PageGroup can conduct the following services to ensure you receive the highest quality candidate shortlist:
Behavioural Based Interviewing (BBI)
Each candidate that is registered on our database has been personally interviewed by a PageGroup consultant. We use BBI that focus on actions and behaviours, rather than subjective impressions, to make a more accurate assessment of a candidate’s suitability. Research indicates behavioural based interviewing is five times more likely to provide accurate predictions of future workplace behaviours than traditional interviewing techniques.
We conduct detailed reference checks and will provide a summary of the feedback to clients. The areas tested during the reference check include:
- Technical ability
- Interpersonal skills
- Planning and organisation
- Communication (written and verbal)
- Problem solving
- Areas of strength
- Areas for development
- Key achievements in role
- Reasons for leaving
- Would previous employer recommend and why?
Where appropriate, PageGroup verifies all professional qualifications and work permits for those candidates under serious consideration.
Provision of psychometric testing services can be organised through the strategic alliances PageGroup has established with industry specialists such as SHL.
We have associations with various online testing facilities that offer more than 150 computer-based, adaptive exams in a wide array of advanced technologies to identify the most suitable technical candidates.
Our Skillchecker tool now allows you to objectively gauge the digital competency of your next secretarial hire using standardised tests developed by research professionals.
