The company believes that employees are not the only ones that should be happy and contented with their career but bosses and employers as well.

Hiring Process: Prevention is Better than Cure
The company is a proponent of professional philosophy of ‘prevention is better than cure.’ Thus, Balance At Work provides services to companies that want to avoid hiring the wrong people who can be a liability to the organization. Whenever a company hires incompetent employees, it suffers the consequences. Australians are known to be serious when it comes to business, thus the company makes sure that its clients’ businesses are protected and prioritized by helping them know the type of applicants that should be hired. The company does this by strengthening and improving the hiring process of its clients, making sure they only hire the best people for the job.
Among the main focuses of the company include psychometric assessment and psychometric testing. Although almost all of Australian companies implement psychometric testing to choose the best applicants for the job, some fail to examine the testing to determine whether it is up-to-date and still effective. With this trend in the Australian employment industry, Balance At Work has fortified its services related to psychometric assessments. Since psychometric assessments and tests provide clear picture about how applicants present themselves in different critical situation and how they communicate with their would-be coworkers and superiors, bolstering these techniques is a must. The company has come up with a wise solution in the form work preferences inventory that was developed by Dr. Dan Harrison, an experienced and reputable research practitioner. With this solution, companies that have problems with regard to their hiring processes will now have the opportunity to weed out unqualified candidates and only choose the most suitable for the job.
