Kitchen and Bath Industry
The Kitchen & Bath Industry is a unique business with unique requirements. Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent each year in the U.S. alone on kitchen & bath construction and renovation. The owners and executives who run these firms understand the impact that hiring and keeping the best designers and outside salespeople have on their business results.
I work with kitchen & bath companies across the country to hire A-players, reduce hiring mistakes, and create organizations that drive growth and profit.
What Clients Have To Say
“Eric Herrenkohl of Herrenkohl Consulting designed an interviewing system for RSI that is going to greatly help us improve the consistency and effectiveness of our interviewing process. Eric customized interview questions that help us identify if an individual has the combination of skills, abilities, and motivations required to succeed at RSI. He invested a tremendous amount of time to understand the details of our industry and what makes our people tick, and that understanding is reflected in the system he designed for us. I was particularly impressed with the on-line assessment instruments that Herrenkohl Consulting provides. They gave us unique insight into our best people and helped add a level of quantitative analysis to the hiring process that I think will be very valuable. I highly recommend this process to other National Kitchen & Bath members.”

“We worked with Eric Herrenkohl to develop an interview and hiring system for Hallmark Stone, and I have been very pleased with the results. The fast growth and ongoing hiring we have been doing made it necessary to have a hiring system that is both effective and efficient. As an organization, we needed to become skilled at identifying job candidates who will succeed in our company. We also needed a standardized system that helps each manager focus on the necessary performance requirements when they conduct an interview.
Eric was very effective in working with us to design a system that meets both requirements. He took the time to learn our company, and to design a system that reflected our unique requirements. I appreciated that fact that he did not just try to sell us an off-the-shelf system. Instead, Eric worked with us to design a system that is right for our company. Eric’s follow-up demonstrated that he is interested in the success of this project and our company. I recommend the Herrenkohl Consulting hiring system and Eric Herrenkohl to any company that wants to become more effective at identifying and hiring the best people possible.”

“Eric, I have received positive feedback on your presentation. I thank you for taking the time to speak to our organization. It was a pleasure meeting with you and I have referred you to other regions. Thank you again for your support for the NKBA.”
“I value and trust your opinion which is important if you are helping me make decisions that impact my business. I can tell you really enjoy what you do because you are very thorough in your research and preparation and typically have a way to find the answers. When you give an answer or opinion you get almost excited about it and of course that excitement is contagious. I wish I could hire you to work for me full time!”

“I would like to take a moment and thank you for your presentation last week on Hiring Winners. Your presentation was very effective and we got a positive response from our members. In fact, I had a number of people come up to me right after the presentation and say how much they liked it . . . Most of the people who attended were specifically interested in this topic and got what they were looking for and more by coming that evening. Thanks again for a job well done. We look forward to working with you and your company in the future.”

“Everyone who participated in the weekend truly enjoyed your presentation. We had 44 people complete surveys for the weekend and of the responses we had for your presentation the average response was a 4.71 overall rating based on a 1 out of 5 scale with 1 being poor and 5 being excellent. Additionally only one of the respondents indicated they would not recommend your program to others while 43 said yes they would. He or she must have been too cold and therefore didn’t like anything!”
