Cornerstone’s Executive Search capability is built on a critical priority – fit, or compatibility.
A candidate may have outstanding experience and top ranked educational qualifications, but if he or she is not compatible with the employing company’s culture, the relationship – and the investment — is doomed.
Many leading search companies recognize this – but few take it to its logical conclusion.
The methodology of many firms is to conduct a psychometric assessment of the candidates. This indicates information about a candidate’s characteristics. But it is not customized to the organization and the job.
Cornerstone International Group’s talent profile assessment specialists go one step further. They create a profile of the job and also of the hiring company, based on input from the hiring manager. Then they can understand meaningful compatibilities between candidates and jobs.
Cornerstone’s talent assessment profile tools were developed by Human Capital International of Mexico, a global firm which has been serving clients worldwide for 13 years. The firm’s revolutionary methodology is available through trained, independent professionals of both HCI and Cornerstone located in Latin America, Europe, Asia and in the United States.
The Cornerstone Talent Profile
Accurate talent and behavioral assessment plays a core role in Cornerstone’s top ranked Retained Executive Search service. Helping clients continuously improve performance means selecting people whose core values closely match the culture and objectives of the organization, as well as the specific positions being considered.
To ensure the latest science is employed, Cornerstone partnered with HCI which has developed the Cornerstone Talent Profile (CTP) based on the company’s ground-breaking, 21st century psychometric assessment tool for organizational decision-makers.
“It is grounded in theory and developed from the results of critical research studies, “says Alberto Lares, Managing Director of the Assessment Division. “Its purpose is to clarify an individual’s compatibility with a job.”
The CTP provides information and data designed to improve an organization’s ability to create an effective job match between the critical requirements of a job and those of its incumbents. A candidate’s style, values and brainpower are compared for compatibility with parameters defined by the company.
The CTP is also effective in identifying improvements to the work patterns of existing employees by modifying either the behavior or the job parameters or both.
