Identify your top talent, before somebody else does. Attracting, finding, hiring, developing and retaining talent is one of the most important strategic functions a competitive organization has, and developing your human capital can make or break a firm’s performance. An organization reflects its individual parts, and attention must be paid to the critical role of bringing in new talent that aligns with the organizations’ goals and culture.
In the war for talent, MHS can help you identify the type of talent needed in your organization, the capabilities needed to remain competitive in your market, and how you can hire for success.
Research shows that, “many employers, both in the United States and throughout the world, are currently using suboptimal selection methods.”1 With only 25% of organizations utilizing assessments for the external hiring of senior leaders, there is a vast competitive advantage being squandered by most organizations.2
Whether you are looking to hire in volume, for strategic roles, or bring in/promote leadership, MHS can provide the expertise needed to implement a systematic, structured, and evidence-based process. Using off the-shelf or customized tools, MHS’ team of Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychologists, Consultants, Data Scientists, Test Experts, and Talent Solutions Consultants can design and implement a system that will help you find the best talent for your needs.
Let us take the hard work out of your assessment process. MHS’ experts can help you meet industry regulations and legal compliance in your selection process by basing your hiring decisions on defensible, validated assessment processes.
Consultation & Design
During the initial consultation phase, MHS works with you to identify your current and future hiring needs as well as access to current job incumbents and future candidates. Part of this process will be establishing key performance indicators for the selected role(s) and reviewing the current selection process and materials.
As part of the research design, MHS will create an applied research and rollout strategy. Depending on available data, MHS may also administer a performance criteria assessment. We will also establish an analysis and reporting strategy.
Administration & Analysis
MHS will design a communication plan focused on generating buy-in within your organization for the assessment administration procedure. With our support, the assessments will be rolled out to collect data with your current employees or future job candidates. MHS ensures that quality performance data is used through the generation of new data points or the evaluation of existing data. As the data comes in, our scientists and experts examine relationships, conduct in-depth psychometric analyses, and create mathematical models and algorithms to predict successful performance in your organization and roles.
Reporting & Action
MHS provides technical and non-technical reporting to stakeholders, allowing for digestible insights and appropriate communication. We leverage the in-depth analyses to deploy the assessment within a revised hiring process. As part of that, MHS will design an on-going selection and evaluation strategy so that your organization can trust that the hiring process continues to scale with new data and with your organization.
Interviews are one of the most common hiring practices in modern organizations and yet most organizations are not leveraging the true predictive power of structured interviews. Research shows that a well-designed structured interview can predict a significant amount of an individual’s performance on the job.1 When built by experts, a properly designed structured interview process has a much higher degree of validity compared to the traditional interview and can be well integrated into a broader assessment process.2 MHS’ team of trained professionals can develop structured interview guides, training, and processes to help you meet your hiring needs.
Often focus is placed on how candidates can excel during an interview process; equally, if not more important are strong interviewer practices to ensure the right decision is made. Using a structured interview process will neutralize common poor evaluation practices such as:
Trusting “gut” instinct
Having a lack of structure
Dominating the conversation
Allowing bias to influence

In order to continue to grow your business it is critical to nurture and grow your employees, so that they are equipped to meet and overcome current and future challenges. MHS has several ways that we work with your organization to develop your leaders.
Customized Leadership Development Programs
Tailored to the unique needs of your organization, we offer leadership development programs, as follows:
Working with you to understand the unique nature of your business and specific needs of your team, together we collaborate to unearth the underlying needs associated with the issue, challenge, or change you are experiencing. Before we recommend any solution, we need to understand what you are experiencing so we can pin-point the underlying requirements you have.
Once we understand your challenges, we design and develop a program that will produce your desired outcomes. With a team of professionals with deep adult learning expertise, we create a program that not only addresses your needs, but also engages your people in a way that facilitates self-awareness and sharing in a safe environment.
We draw on our assessments and business simulations to form the basis of your program, and incorporate other elements we uncover in our needs assessment to ensure we are addressing your unique challenge(s). Learning by doing, we allow individuals to practice new skills in a safe environment so that they can feel confident, competent, and motivated to continue to use those skills once they leave the classroom. We also connect everything we do with your business priorities and use your internal language, so it is easy for people to make the connections to what they do.
We leverage a team of experienced adjunct facilitators with an average of 15 years’ education and experience in leadership and organizational development. These facilitators come from a variety of backgrounds, most of whom worked within various industries before joining our team. We work with you to ensure your facilitator is the best match for your culture and people. All of our facilitators have deep knowledge of our tools, using them for an average of 12 years.
We do all the heavy lifting, from administration of assessments, to development of material, to facilitation. This allows you to focus on your team, participate in the event or business simulation, and provide support after.
We evaluate every program to ensure it hits the mark, and provide that feedback to you directly. A snapshot of our scores: Facilitators: 9.5/10, Content: 9.8/10, Program: 9/10 (9 out of 10 attendees highly recommend our programs and found it insightful and relevant to their development.)
Setting you up for success, we provide the tools and resources to support continued learning after the classroom work is done, so you can get the best return on your investment and see real change happen.
We have a team of experienced executive coaches who work with individuals to achieve their professional goals:
We work with you to understand what you are looking for in a coach and what you hope to achieve.
We then match you with a coach that will work with you to achieve those goals.
We leverage our extensive tools to help accelerate self-discovery and promote development. Whether it is an understanding of your approach to change or a 360 tool that highlights areas of strength and development, our extensive suite of tools will help facilitate self-discovery and allow you to target areas of growth with your coach.
Leaders have a wealth of knowledge and experience that they’ve gained over the course of their careers. Peer coaching is a great way for leaders to lend their experience to each other, build relationships, build networks, and foster stronger team work among peers. MHS has a tried and true process we teach leaders that help them:
Work on real issues that are important to them
Help them uncover options and solutions they wouldn’t have been able to come up with on their own
Learn coaching skills that they can use with their peers and their direct reports as well
Contribute to building a coaching culture within the organization
If you are looking for a cost-effective way to bring coaching into your organization, let us work with you to make it happen.
We have a roster of seasoned facilitators who are certified in a number of assessments and simulations. You may have a situation where you have a program built in-house but are looking for external support in facilitating it within your organization. Our facilitators are highly experienced working with different levels within different organizations, and are available to facilitate your programs.
Have a leadership offsite meeting and looking for external support to facilitate you through a process? Our seasoned facilitators can work with you to understand your overall goals, and what you hope to achieve at the end of the event. They will work closely with you to ensure things stay on track, and your goals are met. Whether it’s how to implement a change in your organization, or planning your 3-year strategy, our facilitators can make sure your next offsite is a success.

Great leadership starts with the right behavior. Aligning your organization and leadership against a well-defined and well-constructed competency model is how you identify, measure, and develop great leadership.
An example of how we work with you is to map key organizational competencies to skills measured by one of our talent tools. Competency mapping is a great way to connect assessment attributes with what your leaders are being measured on within the organization. This helps them connect the dots and know where their development gaps are.
High performance organizations understand what drives their employees. Uncover insights in your organization through engagement tools and programs. Measure the effects of change, new practices, and shifts in the organization. Learn what your employees need to succeed and where the gaps exist in your people programs. Understand what is driving your culture and how to shape and nurture it.

With over 30 years in the people development space, MHS designs learning programs that build lasting, sustainable change and have built in evaluation criteria and measurement. MHS can design your learning offering from the ground up to capture sustained learning or we can leverage our experience to build evaluation criteria and measurement points to show the return on your investment.
