Hire better salespeople

The challenge

Hiring good salespeople is downright difficult. Many bad salespeople are good enough to fool you in interviews. And many good salespeople fail to make the transition to your environment. The true cost of hiring a poor salesperson can easily exceed $200k, so this is a problem that's worth fixing.

Typical solutions

Imparta's toolkit for screening sales candidates gives a balanced view of their capabilities. It generally includes:

  • Consulting around desired competencies and characteristics
  • CV screening
  • Pre-interview call (reduce time wasted on candidates that are a poor fit for a reason not on the CV)
  • Psychometric assessment
  • Simulation-based skills assessment
  • Competency-based interview
  • Role-play and debrief (sometimes as part of an assessment centre)
  • Cross-checking of identified issues against references

It may sound a lot, but it's a lot less cost and hassle than hiring the wrong person…
