The world of business psychology was once the preserve of the corporates, with start-ups and small businesses kept in the dark. Many approach staff selection far too casually – only to find out at great cost later on that their chosen candidates weren’t suitable for the position - and they’d have to spend even more resources on the whole recruiting procedure all over again. Manjula helps reduce this risk for businesses by ensuring they hire the right person for the job in the first place.
Having achieved Chartered Fellowship of the CIPD prior to embarking on her decade-long Human Resources career, she’s able to bring a pragmatic practitioner perspective to occupational assessment and leadership development. Manjula has extensive experience of working with individuals and companies in both of these key areas.
Manjula is no longer a recruiter (she did this in-house for a leading multinational market leader for 5 years during a major expansion before moving into talent management and then business psychology), but she will help you objectively decide who to shortlist by using an array of evidence-based assessment tools that can predict performance levels for business critical roles. These methods are proven to be a more powerful approach than the out-dated, unstructured interview approach.
As an executive coach and trainer, Manjula can assist with development of your new and existing employees, supporting integration, growth and succession planning – all key to staff retention and is a win-win scenario for both employer and the employee. And as an experienced face-to-face and online trainer, Manjula also helps clients skill up your employees to improve their people management and performance e.g. interviewer training (incorporating legal compliance and diversity), utilising 360° degree feedback in leadership development and ‘train the trainer’.
