A Focus on Impact with The GC Index
The GC Index is embedded the eg.1 search Process to provide all candidates, hiring managers and key stakeholders with a common language of impact and contribution to help align all expectations and mitigate any risks in the hiring process.
Our client or key stakeholders take The GC Index® profile for themselves. We will provide them with feedback on their profiles and highlight their individual and collective impact and contribution as part of your Pitch/proposal.
We also provide the impact profile of our assignment team to ensure we all know how each of us want to best make an impact.
We use The GC Index® language and framework to ask our clients what impact and contribution they require the successful candidate to make.
It is very efficient to make reference to the individual and team profiles we have already provided to illustrate the impact of the existing team and work with the client to identify how the successful candidate’s impact and contribution will integrate into the team.
Shortlist & Selection:
During the interview stage we utilise The GC Index® to test candidates and identify their impact. The GC Index enables us to leverage the resulting profiles to demonstrate the differences in impact and contribution between candidates.
We make reference to the team profiles you have already provided to illustrate the positive and negative implications of each candidate’s impact in relation to that of our client’s team.
We leverage The GC Index® profiles of the successful candidate and the existing team to support our client in understanding how best to integrate the new hire.
Finally, we use The GC Index® to profile the hiring manager (if not already done), using this to offer the client feedback on how to ensure a positive working relationship between the hiring manager and the successful candidate.
By leveraging the proven eg.1 search process, powered by The GC Index, our clients are reassured that when engaging with us, they will secure the talent that will make that transformational impact, from day one.
