This article examines the importance of assessing change fitness as part of the recruitment process.

Are you a recruitment professional? If so, I’m sure you pride yourself in selecting the very best talent for the employment situation. You use a selection of tools to assess the suitability of candidates. But are you assessing their change fitness?

Flexible and adaptable

In this era of constant change, staff need to be flexible and able to deal with change. So screening for change fitness should be part of your recruitment process. It makes sense to select candidates who can not only do the job well, but who can cope with change well.

Change fitness assessment tool

We have developed here in Australia a unique tool to identify and measure the change fitness of people.  This tool will:

  • Show you which candidates are better at handling change
  • Allow you to provide relevant information about the candidate that sets you apart in the marketplace
  • Help companies employ people who are flexible enough to grow with the business

This change fitness screening tool is online and easy to use and administer. It is a cost-effective solution that provides peace-of-mind to employers. It doesn’t cost much to screen people, but hiring someone who can’t deal with change can lead to significant costs in training and inefficiencies.

We are available to assess your client(s) and provide you with relevant feedback, or you can learn how to administer the tool yourself.  Please contact us for more information.
