Individual Approach to Work

Sales Force Evaluation and Development

Your sales team is an integral part of your business.  This group creates opportunities for business growth and directly impacts relationships, revenues, and repeat business.  Their individual success will drive the success of your organization.  Through SmartHire®’s Sales Force Evaluation and Development programs, you’re able to break barriers preventing sales success and unlock the potential of your sales force.  Individually or combined, Prevue and Sales Skills assessments reveal sales potential.

Risk Assessment Solutions

While employees are your greatest asset, they can also pose significant risks.  Before making an offer, carefully evaluate the background of those being considered.  A thorough reference check, education verification, credential verification, and, when applicable, a credit history review, and/or criminal record verification will alleviate concerns and help you make a clear and confident decision.  Hiring an employee with a fraudulent history or embellished performance could put your company at risk. Review an applicant’s chronological history carefully to protect your employees, customers and business.  Some concerns, of course, are under-performance, embezzlement, harassment or other difficult situations.
