Ranking Talent

The F4S Ranking Tool provides a snapshot of top talent based on proven success factors so you can move swiftly and confidently when making hiring decisions.

Hiring the right leaders and talent is one of the most difficult things to get right in an organisation — it can truly make or break your culture.

In the past, hiring decisions were made based on skills and experience, but in the future of work, the X-factor is actually a candidate's unique attitudes and motivations.

Before, it was impossible to accurately spot that X-factor (unless you rely on inherently biased 'gut feel') and this often leads to poor talent acquisition outcomes.

But with our Ranking Tool you can easily short-list batches of candidates based on specific X-factors that are proven to predict whether someone will thrive in a particular role or culture.

In short: F4S saves HR and recruiters money and hundreds (or thousands!) of hours when hiring top talent that can help bring your team to that next level of success.

Outcomes with F4S:

Fast and easy way to spot top talent within your organization

Quickly shortlist candidates for interviews based on ideal role fit

Pinpoint talent that will thrive in key roles in innovation or business leadership
