Our unique talent recruitment process has resulted in 100% retention, of all positions filled, 8 years in a row.


A mortgage company was experiencing over 300% turnover annually among their sales department. The position was benchmarked and the top 5 sales people were compared to the benchmark. Turnover was reduced 250% in just 6 months after they used our assessments for their hiring standard.


A service organization was losing 60% of all new hires during their first 60 days on the job. Using our tools, they changed the hiring process resulting in no turnover for the last 60 days.


One company ran 120 people through the Success Discovery Process and had a 50% increase in employee satisfaction.


Another company ran reports but did not go over the reports on a one-to-one basis and still showed a 26% increase in employee satisfaction.


Another company was losing 50% of their new hires during the training program. Benchmarking the job and bringing in the right people increased retention to 80%.


An organization had a 74% turnover in their sales force. After the benchmarking and debriefing, they reduced that number to zero during the last 18 months.
