Who knows the direction of the labor market over the coming months or years? It is anyone's guess.
What is known is that in order for a company to truly succeed, they need to attract and hire the best fit to the desired role & capabilities, the culture and other essential elements. The cost of a poor hiring decision is estimated to be 2 to 4 times the base salary, training & benefit costs and lost opportunity. That can sink a business – be it with one hire or many.
Regardless of the quantity of available jobs, a company's competitive edge increasingly will be tied to the quality of its talent. Poor and even average hires will reduce profitability, stunt growth and lead to a vulnerable position relative to competitors.The good news is that companies can learn from the science around pre-employment assessment and reference checking. Next-Act has selected a suite of assessment and reference checking tools to help your organization make better hiring, promotion and management decisions.

I'm not just about career planning ...
|... in fact I have carved my career through helping individuals succeed, as well as companies succeed through the people they hire, manage and trust with growing their business and serving their customers. Through the assessment services listed here as well as consulting, coaching and driving performance on an individual and group basis, I have been very helpful to companies on the way to growth or trying to navigate their way through growth as well.
Companies can get into, what my good friend Jason Jacobs describes, a "full on stall". This defines what happens when a jet fighter is in full thrust but stalls. Other conditions, not pure thrust, cause the stall.
The same happens in companies. People, processes and the real way the business operates (versus what leadership may think) can hold a company back in so many ways. Understanding what is occurring, where the challenges are and the people involved and beginning the process to realign and correct can release a company from a full on stall so they can grow. Ownership/leadership feels in better control. People work well together. They are all shooting for the same goals. That is where performance excels.
I use many tools – as well as 40 + years experience – to make this happen. I also rely on the systems I have developed, like the Prescriptive Performance Analysis & Methods (PPAM) © to help understand the root issues – on an individual, group or company basis, and solve them.
