Coaching Mentoring and People Development

CRC Services uses the Thomas International System to add value to our clients

Our clients rely on us for advice and assistance on a range of issues – from people development, leadership development and organisational redesign, to training, coaching and mentoring.

And with employers saying they need to focus on leadership and front-line people management in order to meet their business objectives the opportunities should be endless.

But the truth is that learning and development budgets remain under pressure. And it’s still a challenge getting clients to agree they should do something now rather than in six months’ time. So, how do we add value to your clients and get you to commit now, whilst streamlining our ability to get up to speed with your people?

We use Thomas assessments to help us and our client to very rapidly understand which of our client’s people are right for development. With the help of the Thomas System we are able to give our interventions and programmes more impact by identifying each individual’s strengths and limitations – and by pinpointing their specific areas for development.

We use Thomas assessments to develop highly relevant and highly targeted interventions that will have the maximum effect on our client’s people, and we will be adding value like never before.
We use People assessments to assist Individuals to understand and manage themselves better and to help them progress in their chosen career by understanding their own strengths and weaknesses. It is therefore an effective tool which can be utilised by both. Directly for the Individual as well as for Organisations who want to manage their teams. Thomas can transform the performance of your teams and individuals, delivering an immediate impact on your business.

Spanning the entire employee lifecycle, from recruiting and retaining staff, to developing and managing performance, our assessments will give you a high level of certainty in all of your people decisions.

The key to effective leadership in any business lies in understanding which person you should hire, which you should promote, what makes a top performer, what motivates them, their core strengths, their limitations and the value they add to a team. But what will really set your business apart is benchmarking the behaviours and abilities that will deliver success in your organisation, and managing your people into high performance.

Thomas’ people assessment tools will empower you to do this. We use Thomas’ assessments to gain insight into, manage and develop the behaviours, aptitude, abilities, competencies and hard skills that will take your business or if you are an individual to another level.

Behavioural profiling – Adding certainty to your people decisions

Personality and behavioural profiling in the work place provides an accurate insight into how people behave at work.

Businesses use behavioural profiling to gain a greater level of certainty in their recruitment and development programmes, and the focus to boost their people management capabilities and staff retention initiatives.

These types of assessment look at how people behave at work and answer questions such as:

  • What motivates them?
  • What are their strengths and limitations?
  • What is their preferred communication style?
  • How do they interact with their colleagues?
  • What is their value to the organisation?
  • Are they modifying their preferred behaviour to adapt to their current job?
  • How do they behave under pressure?
  • Are they showing any frustrations in the workplace?
  • What management style will get the best out of them?

We use Thomas PPA, our behavioural profile, to recruit the right person for the right job; understand how to improve morale and engagement to drive down staff turnover, pinpoint who is ready for development and in precisely which areas; and boost your people management abilities.

Recruiting

The right hiring decision can have a huge impact on the performance of your team, function or line of business.

Get it wrong and you’re looking at a cost of up to 2.5 times the individual’s salary. And the disruption to your business and your teams can be considerable.

Thomas will enable you to add certainty to your recruitment and selection decisions. We’ll help you to benchmark the successful behaviours and abilities for your roles. And we’ll give you the tools to identify the candidates with an ideal fit. Which means your recruitment process will be quicker and your selection decisions clearer.

Retaining Your Human Capital

With one in four employees stating they intend to leave their employer in the next 12 months*, retaining staff is critical to delivering success in any organisation.

Get it right and you’re delivering consistently on your business targets with a happy, loyal workforce. Get it wrong and you’re investing cash in new recruits, and dealing with disruption to the business.

Thomas will provide you with the tools to effectively motivate your people, ensure morale is high and create engagement. Which means you can optimise performance and reduce attrition.

Developing your Human Capital

Leadership and front-line people management are the skills that employers say they need to focus on in order to meet their business objectives over the next two years.*

But with training budgets under more pressure than ever, how do you make sure your learning and development investment counts?

Thomas will enable you to quickly understand which of your people are right for up-skilling. We’ll help to give your training more impact by identifying each individual’s areas for development. And we’ll give you the tools to make you a more effective people manager, enabling you to transform the performance of your teams and individuals.

Managing your Human Capital

On average, 80% of management time is spent on poor performers*. But with so little attention directed at top and good performers, how do you ensure you’re investing the right amount of effort to get maximum results?

Thomas will enable you to rapidly get an in-depth understanding of your people. We’ll help you pinpoint why your people do – and don’t – perform well. And we’ll give you the tools to manage your people performance effectively, freeing you up to focus your time on adding real value to the business.
