Recruiting with DISC

The Missing Piece for Better Hiring

Being able to recruit for technical skills is not enough. You need a thorough understanding of the non-technical, interpersonal skills of your candidates to make the best selection decision. DISC Profiling can give you this critical edge and help you hire, develop, and retain the right people.

It’s not about putting people into boxes, it’s about empowering your people with the tools they need to succeed.

As a successful consultant or professional, you know what the defining factor for high performance is and it’s never technical skills. It’s always managing the people side in any endeavour.


When the cost of hiring the wrong employee can be astronomical, it’s critical to get recruitment right the first time. While estimates on the cost of a bad hire vary within research – all the research agrees that it is a substantial cost not only in advertising but in the valuable time of HR personnel and managers.


Beyond the known financial cost, getting your recruitment decisions right is critical for ensuring you do not see slumps in your organisation’s culture, engagement, morale, productivity, and performance.


DISC is a behavioural assessment that can help you identify the best candidates for your open positions, and ultimately retain them. By understanding how people prefer to interact, you can make more informed hiring decisions that lead to better employee experiences and performance.

Why is DISC Effective for Recruitment?

As a valuable piece of the puzzle in hiring the best person for a role, DISC measures the degree to which an individual displays four key behavioural styles: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientious. Everyone has their unique level of each behavioural style in the context of their role. The four-quadrant model explains the behaviour of people with high degrees of D, I, S, and C.
