SuccessFinder, the leader in predictive behavioral talent assessment for the workplace, and BRP, a globally renowned powersports leader, have been recognized in the coveted Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Award. SuccessFinder and BRP have won the Gold award for Best Advance in Assessment Utilization to Guide Talent Decisions. 

" We are delighted to receive recognition from Brandon Hall Group as a leader in the Talent Management sector, and we extend our gratitude to BRP for their role in partnering with us to win this prestigious award through their strategic leadership approach. Together we showcased the true potential of our talent assessment platform to guide hiring decisions, leadership development practice and career progression. "

Jean-Simon Leclerc

Vice-President, Client Solutions and Success, SuccessFinder

The award was achieved thanks to SuccessFinder’s collaboration with BRP, introducing three empirically validated custom leadership benchmarks (one by leadership level). This approach helped BRP deploy a leadership model that clarifies the behaviors to succeed as a leader, but also what it takes to be a BRP leader. 

Drawing from the predictive behavioral insights provided by SuccessFinder, BRP defined a predictive Leadership Model to inform hiring decision and to guide leaders’ development and growth. This helped BRP lower leaders’ turnover rate, build leadership development program that focuses on what matters the most to succeed and enhance leaders’ engagement and satisfaction. 

" What a great accomplishment with our partner SuccessFinder. It was important for us to define a Leadership Model that connects with who we are as an organization and where we want to go next. It's exactly what we built, a predictive leadership model infused with SuccessFinder science and BRP DNA: 1- the skills of talented leaders at BRP and outside BRP; 2- the heart of our culture; 3- the employee experience we want to create; and 4-the future we envision. "
