BHI Announces Launch of New Restaurant Manager Assessment

PLANO, TX — October 13, 2011 — Batrus Hollweg International (BHI), the leading human capital management consulting firm for the restaurant industry, has announced the release of the Restaurant Management Assessment (RMA), a talent management tool designed specifically for the unique recruiting challenges of the restaurant industry.

The Restaurant Management Assessment design is based on BHI’s extensive research and expertise in the industry. The assessment provides a comprehensive appraisal of restaurant management candidates by evaluating eight key competencies that have been determined to be essential for success in restaurant management positions. The RMA includes detailed trait level descriptions and an overall evaluation of the candidate’s qualifications and potential for success.

“BHI has a long history with the restaurant industry,” said Lori Berman, BHI’s Vice President of Talent Solutions. “With over 40 years of experience working with large and small restaurant groups we have the expertise and the research to design a specialized product like this assessment. We are continuously looking for new products and solutions to help the restaurant industry hire the best employees at all levels, and this new assessment will help restaurants raise the bar on management talent.”

One of the distinctive features of the RMA is our unique reporting system, which is all about the “fit”. The assessment identifies candidates who are the best fit with “ideal ranges” for each trait as determined by BHI’s extensive research. Rather than looking at high or low scores, this assessment looks for scores in the “ideal” range that indicate a solid fit with a profile of strong performers.

“Our advanced scoring methods identify a candidate’s fit for the key traits related to restaurant management success,” said Kevin Impelman, Director of the BHI Research Institute. “The assessment is not only a great predictor of restaurant management success, but also provides a rich description of why a candidate may or may not be a good fit for the role by providing in depth information at the trait level. We created the restaurant management assessment with the goals of maximizing prediction while also providing easy to interpret, descriptive reports that help hiring managers and recruiters truly understand the candidate’s strengths and opportunities.”

The Restaurant Management Assessment is part of BHI’s comprehensive service offering of cutting-edge talent management solutions designed to help you select and advance your best people. The RMA is administered online and provides immediate results through the BHI Online Assessment System or the Click and Hire Applicant Tracking System. BHI’s consultants design and implement processes and tools that let you effectively manage your talent from hiring to retirement. BHI partners with you to create integrated systems that save you time and money, and most importantly, nurture the best talent at every level.
