Strengths-based Recruitment

We're in the business of transforming people so they can bring their whole selves to work

We want to encourage individuals to craft their own job spec and decide how they would like to utilise their time creatively by understanding their unique set of Strengths and live by 'interdependent rules of engagement©'

"The biggest gains businesses will see in the next 10 years will lie within hiring the right managers and maximising the strengths of every single employee"

Jim Clifton, GALLUP Chairman and CEO

What is Strengths Recruitment?

We believe assisting people to place themselves in the right roles & environment for them, based on their Strengths, has the potential for exponential growth of self and the organisation. This doesn’t mean we discount the candidate’s qualifications and experience. Instead this adds to the process to ensure value congruency within the environment and the organisation, as well as looking at how a person is naturally energised and inclined towards their role.

What is the alternative?

"Disengaged employees have 37% higher absenteeism, 18% lower productivity and 15% lower profitability" - Gallup

About Strengths Recruitment Interviewing

 

Once selection of candidates has been narrowed down, we ask candidates to take the Strengths Assessment, thereafter, one of our qualified and experienced Strength Coaches will join the company in their interview process.

We speak directly to an individual's intrinsic motivators, their Strengths and Talent Patterns, which brings about honesty, integrity and authenticity and affords people an opportunity to show who they really are.  

 

High performers work through their Strengths because this is where we are naturally energised, learn quicker and are highly motivated.

I first met Sam in January 2018. The company I was working for was looking for an Accounts Assistant but I was in the final stages of interviewing for a lecturer position, which I mentioned to Sam. She decided to interview me anyway to find out more about what I wanted to do with my life. In the end I turned down the opportunity she was offering and decided to try the lecturer position.

I thought that would be the end of it when in November 2018 Sam called again out of the blue and asked if I would be interested in a junior Implementation Consultant Position which had come up. Sam had remembered I was searching for new challenges and had applied for the lecturer position because I wanted something different from the Book-keeping.


I’d also been getting no responses from organisations relating to what I had studied towards, being Information Systems.  No one was prepared to take a chance on me. I was a mature student and had my degree in Information Systems, but it took someone with a completely different outlook to take a chance and look at what I had to offer in a new way.

Sam put me forward again for the available position and after some interviews and tests, including my Strengths Assessment, I was offered a position doing ERP Implementations. This is also the first time I am actually utilising my Strengths and the many skills I obtained throughout my degree, at the same time.

I think it was the way Sam chose to look at me as a candidate, as well as what my needs were as an employee, together with the requirement of the organisation. Her approach was holistic and just plain refreshing. This is just not something one encounters in most organisations. I am finally using such a broad skill set.

I have always known my strengths, but the Coaching Sessions, which are part of the recruitment process, have made me aware of how I use my Strengths, and not to let these overpower someone else’s, but rather to become intentional about trying to be interdependent.  


Also, not to be over reliant on only my dominant Strengths but to recognise and develop my secondary talents. I feel developing these will make me more complete as an individual and employee and as a partner and father. I feel the benefits could be far reaching beyond just being successful in my current position. All things are interconnected after all, as nothing acts in isolation.

Through the Strengths Awareness I have stopped only concentrating on my own Strengths and now look to others to bring their Strengths too, to assist me in tasks and/or to compliment my own Strengths. I am still relatively new at this, but I do feel I am moving in the right direction.


I would definitely recommend Strengths Recruitment and Coaching to my network.
