Overview

team discovery is a professional search firm dedicated to finding the best possible matches for our clients and candidates. The goal of this platform is to end the long-term agony associated with recruiting, hiring and onboarding new staff. This is accomplished through a comprehensive assessment and interview process involving clients and candidates alike that identifies the barriers to long-term successful hiring.

Culture

While there are many recruiters out there in the marketplace today, many of them are only interested in filling a job for their client. Whether the candidate is a solid fit for their client is not necessarily their concern. At team discovery, this is our only concern. We understand that the team you are creating can be the most important aspect of building a successful business. Team Discovery has a unique and time tested process for finding the best match for our clients and candidates alike. At team discovery, we believe in creating the “perfect fit” situation for both our clients and our candidates. To truly insure the best possible hires, we employ the latest and most effective assessment tools in the industry. These assessments allow us to test our clients and candidates on their values, behaviors and skills to match them together or move them away from each other before a bad hiring decision is made. While these assessments are only a part of the decision on a new hire, they allow us to make efficient use of our client’s valuable time. Assessments Utilized Work Environment: Prior to beginning our search, we believe in investing time in our new clients. One of the key elements in understanding our new client relates directly to the behaviors of the job looking to be filled. A work environment assessment is one of the best new ways to truly understand the position and who will be the best fit for it. Our team works directly with our clients to assess the behaviors of each job to insure that we can properly match each candidate to the right job, every time. DISC/Behaviors: talent is a combination of many factors, one of which is behavior. Team discovery provides DISC testing for all of your candidates, prior to your meeting them. If they match the behavior of the job, they are eligible to continue through our hiring process. If not, there may be enough evidence to determine the candidate is not a good fit for a career at your organization. By assessing a candidate’s behavior, we have the ability to improve interviewing and evaluating our candidates for our clients. Values/Motivators: What motivates employees to sell, manage, service or connect with customers the way they do? What prompts an employee’s enthusiastic response-a happy customer, a big sale, a tough problem solved? The answers to these questions are all based on values. Values are the drivers behind our behaviors; what motivates our actions. Understanding your candidate’s values and how they relate to the job and culture can be critical to the long term success of the candidate in his/her new position. Salespeople: Imagine hiring salespeople that can produce the way that they said they could. Sales Skills index presents questions that portray “real life” sales situations. By comparing your candidate's answers against top sales professionals, we are able to see if they can bring in the business for you. Sales Skills covers seven different steps in the sales process including: prospecting, first impressions, qualifying, demonstration, influence, closing and general sales. By understanding where the strength and weaknesses of each candidate we help our clients to avoid some of the hiring mistakes made in the past. Team Evaluations: Your team is your most valuable asset. It may only take one weak link to effect the entire company. In order to better understand your team’s strengths and weaknesses, we offer a complete evaluation of your team. This includes interviewing key players, assessing their behaviors and motivators and testing skill levels. Once the evaluation is completed, we provide a thorough written evaluation which outlines the internal issues and provides suggestions for improvements moving forward. Training Programs: At team discovery, we have over 40 years of combined experience the staffing and team evaluation industry. Our clients utilize our talents to assist them in not only building the best teams possible, but in training them after they are placed. Our workshops include: effective communication, team building, DISC-the art of understanding human behavior and sales training.

Our Mission

While there are many aspects of running a business that determine its success, the concept of TEAM may be at the top of the list. Having the right people in your organization can make any CEO or company President gleam with pride. On the other hand, having the wrong people can cause internal political struggles, sinking profit margins and even sleepless nights. At team discovery, we believe in the power of the team and its ability to launch a company straight to the top.

Our mission at team discovery is to focus on truly understanding our clients in order to develop the best teams for them. Each placement that we make occurs only after we have thoroughly evaluated our new client to completely understand their business, culture and the specific positions to be filled.

Areas of Specialty

Though we can’t be everything to everyone, team discovery focuses on full-time/permanent placements for the following job categories: Sales, management, administrative, accounting, legal, IT and nonprofit.

Staffing: While there are many recruiters out there in the marketplace today, many of them are only interested in filling a job for their client. Whether the candidate is a solid fit for their client is not necessarily their concern. At team discovery, this is our only concern. We understand that the team you are creating can be the most important aspect of building a successful business. Team Discovery has a unique and time tested process for finding the best match for our clients and candidates alike.

Hiring: Your ability to effectively hire the right people for your business can mean the difference between success and failure in today’s tough economic climate. Without the right processes for interviewing, assessing, and on-boarding, many companies end up with the wrong people in key positions. At team discovery, we teach our clients the most effective ways to bring in candidates. This saves everyone time and provides a structure that can be internalized by our clients to get results long term.

On-boarding: In addition to helping our clients with all of their team building needs, team discovery assists in the on-boarding process for our clients. Many times there is no structure for a new employee, which can lead to underperformance. Team discovery believes that our client’s investment in a new team member must be protected. We teach our clients how to effectively on-board new candidates to help insure their retention and success in their new job.

Training: Team Discovery does more than just produce the best candidates for our clients; we have the resources to train our clients as well. With over 50 years of training, coaching and staffing experience, team discovery can help your team produce results. Our programs range from sales training to team building. With sister companies, Sales Results and The Executives Profit, team discovery has depth and experience currently unmatched in the industry.

Client side: Before a search begins we endeavor to gather as much information as possible by visiting our client’s office in order to spend a significant amount of time to interview, assess and uncover all we can about our new client and the details of the job. Without understanding the culture of the company and behaviors of the job it is very difficult to find the right fit for the position. As a search firm we are unique in that we invest this amount of time at a client’s office prior to beginning a new search. The team discovery process has been proven over time to save our clients time, money and wasted energy. We are successful at this by limiting time with the wrong or inappropriate candidates and respecting our client’s time by only presenting qualified candidates.

Candidate side: Before a new candidate is presented to our clients he/she must pass our rigorous 10 step evaluation. In addition to the traditional resume review and interviews, each candidate is assessed on values, behaviors and skill sets that directly relate to the compatibility of the candidate, the job match and company needs. By perfectly fitting the candidate and client together, team discovery eliminates the pain associated with bad hires and employee turnover.
