Recruiting & Hiring Process

Have you made hiring mistakes? The cost of poor hire is estimated at three to five times annual compensation. These hiring mistakes usually happen due to not having the best practices and tools in place.

The Stop Selling Vanilla Ice Cream Process and its talent management system provide several unique methodologies that focus on making the right hire the first time.

  1. Strategy – SM Advisors clearly understands the strategy of your organization and the skill sets needed to execute it. With our outside perspective, in some cases we have greater clarity on what the organization needs than they do themselves.
  2. Understand the Team – SM Advisors understands the culture and dynamics of the team we are going to add a new member to, ensuring the best fit.
  3. Certified Behavioral Analysts – Through the use of behavioral assessments, SM Advisors provides you the information that you can’t obtain in interviews to make the best hiring decision. We can accurately measure a candidate’s soft skills, behaviors, motivators, values, capacities, competencies, emotional intelligence, intellectual intelligence, and thinking patterns required for superior performance.
  4. Job Benchmarking – This proprietary process clearly defines what the optimum performer looks like for the position. All candidates’ assessments are compared to the benchmark through a gap report to make the best hiring decision.
  5. Interview Strategies – Specific strategies will be developed for each interviewer and candidate. Focused strategies get you the right information to make the right hiring decision.
  6. Proven Process – SM Advisors recruiting and hiring process has multiple decision filters to ensure you make the right hire the first time.
