Behavioral Profiling Services for Businesses
Run a successful business by finding the right employees to do the job. Don’t take chances by hiring someone who seems qualified but isn’t the right fit for your business. The Burling Group in Chicago, Illinois, provides behavioral profiling services to ensure your new employees have what it takes to succeed at your business—and help your business succeed.
Since 1988, we have specialized in executive assessment searches. In doing the assessment searches it's been part of our progression to move into using candidate profiling, which has increased our success rate to about 94%. Now we are offering this to corporations, privately-owned businesses, and family-owned companies.
Comprehensive Employee Assessments & Evaluations
In addition to customized executive assessment searches, we help unhappy employees determine the type of position in a company they really should have. We also work with job hunters to find the career they really want. For individuals, our staff coaches them on how to effectively interview, identify questions, and respond appropriately.
For businesses, we help managers identify the key to employee interviewing and employee coaching. In the process, we teach companies to do their own behavioral profiling. By translating the information of an assessment and putting it into practice, employers ensure a happy and successful workforce.
Profiling Candidates for the Right Position
Few things are more important for a company than hiring quality employees. A basic job interview isn’t going to be enough to determine the strengths and weaknesses of an applicant. By conducting candidate profiling, we identify only the top talent for your company and the position. The Burling Group is a name built on experience, quality, and a commitment to be the best. You can trust our professional to locate the perfect talent to help your business succeed.

Ron was instrumental in helping us build Globe Union Group into a leading player in the kitchen and bath industry in a short period of time. His services were full-circle: he enabled us to hire, manage and outplace extremely well.
Ron helped us hire the best candidates and assisted them in developing their innate potential through his ability to understand what makes someone tick and insights into how to get people to achieve peak performance. He got to know our internal folks intimately via in-depth interviews and the appropriate application of behavioral tools. Then Ron helped us draft meaningful candidate profiles that were designed to identify excellent prospects who would complement our team.
Next, we utilized these and Ron's other tools to create personal leadership development and succession plans for most of our directors and vice presidents, about twenty people in total. In the rare occasion when someone was not the right fit for our company going forward, Ron provided outplacement services which included presentation skills development and interview training, once again while appropriately leveraging behavioral tools.
Finally, when my two older children were seniors in college, I hired Ron to help them with career coaching and interview training. Both secured dream jobs with international consulting firms and went on to top business schools (Stanford & Harvard).
