Sales Candidate Assessment

Use objective evidence to make the right sales hiring decisions

The Chally Assessment gives you quick, easy access to reliable predictions of sales capacity. With our selection reports, you’ll know at a glance if a candidate is a good fit for your role. The report then gives you details on the competencies and motives of the candidate along with what behaviors you can expect him/her to demonstrate on the job.

Watch “Making Better Hires” with Blythe Kazmierczak

Is selling complex software solutions to senior executives the same as selling products over the phone? The answer, of course, is no. The reality is that most organizations have four to six different types of sales roles. The key to successful sales hiring lies in identifying the competencies and behaviors that statistically differentiate between top and bottom performers for a specific position and then using objective evidence to determine if your candidate has the aptitude to succeed in that role.
