Raines International Launches Pioneering Executive Assessment Process

December 17, 2020, New York, NY:  Raines International, one of the leading talent consulting and executive search firms in the Americas, announced today the launch of a pioneering executive assessment process to identify the best candidates and put them in the best position to maximize future impact.

Current executive assessments lack actionable next steps. Raines’ methodology, serving clients across Private Equity, start-ups, high-growth organizations, and Fortune 1000 corporations, brings a new lens to succession planning, onboarding, senior team alignment, executive hires, and promotions in a highly fragmented, highly varied billion-dollar industry.

This proprietary assessment relies on six Difference Maker™ attributes to identify which individuals are more inclined than others to make a significant difference in critical situations. Tailored to the unique underlying change agenda of each client, this process provides straightforward recommendations, actionable growth and support plans for each candidate, scorecard-centric feedback, forward-looking data with a leadership ecosystem lens, and a built-in validation process.

As part of Raines’ Leadership & Organizational Transformation (LOT) practice, this assessment combines cutting-edge psychometrics with deep structured interviews to select, promote, and develop both individuals and leadership teams. Raines’ LOT practice, which launched in May when Dr. Scott Thomas joined as Managing Director, offers clients a structured approach to solving management and human capital challenges.

“People make or break the mission, vision, and values of the organization. Our assessment process surfaces uncommon insights that shed light into how your leadership can make the most profound impact. These insights generate concrete actions that are transparent to the highest levels of leadership and the Board,” said Thomas, head of the firm’s LOT practice. “Further, we prove our work by measuring the ROI of assessments against any outcome variables that differentiate individuals against the market. Raines has raised the standard and advanced the industry.”
