Looking to reduce your staff attrition? You’re in the right place.

If you’re asking yourself, “why are so many new hires leaving us?” then you’re not alone.

Getting hiring right is hard, but research shows that the biggest reason new hires fail is simple. It’s called the candidate expectation gap; the disconnect between how candidates expect a job to be like versus the reality of it when they start. And it’s a really big problem…


Of new hires leave their role because of a misalignment between candidate expectations and job realities


Of new hires have left a job because the work culture was different from how they expected it to be ahead of joining.

Why is employee attrition getting worse?

Candidates have more choice than ever before

Low unemployment, flexible working and a surplus of vacancies have created a candidate-driven market

Applying for jobs is as easy as a “one click checkout”

Candidates now only spend seconds reading job ads and some are applying without reading them at all

Traditional recruiting models are becoming ineffective

Generic assessments aren’t effective at reducing attrition. Realistic job previews can help but they aren’t always watched (or believed).

But don’t worry. We can help.

We help companies reduce their new hire attrition for frontline jobs via bespoke pre-hire assessments that take candidates’ through a digital “day-in-the-life” of the job.

We call them Realistic Job Assessments, and they combine digital assessment technology with bespoke realistic job previews to create a more immersive experience for candidates.

An assessment. Unlike any other assessment you’ve ever taken.

We’re convinced assessments work best when they’re based on what people actually do in the job. Our assessments use real world tasks and scenarios to help you identify the best candidates in your recruitment funnel, and to help candidates learn more about the role ahead of joining.

Fact 1:

Any assessment can improve new hire performance and streamline your process. And any realistic job preview can reduce the candidate expectation gap. But separately they’re not enough. ThriveMap is the only platform that combines BOTH.

Fact 2:

Not only this but by combining a realistic job preview with an assessment – the sum is greater than the value of the parts – it assesses better than others and it communicates better than RJPs by being more immersive.

Fact 3:

Plus the approach is more authentic and reality-based because of the bespoke narrative that comes directly from your people, in the jobs that you’re hiring for.

Fact 4:

Implementing a ThriveMap solution into your organisation is as easy as 1,2,3 with our job analysis tool – Signal.

We work with companies worldwide

We’re rapidly becoming known as the best pre-hire assessment tool for high volume recruiters. We’re committed partners and we want to help.

How mature is your hiring process?

There are lots of things that determine a successful recruitment strategy. Is it time to figure out where your weak spots are?

Need a quicker, more accurate way of identifying the best candidates for each job? Create your own unique assessments and score each applicant against your hiring criteria.

Yikes! Do you know the cost of your failed hires?

It’s not a comfortable subject to talk about but it is an important one.

Understanding how much money you lose when a new hire fails can arm you with critical information that will help build a business case for change.
