Branding and Recruitment:  SIMA® Assessment Process utilized to help applicants identify their “motivated” abilities and to assist organizations in matching “motivated” abilities to critical job requirements.  Follow-up studies confirm significant increases in performance, retention, satisfaction, morale and relationships with supervisors when an employee “fits” his/her work role.  The utilization of this “fit” concept served to “brand” clients as organizations with capability to optimize employee talent for mutual benefit.  Satisfied, engaged employees also make powerful recruiters!  Many training programs have been delivered to HR staff and technical recruiters to integrate this concept into recruiting practices.
