The Objectives:

DRS were looking for a tool to support them in assessing candidates during the recruitment process, and that would help them more accurately predict performance of a potential candidate prior to hire. For them, this was of particular importance with graduate level recruitment when there was a lack of previous work experience to assess to help understand their dominant work behaviours.

The Solution:

Duo started out by assessing dominant behaviours within the DRS team and created an ideal behavioural fit profile for each position within the business. 

Following this, Duo’s behavioural tool was implemented within the recruitment process at DRS, where each candidate takes a behavioural assessment, followed by a video interview to cross check dominant behavioural patterns & value fit, against the desired profile. 

Based on this assessment Duo were able to provide the team at DRS with an accurate prediction of how each individual would work in their team. DRS then used this information to help inform hiring decisions, and where to place people across the business.

The final stage involved training the internal HR team within DRS on behavioural profiling & screening, and the behavioural mapping process is now fully integrated into their internal hiring process.

The Measures of Success:

  • The business has a better understanding of the right behavioural fit for DRS
  • The hiring team has a clear way to assess, and onboard new hires, for maximum success
  • The candidate experience process is engaging and on-boarding is tailored to each individual to enable faster integration into the business post hire
  • DRS has high success prior to hire and low turnover of staff, resulting in cost savings across the business
