It's Tough to Pick the Winners

Getting recruitment right is tough.  We’ve all made ‘bad hires’ at some point in our careers be that the ‘dishonest hire’, the ‘under-performing hire', the ‘culturally wrong hire’ or the plain ‘ineffectual hire’. 
                   
It’s never easy to ‘spot the winners’ but there are management tools out there to help increase your chances of making the right hiring decisions.

Recent research from the CIPD shows that personality profiling is used in just over one-third[i] of recruitment processes.  Aaron Wallis is offering you the chance, at no cost, to investigate refining your own recruitment process by introducing personality questionnaires.Sample Interview Aid Image

Personality questionnaires are designed to strip away the interview facade of potential employees and help you to build a top-performing team.  Our interview profile is a validated and powerful eight-page report that addresses essential traits in the workplace (see image for details of the traits). 

We think you’ll agree that it will provide a clear, simple and easy to follow guide that will help you conduct a structured, more insightful and professional interview.

This is a simple invitation with ‘no strings attached’.  We’d simply like you to sample the Aaron Wallis service so that we can learn more about your business and help get recruitment right for you.

To take advantage of this opportunity and to claim your complimentary interview aid simply click here and complete the short online form.  Within one working day, we will then contact you for a five-minute  consultation to set that up for you.  The resulting report will be delivered straight to your mailbox.

You may wish to take the questionnaire on yourself to see how powerful it can be or perhaps even on a forthcoming interviewee.

So put us to the test and see how Aaron Wallis can help you to ‘spot the winners’. 

We look forward to hearing from you,

P.S. If you’d like us to set up more than one personality questionnaire just let us know.  A link to a sample guide can be found here: http://ittybitty.bz/free-interview-aid

Aaron Wallis Golf Day June 21st 2013

I would like to make you aware of the Aaron Wallis Golf Tournament which is happening on Friday June 21st at The Bedford golf Club, Great Denham (on the outskirts of Bedford).  'The Bedford' is a really interesting and challenging course for both beginners and middle handicap golfers alike and easily accessible from all parts of the Home Counties.

Here at Aaron Wallis we thought it would be a good opportunity for clients to take time out of their busy schedules to enjoy a game of golf and to mix with other members of the business community in fun and informal surroundings regardless of their ability to hit the ball 250 yards or putt in from off the green!

The format of the day will be 18 holes of golf starting in the morning in groups of four people with prizes on offer such as the longest drive, nearest the pin, Stapleford winner, and as always, the winner of the wooden spoon which should give everybody a chance of winning a prize!

If you are a hiring manager of either finance or sales staff and would like to take a break from your busy week and mix with business colleagues in a relaxed and friendly way whilst getting some exercise too, then please contact Giles Phillips on 01908 886124 or email me on giles.phillips@aaronwallis. co.uk. Places will be limited to 32 entrants so please respond quickly to guarantee your place for what should be a great day’s golf.

I look forward to hearing from you shortly, Cheers!  Giles
