Employee Assessment What keeps most owners and executives awake at night? They worry about their people—if the right people are in leadership positions; how they compare to the competition; how to motivate and retain the best people, and so on. In most cases, the key to success is having the right people in place and in the pipeline, so that no matter how the business climate evolves, you are doing better than the competition.
Employee Assessment is about getting to know your people better. It is useful in almost any business environment—in an up or down cycle, pre- or post-merger, during a changing of the guard or while developing a winning team. It is an objective, consistent and competency- based process that can be applied to large teams or to a single individual. The Crane Hobson team of experts includes full-time, dedicated assessment professionals, who have conducted hundreds of projects, as well as search professionals with experience in their client’s business.
Our process is custom designed to fit each client’s specific needs. In each case, however, we are able to quickly staff a major assignment with the right professionals, apply market-proven methodology and benchmark executives against the marketplace.
Human capital is the only sustainable competitive advantage—Employee Assessment helps our clients realize that advantage.
Leadership ConsultingA successfully completed search is only the beginning. In order to succeed in today’s competitive business environment, companies must aggressively manage their talent to ensure the right people are in the right place at the right time.
