The Selection Process


Requirements analysis

CLA Personnel conducts an assessment of the corporate culture and work environment. We provide, if necessary, assistance in the preparation of job description and comparative analysis of pay scales according to the market and the region.

Research and strategic recruitment

Using the tools we have developed and CLA Personnel’s research and recruitment methods, we find the best possible candidates available on the market. We then proceed to the analysis and selection of qualified potential candidates.

Evaluation of applicants

To ensure that the interests and needs of both parties are compatible we conduct an initial telephone assessment. Depending on the job description, requirements and technical specifications of the position, our recruiters validate details that make all the difference. The selected candidates are then called for an interview with our recruiters.


When needed, the pre-selected candidates must successfully complete a series of exams to evaluate their management, accounting or any other competencies and required skills. CLA Personnel has access to hundreds of evaluations via the IBM Kenexa Employee Assessments platform and EPSI’s COMPMETRICA.

Presentation of candidates

We present the results of our research and introduce you to the profiles of selected candidates.

Client Interviews

We manage appointments according to your availability. CLA Personnel may also prepare, revise or create interview questions, and / or assist or participate in interviews. Our interview rooms are available for your use.

Reference verification

Reference verification is a crucial step in the hiring process. A detailed report of the audit will be handed to you and will include contact details of the solicited candidates.

Job offer

With your cooperation, we will present the best offer possible to the candidate. We are able to support you in every step of the process in terms of writing an offer, legalities or wage and benefits negotiations.


Our placement fees vary depending on the complexity of the position and the duration of the warranty period desired. In general, the industry rule of ninety days (90) prevails, however, CLA Personnel offers the flexibility to choose the format that suits your organization best.

Guaranteed Results

Placement is guaranteed for the period determined above, in the event that the employee left the job or does not meet the job requirements. In the event that none of the job requirements have been modified, we will replace the employee free of charge.
