How we can help
How it Works
Every aspect of a company’s proposed operation is analyzed.
LED FastStart® pairs its world-class team with a company’s subject matter experts at any location in the world mirroring the new operations. If the company has a unique process, FastStart will work with the R&D and engineering departments to gather necessary critical data. Final approval of all plans rests solely with the client.
FastStart sets forth to find the best potential talent.
After a complete analysis of the company, FastStart determines the competencies and behaviors that match the cultural and technical abilities that will help define the most successful employee.
Pre-hire evaluations mean the best candidates are selected.
Critical data is collected for each applicant through behavioral interviews, job observations, situational role-playing, pre-employment training and hands-on simulations. Evaluations are scored and sorted, allowing the company to select the best candidates.
Customized and comprehensive training delivers a strong workforce.
