Develop a process to effectively manage high growth while hiring top performers.
Plum was tasked with assessing each candidate on fluid intelligence to identify top candidates.
Plum accurately measured the attributes needed for each open job position and saved Stripes39 thousands of dollars that would have been lost to turnover.
Stripes39 had gone through a growth phase with intensive hiring and many of those hires were unsuccessful, causing a scaling back of the organization's size and capabilities.
“There was a level of fear and paranoia over hiring, nobody wanted to hire anymore, it was a nightmare and nobody wanted to go through that again.”
The management team had to get to the root of the problem.
“How do we better vet people so we know they will work out and we can have a better likelihood of success.”
It was important to Stripes39 to hire people with fluid intelligence but the question was how could that measure be inserted into the hiring process - that’s where Plum fit.
“Plum measured the attributes that were important to a person successfully fitting into our company and culture, attributes like problem solving.”
Stripes39 first tested everyone in the company and the accuracy of the results gave them the confidence to move forward for external hires.
“It was ridiculous how accurate the Plum assessment was with every member of our team.”
Plum is now the core tool to ensure Stripes39 hires the right people. They know any new hires will have the attributes to fit, contribute and grow with the company and Stripes39 now feels that they are in a tremendous position to add only the best candidates.
“Because of Plum, we are no longer wasting tens of thousands of dollars on bad hires.”
