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.

Testimonials

We have worked with the Burling Group since 2012.  Initially, we utilized Ron’s skill set to assist us with profiling potential new associates.  Ron’s insights and observations helped us establish criteria to hire successful associates.  Integrating Ron into the front end of the hiring process saved us time, money, and effort in identifying and hiring excellent associates.

By profiling the firm’s partners, Ron has given us valuable knowledge on how we work together and a better understanding of each partner’s professional strengths and weaknesses.  Ron continues to profile potential partners joining our firm providing us feedback on their professional styles.

As our firm begins to succession plan, The Burling Group has provided great insight on potential firm leadership.  Ron’s direct analysis and coaching ability complements our mentoring of managers as they grow into their roles.  Further, Ron continues to counsel our partners and key employees as our business expands.

Thank you to the Burling Group for the coaching and tools that helped me to evaluate the next steps in my career. I found the Behavioral Survey tool to be extremely accurate. Combined with coaching the value was maximized by challenging me to find ways to better understand how my personality traits aligned with the expectations of the potential role. That included a full evaluation of the job description against my personality as well as refining additional questions I needed to ask the hiring manager for a complete understanding. Around 10 months ago I was offered/accepted the role which has proven to be the right choice. I plan to continue to use the coaching and corresponding tools from the Burling Group as I continue to grow in my career.

I recommend Ron Deitch most highly. He's a consummate professional and a delightful and wise man.

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).
