BestFit™ recruitment includes an objective assessment of whether a person possesses each of the following:

  • The necessary skills, abilities and experience to perform the job to the required standard

  • The right level of motivation to do the job

  • The personality type to fit within the broader culture of the organisation

Our objective is to find the candidate who is the 'Best Fit' for the position, team and the organisational culture; thereby increasing not only the performance level in that position, but also the average level of performance across the organisation. This effectively maximises engagement and productivity while decreasing costs associated with turnover and poor performance.
