Hiring Research

Our comprehensive 24-hour lecture series on personal effectiveness towards employment, specifically written for University College Cork, has been refined into a high-impact personal stratagem programme. This programme, written and developed by us, covers essential elements such as personal impression management, personal development stratagem, personality profiling, motivation analysis, and emotional intelligence. Our goal is to identify key marginal differences that ensure the candidate's success in a highly competitive future ready job market.

As part of our offering, our research and extensive experience in industry has equipped us with the ability to screen and rank applicant candidates for hiring firms. We present these candidates to the hiring organization with a screening report that accurately reflects their skills, potential, and cultural fit. This added level of screening and evaluation helps organizations make highly informed decisions and select the best future ready candidate accurately for the job.

The overall aim of the programme is to augment/assess the potency of job candidates and drive them towards best fit positions. Our stratagem programme is designed to deliver a comprehensive solution that impresses recruitment firms and hiring managers seeking future-ready individuals. The impact of technology, specifically AI and automation, on professional positions is undeniable. According to recent studies, it is expected that large companies will be shedding traditional jobs and concurrently hiring individuals with a “future ready” 21st century skill set.  Partner with us to take your talent acquisition processes to the future ready 21st century level.

Our approach is designed to provide you with a customized approach that suits your needs, so that you can take concrete steps towards building a future-ready, resilient organization. 

Psyche-Dynamism Assessment

The Robert Heyward Psyche-Dynamism indicator assessment not only helps organizations achieve future readiness, but also creates a more productive and inclusive environment. Research has shown that a more diverse and inclusive workforce is more innovative and better equipped to solve complex problems. According to a study published in the Harvard Business Review, employees who feel that their colleagues are different from them, but are still accepted and valued, are more innovative and better equipped to solve complex problems.

The assessment can help to create a more inclusive environment by promoting self-awareness and understanding of personality type preferences. Employees who understand their own personality type preferences and those of their colleagues are better equipped to appreciate and leverage their differences, leading to better teamwork, communication, and collaboration. 

Moreover, research has shown that employees who are given opportunities to learn and grow are more engaged and productive. A survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management found that employees who receive regular feedback and development opportunities are more engaged and productive.

Studies have also shown that employees who feel valued and understood are more likely to remain with their organization for the long-term. By investing in the development of their employees through the Robert Heyward Psyche-Dynamism assessment, organizations can create more engaged and dedicated employees, reducing turnover and associated costs. According to a study published in the Journal of Organizational Behaviour, employees who feel valued and understood by their organization are more committed to their job and less likely to leave.

The assessment promotes self-awareness, understanding of personality type preferences, and growth opportunities, leading to better teamwork, communication, and collaboration. Moreover, it helps to create an overall progressive inclusive culture, which is essential for long-term success.

Future Ready—Raising the Horizontal Bar On the T

The T Shaped Professional 

As businesses navigate through an ever-evolving landscape, the need for professionals who possess a unique blend of skills and expertise has become increasingly important. The concept of a "T-shaped" professional has emerged as a model for success in today's rapidly changing world. These individuals possess a depth of knowledge and expertise in a specific field or discipline, represented by the vertical "stem" of the T. However, they also have a breadth of skills and knowledge in other areas, represented by the horizontal "bar" of the T.

In addition to their technical abilities, T-shaped professionals are 21st century ready and possess a range of skills that enable them to thrive in complex and dynamic environments. They have high emotional intelligence, adaptability, strong communication skills, and resilience. They are also cross-culturally competent, with the ability to effectively navigate and manage their own emotions and those of others.

T-shaped professionals can adapt to changing circumstances and environments, effectively communicate with a variety of people in different situations, and bounce back from difficulties to continue progressing. They are able to work effectively with people from different cultural backgrounds, and have the ability to lead teams and projects. They are also critical thinkers and problem solvers, constantly seeking out new knowledge and skills to improve themselves and their abilities.

These professionals are future-ready, displaying organic intelligence and understanding the progressive culture distinctions in employer branding. At our management consultancy, we recognize the value of T-shaped professionals and work with organizations to identify, develop, and retain these individuals. By investing in these professionals, businesses can create a sustainable competitive advantage and be better prepared for the challenges of tomorrow.
