Abby Lechner, co-leader of the Organizational Development practice at Decision Associates, explains the importance of preparing candidates for interviews with client organizations.

"Our company is great at hiring for most positions, but when we needed help with an executive position, we turned to Decision Associates. We felt that we didn't have to 'go it alone' to find the right person. The screening tools that were used helped to match the candidate to the personality and culture of Betts Industries. They identified the traits and performance indicators with the candidates, and we began a vetting process that was intensive and successful. The whole process was quicker than we thought it would be and was narrowed to a handful of candidates who were all qualified. It was an easy process to work with Decision Associates, the extra work up front that they did benefited us at the end. Our hire is going great and exceeding our expectations. We would recommend Aaron Phillips and Elizabeth Cipolla to assist in any executive position needed and will turn to them again."
