Let’s face it – ideal job fit is one of the greatest challenges for any employer when hiring or for candidates making career moves. Anxiety during and post decision-making can run high. Decisions are made on 'gut feel' or from a ‘hope and a prayer’ that honest reference checking, psychometric testing and insightful interview techniques reveal ideal attitude, motivation, skills, experience and values. Yet, very often these recruitment strategies fail for both the candidate and the employer. Mistakes are certainly costly. Approximately one third of our adult life is spent at work1, and employment2 and work conditions are key determinants to our health and well-being3. Costly also for employers; absenteeism, just one symptom of poor job fit, is estimated to cost the Australian economy a staggering $7 billion per year4. We at Equilibrio positively solve this problem. Our services to candidates, employers, and recruiters facilitate ideal job fit. Contact us today to find out how.
iWAM - Ideal Job Fit
Inventory of Work Attitude and Motivation (iWAM) is the only job assessment instrument that firstly predicts job performance, and secondly accurately measures 48 attitudes, motivations and work preferences, comparing candidates preferences against a sample of the current Australian workforce (Australian Census, 2011). iWAM provides both employers and candidates with a succinct preference map and can also contrast those preferences with a potential manager’s preferences, those of a specific team, organisation wide culture, and also with an exemplar employee.Read More...
Candidates simply fill out a secure and confidential online questionnaire that takes approximately 30-minutes to complete. Equilibrio generates unique, comprehensive and confidential reports about each candidate. Additional reports can be run to analyse each candidate's working style and fit with perspective managers, team members, role exemplars, or a number of candidates together. iWAM reports can be optimised within a debrief about each candidate led by Equilibrio with HR professionals, recruitment partners and leadership teams or managers.Read More...
