    Description Return Policy
    Are you hiring employees?

    Have you ever hired a new employee, only to find out months later that you have a “square peg in a round hole”?

    Have you ever hired someone who is absolutely brilliant … then been devastated to lose them just a few months later?

    Or perhaps you’ve seen superb candidates at the job interview that, once on the job, could put Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde to shame!

    Recruiting employees costs time and money … and that’s without adding up all the “indirect costs” … time spent in performance management or reworking a poor performer’s output, time spent training and re-training, time spent reforming teams when a new person joins … yet for many organisations they’ll unknowingly pour $1,000′s of dollars away, week after week, month after month purely due to low quality recruitment practices.

    Few know the “behind the scenes” hiring processes that world-class professional recruiters use like Rod Matthews … because Rod has been one of the people involved in training the recruiters themselves.

    Rod has investigated and separated “theoretical best practice” hiring processes from those that really work … and along the way has uncovered fundamental methods to prevent poor recruitment practices crippling any business’ profits.

    Now anyone can profit from these simple yet little known steps to finding “the right person for the right job”.
