The 6S Process™

A proven process
and framework that guarantees the right hire, first time.

What our clients are saying

"In my previous role as HR Director, Solutions Driven helped source several sales positions, including a Japan GM and VP Sales Americas. They approached the task aggressively, and we were very happy with the overall results. Solutions Driven have a great process and I would recommend their services."

"Not quite what we were looking for"

How often have you repeated those tragic words back to a recruiter who promised to find you the very best talent for a business-critical role? 20% of the time? 30%? 45%?

Most hiring teams say this happens a staggering 60% of the time. So why continue to take a chance when it comes to your most valuable asset – your people?

On top of that, your time is valuable. And it costs you and your organisation real money when your recruitment process is delayed or just fails because of poor processes and lack of alignment.

At Solutions Driven we take a very different approach. An approach which guarantees delivery of the right hire, first time, every time.

From the start of every new hiring process, we execute our world leading 6S Process™. A process that over that last few years has helped to achieve a 97% Right Hire, First Time success rate for our client partners.

It’s a recruitment process backed by real intelligence. One that attract the world’s best talent, amplifies you employer brand, and reduces bottom line hiring costs.

When it comes to your next executive search or business critical hire, don’t take any chances.


Kickstart the process the right way to avoid pain later.

When it comes to finding the right hire, we start the 6S Process™ with a detailed scoping consultation with your key stakeholders. This helps us to fully understand your culture, needs and hiring requirements so we can design a process and Candidate Value Proposition (CVP) unique to you.

At the same time, we’ll conduct a high-level market analysis to identify possible challenges, and provide you with recommendations around how best to secure top passive talent, suited to your organisation.


Lock in what’s critical for
your next hire.

Say hello to our Candidate Fit Scorecard (CFS). This powerful tool focuses in on the key skills, attributes, experience and qualifications, you desire. We screen and interview candidates using the CFS as our guide, then rank shortlisted candidates against it. We won’t present you with ‘wild cards’ or ‘fillers’; all candidates must have a 90%+ match with your fit requirements.


Discover top talent using the latest technology powered by human intelligence.

With ‘Talent Mapping Intelligence’, we deliver real insights and intelligence into where top talent is located, before applying the right engagement strategy. Our advanced sourcing techniques include x-ray web searching, forensic resourcing methods and networking activity on a global and local level to name just a few.


Analyse candidates to
pinpoint the perfect fit.

Our candidate analysis includes technical, competency and psychometric testing and interviewing. Tests can cover personality, working style, emotional intelligence, leadership ability, high performance indicators and general intelligence. We’ll then present you with 4-6 candidates that meet the Candidate Fit Scorecard to 90+% fit, within a maximum of 4 weeks from assignment kick-off.


Offer and acquire the
desired candidate.

We understand and articulate your CVP to candidates whose career drivers match them. At this stage we link into our 6F Methodology™ – Fit, Freedom, Fulfillment, Family, Fortune, and Future – highlighting any major disconnects. We gradually activate passive candidates during the process, supported by the candidate value proposition, candidate engagement, and client process management.


Successful partnerships are about continuous improvement.

At the start of an assignment we agree measures of success. Our results are then reviewed against this previously agreed criteria at the end of the process, including 2-way improvement actions and NPS (net promoter score) data. We conduct regular candidate and client check-in calls and offer a 12-month free replacement.
