Sales Talent Management
Why shouldn’t I simply model my top performers when I go out to hire?
Many skills desirable in top performers are also exhibited in low performers. These skills, called false predictors, do not isolate top performers and if not screened out will mislead you to hiring bottom performers.
  Predictive Analytics to put the right sales professionals in the right roles
Most of our clients admit their hiring accuracy is well below 50%, even in the 30's! Contemplate that and consider that sales people are responsible for the lifeblood of your company: revenue.

It isn't just hiring; it's internal selection as well. 65% of sales people who fail do so because they are in the wrong type of sales for their talent or skill base.
The single greatest impact on revenue improvement is accurate sales selection. More than training, coaching or technology.

Sales talent management problems like this can be solved!
Pretium partners with the Chally Group to help clients:
  • Achieve selection accuracy high as 85%
  • Reduce cost of sales by dramatically reducing hiring costs and reducing undesirable turnover
  • Place existing sales people in roles where they have the best chance to succeed
  • Promote the right people to sales management instead of simply rewarding the top performers
  • Determine skill and competency gaps for focused training
  • Reduce time to hire
  • Significantly improve ramp-up time

The secret is in Chally's unique science that identifies skills exhibited by top performers yet absent from bottom performers revealing the skills that
predict success for each unique sales role. Chally's sales skill assessment predicts a person's potential to perform over 140 job-related skills or competencies; it does not describe one's personality.

For over 40 years, Chally has specialized in sales skill assessments. Their research, including assessment data from over 250,000 sales professionals, has identified 14 validated sales profiles…because all sales are not the same.
