Interview Preparation and Coaching: It is easy to write down the questions one might want to explore and know the answers to regarding an individual an employer may be considering to join their business. However, how do you know your potential new employee is telling the truth?  The greatest cost of running a business is the cost of having staff, so it’s crucial for business owners to ensure they are making the right decision for the cost of making a bad hiring decision can be up to five times the salary of the role you are recruiting for! No business should ever be needing to afford that.

It therefore makes sense to ensure your interview process is well-organised, targeted, does not just rely on a face-to-face interview, engages activities that allow the potential employee to demonstrate their skills and competency and determines whether or not that person will be a personality fit for the role, the team and your type of business.

Counselling Approach: With over 7 years consulting, coaching and training Australian business owners to adopt their own in-house tools, systems and processes, Helen has saved businesses thousands of dollars in recruitment agency fees. Helen helps businesses develop and use initial screening tools, interview processes, exercises and behavioural questioning techniques, assess culture and personality fit to the opportunity. Having a performed a variety of psychometric evaluations including the well-known MBTI and McQuaig, Helen looks to educate businesses on the right choice of psychometric evaluations. She believes in empowering businesses to become masters of recruiting their own people and works with businesses to apply organisational psychology strategies to recruit, retain (the right people!) and effectively reward staff for the overall betterment of the business.
