Recruiting like a professional is not difficult if you know all the steps, and have a system in place to help you manage and control each stage of the process.

Apollo Select - Basic Recruiting System

  • If your business recruits more than 3 people a year, including staff turnover, you will benefit from having a standardised professional system to help you. Otherwise recruiting takes up too much time from untrained staff, and it is not likely that you get the best result possible either.
  • In my experience of over 40 years of recruiting I have seen a lot of practices and processes, some good, many quite bad, and as a result I have designed a simple to use but professional recruitment system called Apollo Select.
  • Apollo Select guides the user, ensures best practice, and controls and standardises the recruitment process. And most importantly ensures you hire people highly likely to be a success in the job.
  • But recruiting is not just about having a system - somehow you have to evaluate soft-skills motivations and attitudes such as reliability, customer service, leadership, and other intangibles. Apollo Select integrates all the soft-skills components, including a validated psychometric assessment.
  • Smaller businesses do not need a big, complex and expensive system - but they do need some systemisation!! And small business want a basic but professional system at a low price, we know that too!
