This system helps you understand, assimilate and execute today’s best processes, programs and practices for Sourcing and Marketing to potential candidates, Assessing and Recruiting top talent, Retaining & Training employees and Transforming your organization for the better. This complete system is detailed and outlined in Patrick Ropella's step-by-step book, The Right Hire.

Sourcing & Marketing

The first stage in managing talent is to adequately prepare for the search by developing an effective selection process to ensure that the flow of information extends to the entire selection team.

Creating a good flow of information will also help you avoid common communication challenges between the candidate, their influencers, as well as the HR and the Hiring manager.

Assessing & Recruiting

Make sure your potential candidate is the right fit for the job, division, company, culture, community, and more!

Once you find potential candidates, don't drop the ball by fumbling the recruiting process. Learn ways to streamline the process, eliminate confusion and misunderstandings, and more!

Retention & Training

Attention to your staff not only helps groom and develop future potential, but also vastly trims turnover expenses.

Take your staff and organization to the next level by investing in their skills and potential.


Globalization and evolving technology has made the need for innovation greater than ever. Yet many companies are being left behind. Ropella can help transform your organization’s creativity, productivity and alignment by improving core leadership skills—the foundation of innovation and organizational improvement.
