Finding candidates with a passion for real estate

The real estate sector is high-priced and customers are demanding. Grossmann & Berger can only build successful client relationships with the right people.

A long-term relationship based on partnership between property consultant and client is the foundation of Grossmann & Berger’s success.

Property consultants must acquire and advise clients, constantly develop their own expertise and work persistently towards a goal. The company has long recognised that a good candidate fit is crucial – even for trainees. A good fit increases the chance that a trainee will become a long-term employee.

For an informed decision: online assessment before the interviews

Grossmann & Berger wanted to make its recruiting decisions more objective than before. In collaboration with softgarden, the online assessments from e³ skillware were integrated.

The real estate professionals now recognise an applicant’s skills immediately. As a result, Grossmann & Berger not only finds the best candidates, but also reduces its recruiting costs.

The assessment is also uncomplicated and varied for the applicants. They now take place before the first interviews and provide Grossmann & Berger with crucial information on the suitability of the candidates.

e³ skillware can be seamlessly integrated into softgarden’s applicant management system. Grossmann & Berger can send invitations to a customised or preconfigured online assessment directly from the system.

All the data collected online is then collated and clearly presented in a results report. Grossmann & Berger appreciates both the ease of use and the additional objective information it obtains about its candidates.

More precise and faster recruiting

With the online assessments from e³ skillware integrated into softgarden, Grossmann & Berger tests personal, social and cognitive skills before the first interview. The property service provider was able to shorten its time-to-hire enormously, invite suitable candidates to an interview more quickly and compare its applicants more objectively. The standardised application process optimises recruiting – especially the selection of trainees.

  • Save time through better pre-selection: Recognise whether your candidate matches your job profile before the first interview. This allows you to invite only the best candidates to an in-depth interview.
  • Lower costs, better employee fit: Reduce your cost-of-vacancy for filling a position and secure employees who will support your company in the long term.
  • Speed up and simplify processes: Assessment invitation, evaluation and decision all in one tool? The complete integration in softgarden makes it possible. Then it’s just one click to the interview.
