SRI’s candidate evaluation methodology – FACT

Creates superior executive search outcomes

With surprising regularity, high-profile industry executives are leaving their posts prematurely at enormous cost to their organisations.

SRI created FACTSM to drive rigorous, objective evaluation of candidates’ Functional Accomplishments (what they’ve done) and Competency Traits (how they’ve done it) which together indicate their ability to fulfil future role requirements.

Guards against bias and promotes diversity

FACTSM supports the structured measurement and rigour needed to minimise implicit bias in candidate evaluation. FACTSM guards against the potential for ‘fit’ becoming a proxy for ‘similar to us’.

SRI’s commitment to proactive research and sourcing of networks for under-represented groups, uncovers the broadest set of potential qualified candidates for executive search mandates.
