Our client is a globally recognized software company who was searching for multiple senior sales executives across North America. They had an internal recruitment team as well as used other outside recruitment agencies with little luck. These reps carried a large quota and every day that these roles weren't filled meant they were going to be further and further away from hitting their company's revenue targets.

Download our case study to see how we worked with their internal recruitment team to get these roles filled in a timely manner.


Who you choose as your sales person and how they are enabled and inspired is what makes the difference between success and failure for most companies. Yet hiring great sales people is one of the hardest things to get right. Consider the following:

There are over 22 million sales professionals in North America.
Only 55% of sales hires meet their quota
22% are untrainable and only 10% will provide a ROI.
Annual sales team turnover is over 40% per year.
32% of all sales people have been with their company for less than 12 months.
The cost of a mis-hire is anywhere between 3-6 times of base salary.

What makes hiring sales people so tough? One major factor is that they’re really good at selling themselves. So how do you identify the 20% who are true top performers from those who exaggerate their performance? And how do you identify those that will stay with you from those that will leave too soon?
