Understanding the Individual
Companies that achieve successful growth understand the importance of the individual. At TRN, we put emphasis in the early stages when engaging with our clients to understand their culture, environment, and their decision makers first. Understanding a potential hire requires the same systematic relationship building approach.
Once a candidate is engaged our Talent Engagement Specialists initiates our chronological and behavioral-based interview programs. Through each of the steps our goal is to gain a comprehensive understanding of the individual, their performance and their motivations.
Our chronological interview is designed to uncover detailed facts on a candidate’s past performance, their employment history, and their performance activity. This step in our evaluation process consists of qualifying questions specific to our partner’s requirements, and detailed evaluation of a candidate’s job history.
Our second stage of interviews is conducted in a behavioral-based interviewing manner. The basis of behavioral-based interviews is that the most logical predictor of someone’s future performance is past performance in similar situations. Talent Engagement Specialists at TRN always conduct behavioral-based interviews with candidates either via video conferencing or in-person. This face-to-face approach is nonnegotiable on behalf of our clients. It provides us, and ultimately our clients, with a holistic understanding of a candidate’s past performance including circumstantial responsiveness, principle applications to specific past circumstances, learning ability, and motivations. This phase of interviewing also enables our Talent Engagement Specialists to challenge any discrepancies on a candidate’s profile and test important traits like culture fit, internal drive, cognitive skillset, client- abilities.
Once a candidate has moved forward in the process a member of our Executive Team evaluates each candidate before they are presented to a partner. Our goal is to provide maximum efficiency without compromising on quality.
