Why B-A Personnel?
Because at B-A Personnel we like to conduct our work in such a way that we are not only consultants to your company but an extension of your company.
How do we intend achieving this goal?
Numerous Costs/benefits studies have repeatedly illustrated just how costly and ineffective “in-house” recruiting generally is. Compare our fees against the aggregate of the following costs, which are unavoidable if your organisation elects to conduct “in-house” recruiting.
- Management time. (Project co-ordination)
- Advertising (designing time and publishing costs)
- Response screening
- Reference confirmation
- Initial interview
- Short-list compilation.
- In addition to the above direct costs, indirect costs must also be accounted for. The greatest cost of all, however, is the diversion of management time away from its acknowledged areas of expertise.
We are confident that our existing approach will prove to be successful. We insist on scrutinised interviews for each position. We put a large amount of time aside, preparing, investigating and studying to ensure we fully understand what is required to fill the position successfully.
Once the groundwork investigation is done we carefully plan the questions to be presented to the candidates during their interview with one of our consultants – These interviews take approximately 1hr20min
A third of the questions is a character interview, to try and determine their stability, intentions for the future, aims, ambitions etc
The remaining two thirds of the interview is directly related to the position being filled
All our questions have been carefully chosen and drawn up by a technical team who are best suited to prepare the perfect questions
The reasons for such stringent tests are various
-To ensure the best candidate is presented to the company
-To prepare our candidates for the interview with the company
-To do the necessary assessment of the persons ability and knowledge
-All suitable candidates CVs are screened then contacted and interviewed. In many situations this could result in 10-20 candidates being interviewed, thereafter the best 2-3 candidate profiles are drawn up and submitted. We believe that this process will benefit your company in numerous ways
Your HR department will do no unnecessary interviews because the candidate is not suitable. Limited interviews need to be done because we only send in suitable and well screened candidates who meet all the requirements of the specification given to us by yourselves. Our aim here is to avoid the HR department and management from doing extra unnecessary work that should be done by the agency. In addition we offer documented references (2 per candidate) from previous employment managers in the candidate’s profile. Attached to the profile will also be.
- ID Documentation
- Salary Slip
- All relevant qualification certificates
- Criminal and ITC checks (which are done when interest is shown from the company for a particular candidate)
Why do we go to such extreme?
Because we at B-A Personnel believe that no questions pertaining to our candidates should be left unanswered and that HR should feel they know these candidates before they have even met them.
