Minimize the Promotion Risk

The Problem: Remember the Peter Principle! The problem is that one does not see the Peter Principle until it is too late. Even though an individual has been an excellent performer in one position, that does not automatically mean they will be successful when promoted. When an individual is unable to meet the demands of the job description, the company is faced with a decision to demote, terminate or educate. An unsuitable promotion is costly in time, money and morale for both the company and the individual. This usually results in the individual exiting the company and it becomes a lose-lose situation.

Our Solution: Before you promote an individual, let us do a comprehensive assessment to ensure that they will be able to reach the objectives of the new position. Minimize the risk of promoting the wrong person by knowing in advance how successful this person will be in their new role.
