Hiring & Advisor Acquisition Solutions
Why This is Important to You
Hiring the wrong person can cost you up to three times the individual’s annual compensation and is a multidimensional setback.
You not only absorb the direct expense associated with recruiting, training, and supporting the new employee, but you, your clients and other employees also feel the impact of the turnover through less tangible means, such as:
- Negative affects on customer service
- Lost revenue
- Increased employee workloads
- Tarnished business reputation
- Potential law suits and employee relations issues
- A host of other issues stemming from having the wrong person on the job.
Statistics indicate that half of new employees remain in their jobs for less than six months.
Wealth management is a relationship business with your client-facing employees promoting your institution’s reputation and image with every client interaction. That’s why choosing the right employee the first time should never be left to chance or entirely placed on the shoulders of managers who may not even have a prescribed interviewing process or evaluation tool.
The decision of whom you choose to entrust with your vaunted client relationships is likely the most important decision you make in running your business.
How We Work With You
We work closely with you through the three phases of the recruiting process – Sourcing, Selecting and Securing the most talented candidates.
We help you develop an optimal candidate profile. We then work with you to identify the most prolific sources of candidates fitting that profile and the most effective methods for approaching them.
Through our proprietary interviewing and evaluation process, we examine candidates to determine if they possess the key attributes necessary to fulfill the duties of the position. With over 50 quantitative and qualitative questions we measure candidates on three primary levels - Competency, Character and Chemistry.
We not only identify the job skills and what the person knows how to do, but we define who the person is through those personal values, attributes and behavioral tendencies that drive job performance.
We provide you with a comprehensive written evaluation that includes specific recommendations, highlighting the candidate’s strengths, weaknesses and areas of concern.
And, we help you understand what it is you need to do to have the most talented applicants accept your offer without paying an absorbent price.
Additionally, we provide services to help you successfully value, acquire and integrate established advisors/practices.
