"Psychological evaluation as a post-hire exercise has proven an extremely valuable management tool for our business. A recent addition to our team presented the need to reconsider management style in line with both the new role and the individual. We wanted insights into ‘on the road work’ realities, whether micro or macro management was more suited to the team member, methods to ensure the employee continued to feel connected to the rest of the team and an appropriate timing of goals. The evaluation and report process has provided tangible information and insights we have been able to openly discuss with the employee in configuring a mutually acceptable and beneficial weekly plan with goals and contact intervals. Having the confidence that we are providing the right level of management support and at the right times, has proven invaluable – knowing to not over-manage this team member has demonstrated an immediate and noticeable effect on performance as well as freeing up support time to direct into other areas of the business. The exercise covered its cost in productivity gains alone within the first week."

"Being the owner of a small business, I have to wear several hats and do many tasks. I learnt early on in business that to be successful, I need to concentrate on the tasks that I excel at and outsource the tasks that are not my strength. Outsourcing my recruitment duties to Jamie Smith of JP Smith Recruitment & HR has been a wise investment for my business. I am open to the thorough fact-finding performed of my business knowing that JP Smith are going to great lengths to ensure their service is aligned to my business goals and objectives. It is comforting to know that Jamie and his team are only a phone call away for all our HR and recruitment needs."

"As a long standing client of JP Smith Recruitment and Human Resources, I would like to thank your team for their ongoing professionalism and quality service delivery. Even though I work in local government, I have over the past 4 years needed to call on the services of a professional recruitment and human resources management company. In most cases, I have required external services to address or undertake some very complex human resources management issues. In all my dealings with your firm, I have found the knowledge of all members of staff to be beyond reproach, especially in specialist or technical advice. I am a great supporter of testing, both practical skills and psych, and the service you provide has ensured a number of quality recruitment decisions. I wish the team at JP Smith well in the next chapter of business and look forward to working you in again in the future."
