to move a candidate through to an interview which has a 76% likelihood of failure(2).   The Interview is often like a game of charades with candidates articulating well-crafted statements to inspire, however they provide very little true insight.

Finding and selecting the best employees is a psychological game, however it is one of the most important decisions for a business owner in their entrepreneurial career. If they make the wrong decision the business struggles, and the owner becomes stressed and frustrated.

Dr Stephen Covey the author of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People said, “Start with the end in mind.” In recruitment this means clarify exactly who you truly want in a role before launching the campaign.

The Position Profiling programme has been tried and tested over 15 Years and the core philosophy is that the right person for a role is someone who has previously achieved similar desired goals and behaviours. 

The Position Profile can be given to your HR team or a recruitment company with the knowledge you know exactly what you want. Additionally, the Position Profile provides you the specific interview questions, and the answers to expect, that are 100% aligned to the profile and person you are looking for.

Finally, the Position Profile is a results-based document that has been rigorously tried and test over the years.
