Launching and Continuously Improving the HirePayoff™ Product Draws on Decades of Experience in the Field of Candidate Assessment and Selection Across Nearly Every Business Sector.
The HirePayoff™ division of Growth Ventures, Inc. announced today that Rand Gottschalk has taken the role of Executive Vice President – Operations. “When it comes to designing, validating, and continuously improving candidate assessment tools, few have the hands-on experience Rand brings to our initiative,” says David Jones, the company’s founder. “Rand’s experience in creating tools to meet the challenges of today’s legal compliance standards magnifies the ways he will help build value in our HirePayoff™ product,” adds Jones.
Rand Gottschalk has more than 25 years’ experience as a human resources consultant, with emphasis on developing, validating, and implementing essentially all types of candidate screening, assessment and certification tools to drive both selection and placement decisions. He has focused on both R&D and “on the ground” implementation of assessment systems across North America, as well as Central and Eastern Europe. His expertise in data mining, statistical analysis and framing platforms to document selection procedure job-relatedness, validity, and legal compliance is exceptional in the Industrial and Organizational Psychology profession.
Rand served as one of the initial members of HRStrategies, an HR consulting and recruitment process outsourcing company that grew to international status prior to acquisition by today’s Aon-Hewitt. Later, he took the role of Senior Vice President and Regional Director of Aon Consulting’s Selection and Assessment Division. In addition, he was an Executive Consultant at Personnel Decisions International (PDI), and worked with an emphasis on implementing the latest technology-based assessment solutions as Director of Human Resources Consulting at Talent Technology Corporation (TTC).
Rand has designed, validated and implemented recruiting and hiring systems for companies across most major business sectors, including pharmaceutical, automotive, tobacco, metal processing, consulting, consumer products, retail sales, and others. He was worked at multiple levels, developing and implementing assessment systems for positions ranging from entry-level labor, sales, and service positions, to occupations at professional, managerial and executive levels.
His work has emphasized the development of assessments meeting the highest technical quality standards, while appealing to clients and candidates because of their appearance and ease of use. In the new technology-driven world of assessment, he focuses on implementing solutions and capturing data to continually improve recruiting and hiring process and outcomes, laying the foundation to bring Six Sigma to the world of recruitment and hiring. Rand also has played a key role in many legal compliance assignments, using statistical analyses, Uniform Guidelines principles, and current legal compliance standards to frame both challenge and defense of employment systems. He has played a key role in creating the HirePayoff™ solution.
