DALLAS, July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kingsley Gate Partners, a global executive search firm launched this year to address talent recruitment needs in the digital age, today unveiled ClientSuite, its novel software-as-a-service platform that enables client companies to view status in real-time of candidates under consideration from the company's selectively curated 1.6 million-member executive database, as well as key attributes and metrics related to candidates' work experience, skills and management styles, for any searches underway. In addition, 'Kingsley Gate MapFit' is a customized offering within ClientSuite that, with one click, provides a multi-tiered, unbiased assessment -- within 72 hours -- comprising the range and depth of candidates' thinking processes as well as emotional intelligence.
"Our ClientSuite launch is a milestone in our firm's development, as it ideally melds our executive search expertise, data analytics, efficient technology as well as our strong values regarding collaboration and transparency, in a robust, yet intuitive user-friendly platform," said Nancy Albertini, founding partner, Office of the CEO at Kingsley Gate Partners.
ClientSuite gives Kingsley Gate Partners clients the ability to log in at any time, view candidate profiles based on priority attributes and should job requirements shift and change as the search is underway, re-order those priority attributes to assess new potential candidate options recommended by Kingsley Gate professionals. In addition, clients can review candidate information that goes beyond work history to include past compensation, and see detailed status updates regarding interviews and research Kingsley Gate Partners may be conducting on particular executives.
"We recognize that even though we are working with the industry's top talent, experience and skills only go so far in identifying which candidates will be successful matches because emotional and psychological variables play significant roles in predicting performance as well as cultural fit," said Buster Houchins, Senior Partner, Office of the CEO at Kingsley Gate Partners. "That's why Kingsley Gate MapFit is so important – it very quickly unifies our expert internal assessments and industry interviews with independent, third-party analyses to provide clients with an additional level of the critical information they need for candidate selection."
Unlike other executive search firms that conduct candidate psychological assessments in-house, Kingsley Gate MapFit has partnered exclusively with Management Alignment Partner AG (MAP) to offer its MapFit online evaluation in its MapFit ClientSuite solution. MapFit analyzes how a person creates, solves, decides and remembers, and scientifically measures qualities such as handling unstructured problems, dealing with minimum data, flexibility, connecting ideas, intuition, vision, openness to new ideas and many more aspects of a candidate that help determine cultural alignment. MapFit is one component in a comprehensive three-part analysis Kingsley Gate Partners provides to its clients, which also factors in its own assessment and references based on feedback from the candidate's previous colleagues.
"We are pleased to partner with the professionals at Kingsley Gate Partners to implement MapFit into their rigorous analyses to help global corporations identify the best leaders based not only on industry credentials and successful track records, but the panoply of distinct emotional and intellectual qualities that help predict a candidate's fit and performance within a new organization," said Derek Leebaert, MAP co-founder.
Clients have already experienced the advantages of working with Kingsley Gate Partners. The firm works with global companies like SAP, Veritas, Best Buy, Medtronic, Ford, Warburg Pincus, Ernst & Young and Cargill.
