Information Overload

FROM

AGENCY CONSULTING GROUP, INC.

CAN YOU NOW...

Conduct a prescreen interview in order to save time and filter out candidates who won't make the cut ?

Establish a consistent, easy-to-use interviewing process ?

Use the questions and answers you want for all applicants, regardless of position or pay scale ?

Identify the specific areas to focus on for sales, management and support personnel ?

Utilize behavioral interviewing: The difference between could they ever or have they ever?

Score applicants as the interview process progresses to allow you an objective measurement device on the candidate’s interview result?

These employee selection processes are not inborn just because you are a business owner – they have to be learned. Companies who train these functions charge each participant for the information that they pass on to you. And if you don’t know how to perform these personnel functions, regardless of your size, you risk EEOC and/or legal action if you ask the wrong questions...

BUT NOW, AS A CLIENT AND FRIEND OF AGENCY CONSULTING GROUP, INC., YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN A WEBINAR BY THE OMNIA GROUP (A leading testing service to the insurance industry) TO LEARN ALL OF THESE EMPLOYEE SELECTION METHODS AT NO COST (a $70 savings)!!!

As most agents who read the PIPELINE already know, we feel that a key to running an effective agency is in the selection of new and replacement employees. The more care you take at the front end, the less it costs to build an effective agency team. We strongly urge our clients to use testing as one ingredient in the selection process and we have found that OMNIA Group, Inc’s Profile is an excellent tool for determining whether an applicant “fits” the job for which (s)he is applying.

To introduce more agencies to the OMNIA Profile and to have our clients enjoy the buying power of a large group, we have arranged for you to be able to purchase Profiles for your use at any time (they don’t expire) at the cost of no more than $126 per profile (min 2) instead of at the normal cost of $140.00 (min 4) or the single profile cost of $175. The profile is taken on line and the response is sent to you within 3 HOURS.

Simply let us know via e-mail (email to Katrina@agencyconsulting.com ) how many profiles you would like (minimum 2). We will confirm the price (the more agents signing up, the lower the per profile price) via response e-mail and then you will send us your check (to Agency Consulting Group, Inc. 507 N. Kings Hwy, Cherry Hill, NJ 08034). We will register you with your own OMNIA account at the discounted price (if you need more profiles than originally contracted, your cost will be at the same discounted price – another benefit over standard profile costs). An Omnia representative will call you with your on-line profile account to answer questions and familiarize you with the service. AND, AS AN ADDITIONAL BENEFIT, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO JOIN OMNIA IN THEIR INFORMATIVE WEBINAR BEING HELD SPECIALLY FOR AGENCY CONSULTING GROUP, INC. CLIENTS AND FRIENDS COVERING ALL OF THE POINTS HIGHLIGHTED AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS ARTICLE – AT NO COST!!! BASED ON THE NUMBER OF RESPONDENTS TO THIS OFFER, OMNIA WILL SET UP A NUMBER OF DATES AND TIMES FOR THIS WEBINAR AND YOU CAN CHOOSE ONE OR MORE TIMES TO TUNE IN (SAVING $70 IMMEDIATELY BY AVOIDING THE WEBINAR COST).

Please include a) your name, b) the agency name, c) your address, d) your e-mail address and e) phone number in your e-mail response (to Katrina@agencyconsulting.com) as well as f) the number of profiles desired. Wait for our response to send your check to Agency Consulting Group, Inc. 507 N. Kings Hwy, Cherry Hill, NJ 08034 (minimum 2 profiles; your max cost = $126 each vs standard 4 pack @ $140 each and individual profile cost of $175).

We urge you to participate in this mass buying opportunity. You get the same profile and benefit from Omnia as agents paying $175/profile. The buying group will enjoy the benefit of the lower price through April, 2008 (the use of the Profiles have no expiration) when we will evaluate its success and (hopefully) “renew” the process.
