A big “Bravo!” to our honored clients and all of the Top 150 Privately Held Companies – we know earning this achievement was not an easy task!
We also know some of the secrets to becoming a top company – and would like to share that information with you. We have provided some FREE tools for you below.
A Harvard Business Review study revealed that companies who invest in talent management outperform the competition in all measures of business – including Earnings Per Share and Gross Profit Margin. This holds true for private companies as well. That’s why it’s no coincidence that we work with so many of the St. Louis Business Journal’s Top 150 Privately Held Companies. The success of these companies is undoubtedly both the result of and a testament to their commitment to talent management and ensuring they have the right people in the right roles.
We have been working with companies from the Fortune 1000 and elite lists like the Top 150 for more than a half century, and we know the challenges businesses like yours face every day. We also understand the importance of your culture to both your employees and your customers, and that every company is unique.
From assessing the playfulness of a frontline toy store employee to discovering the mathematical skills and entrepreneurial spirit of a financial advisor, we have the expertise to help you lead sooner and succeed faster and we we can help you identify and develop the talent you need to support your company’s specific strategy.
One of the most common mistakes companies make in hiring is not crystalizing the complete job requirements. Not just the standard requirements – such as skills, education, and background – but the often overlooked requirements like what behavioral characteristics are necessary for a particular position. Ensuring you have the best fit between your employees, their skills and behaviors, and your culture is at the center of all we do. We do assessment testing, 360 surveys, feedback, consulting, leadership training, sales training, team building – and basically anything that can help an employee be better and an employer achieve better results.
All of our services are based on our Dimensional® Model of Behavior™ which helps you learn why people behave the way they do – and how you can best work with the behaviors you encounter.
