Selection Days are a very thorough and experiential way of finding candidates that are the perfect fit for your company culture.
The beauty of a Selection Day is that you get under the skin of the candidates and see them showcasing their talents instead of talking about them!
To do this we look at three distinct areas which will determine the success of the role:
can they do the job
do they seem keen to come and work for you
does their personality fit that of your business
STEPS OF SELECTION DAYS
Most interviews are very formal – but not here – and in order to create a relaxed atmosphere it helps if you get people doing something which is totally unrelated to the job and for a couple of minutes to just have some fun.
It’s timed (much like all the exercises we run) and is usually to a format which relates to the job – you may be asked to talk about “someone you admire” or “what does excellent customer service mean to you” – candidates also find it much easier to talk about something from memory and the introductions are always much more natural rather than being put on the spot and talking about career highlights or their work history.
The exercise is provided to the client at the conclusion of the day together with the candidate’s CV.
Outstanding results from the recruitment process and in turn retention rates for your business.
We achieve great success with Selection Days with most event roles however, our area of focus is largely Sales and Marketing Roles where an 80%+ success and retention rate is achieved!
