Solutions

  • Talent Acquisition

    Kensington provides talent acquisition services aligned with your needs. From working with you to develop a solid position description, source candidates, interviewing, incorporating best in class tools like the PXT Select™ assessment, and even helping with onboarding new employees, we provide as many, or as few, services that you want. Whether your organization is a startup, a small or large business, or a non-profit, each service is customized to your organization to ensure that it is aligned with your goals.

  • Training & Development - Best Practices in Behavioral Interviewing

    Studies show that traditional interviewing alone is only 10% predictive of future on-the-job behavior, often resulting in poor hires, lower employee engagement, and higher turnover. Even the best leaders often struggle with interviewing.

    Becoming skilled in behavioral interviewing can increase the predictability of employee behavior by 500%! We help our clients improve their selection process by teaching best practices using behavioral interviewing. Understanding and mastering how to ask behavioral questions is only the first step. Arguably, the most important part is understanding how to evaluate the candidate responses so that the information can be used to help determine fit in a role. Better fit often leads to higher employee engagement and reduced turnover costs.

    Kensington can help you improve the interviewing skills of hiring managers, reduce turnover and improve employee engagement. Our solutions are custom designed to align with your organizational goals.

  • Temporary HR Professional Services or Full-Service HR Outsourcing

    Need coverage while an HR professional is on leave? Kensington provides full service HR services from coverage of one position while your employee is on extended leave, to full-service HR outsourcing.
