We help hundreds of companies like yours to reduce hiring mistakes, hire A-players, and create better individual and team performance. As part of these processes, we often use validated personnel assessments to provide quick and accurate insight into your current and potential employees. The right personnel assessments are great tools for getting insights into employees and job candidates early enough that problems can be avoided and talents capitalized upon.

They allow us to inject quantifiable data into a qualitative conversation.
• Reduce costly hiring mistakes.

"Eric‘s initial assessment of our team was uncannily accurate. The assessment provided a great platform from which we could tackle specific store issues such has hiring, role definitions, marketing and employee development. After being in business for 10 years, Eric helped us tremendously in finding new and innovative ways of structuring our business for the future. We look forward to continuing our work with Eric who has become one of the most important members of our team."

‘‘We use Eric Herrenkohl and his personnel assessment tools to help validate the decisions we make in hiring sales people. The process was so accurate in describing the strengths and weaknesses of our current sales staff that I have begun using the tool to screen every new sales person we bring into the company. As I look at our new sales people, I think it will be very useful from the beginning to know what areas to key on in developing both their strengths and their weaknesses. We now view this as a critical piece of our hiring process.’’
“We utilize Herrenkohl Consulting for the screening of potential new employees. The results have been very revealing and have not only helped our managers make good hiring decisions, but made them more comfortable in being able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the people they are interviewing. We have saved money and countless hours in training by not hiring employees who do not fit the profile of the successful Fleet Feet Sports employee. Best of all, our customers are seeing our service levels soar as we add additional motivated, trainable and service oriented employees to our staff.
Eric has been working with other Fleet Feet Sports Stores and is very familiar with our business and the many issues we face. I can not recommend enough that you talk to Eric about your business.”

‘‘The Herrenkohl Consulting assessment tool clearly reveals things about job candidates that are difficult to detect in a job interview. We had one candidate who did well in an initial interview, but whose assessment results raised some questions. Based on the assessment results, we asked some more focused questions in a subsequent interview. The candidate’s answers to those questions were not what we were looking for, and we subsequently disqualified the candidate. I view the Herrenkohl Consulting assessment as a valuable tool for identifying and hiring people who can and will produce.’’

“. . . The use of the on-line Leadership and Management assessment added a lot of value to the seminar. Everyone clearly enjoyed learning more about themselves! And, each person walked out of the session knowing how to apply the material to his or her own immediate business challenges. So, thank you again, and we look forward to doing more work together in the future.”

‘‘Our sales team was thoroughly impressed, not only with the Motivations Assessment instrument you provided, but even more so with the consultation you provided in their personal one-on-one follow up sessions. Several of them commented to me that, compared to other such services and surveys we have used, Eric Herrenkohl and the assessment you provided were far superior.’’

“Things are going very well for us and we doubled our business in 2007 over 2006. My staff is working well as a team and while none of them were perfect matches for the profile, I felt like the testing has helped know who I was hiring and what their strengths and weakness are/would be. This actually is immensely helpful and I couldn't imagine not using your services going forward.”
