PHASE 7: ASSESSMENTS

Assess each individual in each key functional role against a customized profile to identify strengths and gaps using the Top-Grading Methodology.

 

SBI follows the top-grading for sales process that compares competencies, accountabilities, and the intangible aspects of emotional intelligence and field presence. The end result is a wholistic view of the candidate. This ultimately reduces employee ramp-to-productivity and employee churn by assuring role fitness up-front in the process.

Rapid Diagnostic

8. You have defined and follow a process of how well decisions be made at the end of the assessment process.

9. You continue to “sell to” a candidate after an offer is extended to ensure they accept the job.

10. You categorize the talent you have assessed into A/B/C Player categories based on the completed assessments and the known strengths/weaknesses of your organization and the individuals.
