tspFOCUS: a talent assessment solution

Making the right hiring choices can be difficult. Someone might look perfect on paper, but how do you know if they’ll fit with your organization?

That’s where we come in. Our team of Ph.D. industrial / organizational psychologists conducted research with BioOhio member companies. We found the most important competencies for talent across the board, such as communication and team building skills. This insight went into our quick and easy online assessment, which fits right into your hiring process.

Surface-level dialogue with candidates isn’t enough. With our tools, your candidates’ assessment results inform their interviewers – leading to thoughtful and relevant conversations. We’ll even help you interpret test results.

In our partnership with BioOhio, we built several options to fit your needs. They range from a general assessment based on our research with BioOhio members to a completely customized model.

For more information about the tspFOCUS program, please contact Megan Van Hoy, Ph.D., Director – Consulting & Assessment at TSP by email at megan.vanhoy@taylor-strategy.com or any BioOhio team member.

TSP talent solutions

BioOhio members have access to TSP’s talent solutions – whether it’s for a single position, an entire organization, or anywhere in-between.

Our recruiters know resumes and LinkedIn profiles are only part of each candidate’s story. We learn their personalities, motivations, and competencies to make the best placement possible. With our knowledge of healthcare and life science roles and processes, we find the people your business needs.

For an individual search, we determine a search fee based on the length of time spent filling each position. Fees can be as low as 15 percent of a candidate’s annual salary. Your organization will never pay more than 20 percent of a candidate’s total annual compensation.

Looking to scale your organization beyond a few individuals? We build high-quality, cost-effective options to support your organization’s growth. We have a strong network, knowledge of healthcare and life science, and foundation in executive search. We function as an extension of your team, with flexible resources and a process aligned with your culture. Through our partnership with BioOhio, we offer recruitment solutions that start with 10 hours per week of talent acquisition support with a 3-month-minimum contract.

We design and conduct talent assessments in all our solutions. Why? Because it’s crucial to understand how new hires will shape your future.
