Values Based Recruitment

Finding the right cultural fit is essential in building a great team. With our values based recruiting software, you can ensure you find the perfect candidate to fit into your team dynamic.

Ensuring the right fit for your organisation


Organisations including the NHS and Nissan are using Values Based Recruitment to reduce staff turnover, boost morale with a more positive working environment and save on overall recruitment costs.

How it works

Individuals hold 36 core values which when aligned (either positively or negatively) between a candidate and a team or organisation will act as an objective method of identifying cultural fit. This covers everything from attention to detail, attitude to risk, working with teams and other motivators.


Benchmark existing team

Identify organisational teams, and everyone completes a 15 minute values exercise to create a benchmark report


Candidates complete exercise

Candidates complete the same 15 minute exercise to generate a unique profile and score

Adding value through values

Reduce employee turnover

Current employment turnover is between 16-18% annually depending on the industry.

As much as 80% of this employee turnover is due to bad hiring decisions.

Additionally, half of all new hires fail in 18 months and 89% of these failures have nothing to do with skills and abilities

Faster hiring, better candidates

Select only the right candidates to take forward to the next stage - for example video interview or assessment centre, reducing wasted effort on unsuitable candidates.

Employees are happier and more productive when working in an organisation that shares their personal needs, values and motivations.

Improve morale and engagement

95% of managers believe poor hiring decision impacts the morale of the team. The impact is amplified when a “bad hire” is at a senior level.

Gallup survey found 17% of all workers are disengaged and these employees aren’t just unhappy at work; they’re busy acting out their unhappiness. These employees undermine what their engaged colleagues accomplish.

Culture Transformation

Benchmarking existing teams allows us to create a detailed culture profile of your organisation.

As part of a consultative exercise with a behavioural psychologist, we can help to identify challenges within your company - for example performance, or staff turnover and pinpoint process and organisational changes, to make best use of your current teams.

Combining this with the recruitment process and performance reviews, we are able to facilitate culture transformation exercises backed up by the findings from the values exercise.
