The process …

It’s simple! You complete the form and we send you an email with a link to the McQuaig Word Survey®. It’s not an automated process. A real person will send your Free Trial during office hours. This ensures that candidates cannot access the Word Survey to practice.

The Word Survey takes most people 10-15 minutes to complete. Make sure you give yourself enough time to do it and be somewhere quiet, without interruptions. There are no right or wrong answers, it’s just about you.

McQuaig Online generates your results report as soon as you complete the survey. That’s when we really get started! One of the team will contact you to fix a time to feed back your report results. While the Full Report and Candidate Feedback Report are easy to read and use, we really add value in these 20-30 minute feedback sessions.

Although we will talk about you and your report, the purpose of the feedback session is to understand the needs of your business. We explain how McQuaig Online helps HR and hiring managers to identify what they need and gives them the tools to fill the gaps. Beyond hiring, McQuaig gives organisations great value when it comes to developing and retaining their key talent.

The outcome …

We hope that you choose to invest with us!

The outcome for you and your organisation is a deeper understanding of your people. That feeds into your business strategy and helps you to understand strengths, weaknesses and gaps in your teams. Our focus is on helping you to grow your business by maximising your greatest asset – your people.
