Proven Track Record
Our firm has earned an excellent reputation in recruiting for over 20 different industries and for positions ranging from inside sales to national sales managers…with over a 15-year track record.
There are certain unique characteristics to look for when hiring salespeople vs. other employees. First of all, salespeople are a direct profit source for a company – nothing happens until a sale is made. If salespeople do not perform, a business loses customers and eventually goes out of business. Secondly, salespeople, unlike other employees, are measured at the end of each month for their sales productivity.
Sales recruiting is a difficult task because salespeople have to overcome a lot of daily rejection and adversity to win new sales. Competition sometimes is fierce. Because of the difficult task of selling, sales as a profession has one of the highest turnover rates of any profession. One study indicates that the average turnover rate for salespeople for all industries is approximately 20%.
Hire the Top 20% in Sales
By using our Sales Assessment test you can accurately measure the top 20% of sales candidates who often create 80% of a company’s sales. We can be fooled by a person’s interviewing skills, a nice-looking resume, and even some good references but there is a better way.
A study conducted by John Hunter, PhD., at Michigan State University, found that the personal interviewing process is only 14% accurate in predicting a successful hire. However, when an assessment test is used, accuracy for hiring the right candidate increases to 75%.
A Sales “Hunter” or a Sales “Farmer”?
The assessment tool will clearly indicate if the sales candidate is a true “hunter” or will be more effective as a “farmer.” It will also show you that they may not be effective in either role…eliminating costly hiring mistakes.
Our Sales Assessment Test measures a sales candidate’s true ability to sell. It provides an objective measurement from 1 (worst) to 10 (best) for these key characteristics of a person’s sales skills: Assertiveness, Sociability, Patience, Dependence, Emotional Control, Stamina, Prospecting, Closing, Organization/Attention to Detail, Response to Incentives, Need for Direction, Turnover Propensity.
