Hiring great salespeople, sales managers, and sales leaders is no easy task. Too often, candidates have a charming personality, perfect track record and great resume but don't perform when placed in a sales position.
Objective Management Group's (OMG) Sales Candidate Assessment solves this problem by giving employers a detailed report on the candidate's sales-specific strengths and skills, along with a custom-tailored recommendation of whether a candidate should be interviewed. Having assessed nearly 1,000,000 salespeople, OMG's research shows that 92% of recommended candidates who are hired move to the top half of the sales force within a year, and 75% of candidates that OMG doesn't recommend but are hired anyway fail within 6 months.
Our Sales Candidate Assessments are the most accurate predictor of sales success at your specific company. We help our clients develop custom criteria for sales success in your business and integrate it to our time-tested criteria for success in sales. Then, with our unique sliding scale, we set the hiring criteria to a level appropriate for the demands of the position. Finally, you’ll have the ability to track all of your candidates online where you can sort, filter and identify trends according to the findings.
Top Sales World has awarded OMG its Gold Medal for Top Sales & Marketing Assessment Tool for 5 consecutive years.
