Case Studies

Developed and managed a high stakes recruitment process for a company. The training for the occupation cost $100 - 140,000 per year. The objective was to minimise the failure rate which was achieved - to one of the lowest in the industry. We won an HRINZ Merit Award for the process. The process has been productised and sold internationally to Australia, Dubai, Hong Kong, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa - achieving up to $1M per annum in revenues. In developing the process we quickly realised the importance of recruitment - getting the right people to apply and processing them quickly to retain their interest. We used Facebook, Linkedin as well as direct marketing and managed to do so with some of the lowest costs per applicant in NZ.

Developed and implemented graduate recruitment processes for some of NZs largest companies. The processes included development of competencies specific for the companies and graduate occupations, testing and personality assessment in prescreening and assessment centres for the final selection. The approach involved training line managers and human resource professionals in assessing candidates in practical exercises and integrating the results to make the final selection decisions.

Developed factory operator selection processes for an electronics and cable manufacturing companies which lead to lower turnover and higher productivity. The process involved identifying the key competencies for the role, appropriate tests and questionnaires, development of interview guides and manager training in both report interpretation and interviewing. Algorithms were developed to predict success in the role and integrated into a reporting tool.
