Our Retained service via i-larson, is designed to identify, approach, attract and finally secure the ‘best in class’, talent from within specific niche market environments. The vast majority of these candidates are not registered with agencies, not active on the job boards and therefore invisible to the standard recruiter and client. Larson Group will engage with clients on an exclusive basis utilising i-larson, where we will deliver a short list of candidates who have all been profiled, interviewed face to face and referenced, within a set period of time.
i-larson is our unique Digital Recruitment process that enhances candidate selection, candidate matching, client assessment and the delivery process for all Retained Search clients’. The process achieves new employee retention rates of 96% over 12 months and 93% over two years. So confident are we in i-larson, it comes with an industry leading candidate replacement policy should things fall into the 4% drop out rate in the first year. This process was designed and developed in partnership with one of the world’s leading behavioural profiling companies, McQuaig, and our development partners, who have undertaken in-depth analysis and research of over 4000 candidate interviews and 200 consultant conversations, which is why the process was named “an industry game changer” by Recruiter magazine in 2013.
By combining recognised tools, such as McQuaig behavioural profiling and our own recruitment methodologies in Retained Search, our clients are able to profile their own environments using McQuaig’s tools, matching that profile against the candidates behavioural profiling results, prior to the interview stage. Video based pre-selection interviews, which allow the client to physically see the candidate prior to an interview, the behavioural profiling tool provides the client with competence-based interview questions based on the candidate’s profile against the job specification. This enhances the clients’ selection process, enabling them to ask questions not normally asked during the initial interview stage.
This gives the client an unparalleled insight into shortlisted candidates, vastly improving the quality of the client interview while also reducing the amount of candidates the client would normally see during this phase, saving them one of the biggest costs of recruitment process, which is the time invested by the client during the initial recruitment phase.
Via a secure individual portal, the client and the candidates are able to access the McQuaig results, videos, job specification, client information and so much more on-line 24/7, via computer, tablet or smartphone. Meaning clients with multiple decision makers, across numerous sites, are able to quickly and efficiently review all applications, leaving information and actions required for each candidate for our consultants to follow-up on immediately.
