Thomas De Brun conducted two Performance Based Hiring Workshops for Commerzbank in our Equities Division. The workshops were attended by mid to senior level executives. The main aim of the workshop was to improve both hiring managers and members of their hiring teams ability, to fill strategically important vacancies accurately and within budget. The training was extremely well received, with positive feedback from all who attended.
The structured approach to hiring taught by Mr De Brun matched perfectly our hiring goals and our commitment to best practise.

AND to  RETAIN THE BEST PERFORMERS


We want to make the workplace a happier and healthier place by changing the way people are hired.  We are part of a workplace revolution movement who feel that work is a major part of our lives and putting the wrong person in the wrong job can not only damage entire work ecosystem but also have a damaging effect on our health and relationships.

 

 
 
 
 

WE CONSULT

Our approach will bring a fresh perspective to problems related to hiring talented performers.  We listen to what is already working and help our clients build on their past success. There is no hiring problem that we can't solve together.

WE TRAIN

Building new skills requires knowledge and practice, but most important of all, attitude. Our training works because we know how to help people see the relevance to what they are learning and the impact it will have to their role and the companys' success. 

WE COACH

Hiring the wrong person or taking a job that is not right for you can have very serious consequences. We provide a comprehensive coaching to help you make great career decisions on what roles are right for you and how to get them.  What people you should hire and how to manage them.


Share your goals, see if we can help...
