Find the right candidate with 4D Talent Acquisition and avoid the emotional and financial cost of a bad hire


4D Talent Acquisition is a unique 4-step approach across the acquisition journey from start to finish and is completely bespoke to match the requirements of the role and the organisation.

The 4D process enables us to find the right person for the right job. We work with you to facilitate and develop a customised and unique job performance formula, including behavioural success factors, which objectively measures for both candidate eligibility and suitability.

Results from the objective digital assessment are used to screen all candidates to identify your talent pool and create a strong shortlist of high-potential candidates for that all-important interview phase.

Comprehensive reports, interview and attraction guides help you to explore the fit and expectations of both organisation and candidate, so you can make a confident hiring decision.

What our clients say

Alistair Crerar, Managing Director, Acre Design Isabelle Huysmans, General Manager EMEA, Microline Surgical International Brian Scott, HR Manager, Entek International
“The process of hiring my next recruit has been like night and day compared to before using 4D – it has been an incredible journey.

I am absolutely certain each successful candidate is going to be the right fit with the right skills and will be working with my organisation for many years to come.

The cost of a bad hire is a cost I have borne too many times before; the cost of doing the process properly using4D has been far less than any recruiter fee.  I know with certainty that the company will benefit immensely from using this process for recruitment moving forward.”

“It’s true our acquisition lead time has reduced tremendously. That is of course very valuable, but what’s more valuable is that the system helps us to find the right person for the role, and also for our team, with one hiring campaign.

We have only had one mis-hire so far; we’d only just started using the system and were not as experienced with it as we are now. The data clearly informed us this person might not be right for us, but we went and interviewed them anyway. We really liked them and decided to give them a chance, but realised in the probation period they was not going to be able to deliver on expectations.

From then on, we’ve put our faith in the system – still keeping our critical eye of course – and have hired great fits since. 4D is helping us to create a great team, without the disruption of bad hires”

“Using this process as a recruitment aid allows us to see things in candidates that we wouldn’t otherwise see.  Aside from all the positive aspects the behavioural analysis brings, it also gives us an insight to quickly identify any unsuitable candidates, an extremely important factor when deciding who fills an important role within your business.

We can confidently identify when a candidate is not right for a particular role – which is just as important to your business as hiring the correct candidate and should never be overlooked or underestimated in terms of cost to the business.
