The Culmoski Suitability Analysis Tool (CSAT) was developed by a group of senior recruiters and hiring managers who analysed what made a successful placement. Historically much of the metrics used to evaluate recruiter performance failed to give a bigger picture on what makes a really good placement. Whilst some metrics would show how efficiently a hiring process was completed (from vacancy submitted to candidate starting), it would not track speed of progression of the candidate in the firm, or the length of time the candidate stayed at the organisation in comparison to their peer group. If the firm hired the right person for every role, it would represent an enormous saving over repeatedly refilling the position.
Leading recruiters and business partners were consulted about what they described as “their best hires” and then the core elements of suitability broken down to create a weighted evaluation matrix that is adapted for different firms. The three main threads are Cultural, Motivational and Skills. By matching the right company and role profile to the right candidate make-up, both company and candidate have the highest chance for a successful partnership.
