Research shows that it takes an average of 80 days for a new employee to reach the average level of production. However, on average, the employee is 30% less efficient. You may end up spending several weekly salaries on a new employee if they are slow to develop, have challenges with their nearest manager and / or colleagues, or if they are often attracted to other types of tasks. The Talent Test does not only show who is the right person to hire and get into the business, it also shows how to steer the employee in the best way possible according to their strengths and behaviours throughout the onboarding process. Focusing on talents therefore ensures that you hire the right candidate and in the proper way.
Leaders utilise the test to screen candidates, but also to form team profiles. In the team profiles, leaders are aware of the team’s overall strengths / weaknesses and behavioural patterns. This means that the company can make sure that all aspects are included when it comes to the future collaboration between the candidate and the existing team. People are vastly different and it is therefore central to the recruitment process to include talents, drive strengths, motivation strengths and stress strengths. It is often difficult to define and quantify these parameters, which is why managers and consultants use the Talent Test to uncover these softer values.
The cognitive talents explain the individual’s preferred and instinctive behavioural patterns. They identify which areas the candidate can be optimally developed within and can therefore prevent conflict and ineffective collaboration. All of this is essential to the success of the onboarding process. It shortens the process, makes it more efficient, and focuses on the long-term investment, which an employee must be considered to be a part of, particularly in relation to the company’s goals and visions. Only when the employee feels in place and has crossed the average production level can they increase the numbers on the bottom line.
Statements from happy customers
"In DOVISTA, we view “selection” as one of our most important competences, as our ability to choose the right people for the right position are crucial to creating the optimal organization.
In HR we have until recently based interviews on 4-factor profiles, which is an excellent conversation tool, but at the same time we were aware that we were missing an analysis and development tool.
Therefore, we choose to enter a collaboration with Talents Unlimited on their TT38 “Talent test” which gives us new and better opportunities to put together teams and organization based on a thorough test. It gives us opportunities we haven't had before. The fact that we have chosen to become certified ourselves, is because we see the tool utilized far wider than solely for recruitment, which is why we prefer it in-house, which allows us to work more agile, by having the competence ourselves"
"Personality tests have the effect of providing a rather caricatured - and therefore limited - image of a human being. TT38 is not like that.
TT38 draws a nuanced profile that better takes into account the often very contradictory qualities we each possess. The conclusions are not limited to "blue personality with a little green, so this is who you are", but is based on data on a wide range of personal traits and takes into account the interaction between them. It is all presented in a relatively straightforward way and is complemented by knowledgeable questioning and interpretation by Talents Unlimited, allowing the final nuances to come along
The warmest recommendations from here for both recruitment, efficiency and sheer curiosity"
"Talents Unlimited conducted the TT38 Talent Test on everyone in our team. It has been an eye-opening process for all parties, where each of us has been identified with personality, values, human top talents and non-talents - as well as their paradoxes.
I, as well as employees, are now geared to individualize the types of tasks we each enjoy the most, so that we can solve them with the least possible energy and get the highest possible output.
I really feel that we have shaped the pieces and we can now start to puzzle and create some even better teams that understand and complement each other's talents.
It will give us a better bottom line. Economically as well as socially"
"In our selection of candidates, TT38 has
predicted the behavior 100% right each time!
The 3 times we chose not to follow the test
the candidate failed!"
"At Canon, we have a strong focus on hiring the right profiles that can succeed in our highly competitive market. Therefore, in collaboration with Talents Unlimited, we have used the TT38 Talent Test to define a success profile in sales that shows the talents a seller must have to be successful in our industry.
We can see that when we are loyal to our success profile, our success rate is higher in getting a salesperson to succeed in the job. This is of great benefit to both the employee and the company.
We have now gone one step further and have used the TT38 Talent Test in connection with team building in our sales team. The sellers and executives have become more focused on their talents and how they can become even better sellers, as well as how the sales team improve each other with each other's talent contributions"
