A Phoenix, Arizona branch of a national health care company had found itself in a costly, no-win situation. Faced with an over 100% turnover rate within its sales force and ever decreasing sales, it was forced to relocate one of the top Sales Directors in the company in hopes of solving the problem. But after many long hours of hiring, training and hand-holding, the Sales Director realized he was not going to get the desired results from his usual methods. He turned to HireSmart to discuss the benefits of a Talent Management System.
A Sales Talent Management System was initiated, beginning with a benchmarking study that identified key characteristics of top sales performers. New sales candidates were given HireSmart assessments to determine their degree of fit with the company’s high performer models, and the assessment results increased the accuracy of hiring decisions. As the project progressed, sales performance data and turnover data were reviewed every six months to fine-tune the system and develop even more accurate performance and turnover predictions.
