Hiring Intelligence

In our fast-paced competitive market where patience is no longer a virtue, where the cost of employee turnover has reached new heights and every candidate has taken a seminar or two on how to create the perfect resume and how to dazzle a recruiter in an interview – wouldn’t you agree that we need all the help we can get to bypass the” hire me” smoke screens and dig deeper to find the real gems?

Recently, the Harvard Business Review published the results of a study involving more than 360,000 working people in 14 industries with both high and low turnover rates. The study’s objective was to examine the effectiveness of traditional hiring practices as a means of filling jobs with productive people. The study concluded: “It’s not experience that counts, or college degrees or accepted factors; success hinges on fit with the job.” Peter Drucker, a well known management consultant said, “Chances are good that up to 66% of your company’s hiring decisions will prove to be mistakes in the first twelve months.”

What is the Witz Hiring Intelligence?

Hiring Intelligence uses the MRPI Assessment, a validated diagnostic tool that has been in use since 1981. It enables you to accurately predict a candidate’s ‘fit’ within your organization or group.  In less than one hour, this online questionnaire will measure a candidate’s level of social competence, and provide you with the data you need to anticipate their suitability to do the job.  This people-focused tool is the predictive asset you’ve been looking for.  You learn instantly what otherwise would take three to nine months to discover on the job.

Available in:

  • English

  • German (MRPI only)

How is it different?

Most available diagnostics are based on IQ evaluation, measure preferences, and provide results centred on word pairings. They are often computer-generated and scored, typically rendering limited, generic, and vague results. Verbal and customized written feedback of Hiring Intelligence identifies the candidate in every detail with behavioural competencies you need when making critical hiring, promotion and/or succession planning decisions.

What does it measure?

Hiring Intelligence enables companies to quickly and effectively determine the candidate’s job, team, manager, and culture fit with clear understanding of their abilities.
