  • Develop a Mission Statement - Hiring

    Most companies have a Mission Statement. Do you have a Mission Statement - Hiring.

    It is a short, non-discriminatory expression of the employee characteristics you need to fulfill your Mission Statement. It helps managers to focus on those needs when hiring.

    We help companies develop their Mission Statement - Hiring.

  • Strategic Hiring Forms

    We have developed two strategic hiring forms - Job Outlook™ and the Interview Evaluation form. What is different?

    Most job descriptions provide only the most basic information. i.e., duties, responsibilities, travel etc. Similarly, most interview evaluation forms are generic and not strategic. (i.e., asked good questions, seemed prepared, etc.)

    We do not replace the job descriptions. Rather, we enhance them.

    Our copyrighted forms take 15 minutes to complete. The Job Outlook™ form captures the hiring manager’s strategic thoughts about their team and the open position. Managers sign the form. That strategic information is carried though the interview process with the enhanced Interview Evaluation form.
