Marc Wenzel, Ph.D. Joins Shaker Consulting Group

Shaker Consulting Group, the market leader in custom simulations for pre-employment testing is bolstering rapid business growth with the addition of assessment industry expert Marc Wenzel, Ph.D.  Wenzel’s previous experience in market development with Pan Testing and ThinkWise Inc. makes him a distinctive addition to our team,” said Shaker president Brian Stern, Ph.D..

“Marc has a truly unique depth of experience working with large companies to solve complex staffing challenges,” said Joseph P. Murphy, executive vice president at Shaker.  From his work with high-population jobs to assessing partners at Accenture and candidates for higher volume roles at talent leaders like P&G, and Dow Chemical, Marc brings a strong focus on rigor and HR Analytics which business leaders appreciate.  Marc has great capabilities to demonstrate how HR Analytics are tied to commercial outcomes through staffing process improvement.

Companies that hire 100’s or 1,000’s of people into one job require a specialized candidate evaluation solution.  Shaker’s core service offering, theVirtual Job Tryout®, deploys evidence-based management practices for staffing in high-population jobs.  The demand for these services at Shaker was up 30% in 2012.  The high return on investment (ROI) from these staffing process improvement initiatives has  fueled new client growth.  Equally notable, the continued year-over-year ROI has contributed to significant growth from existing clients as they expand their use of the Virtual Job Tryout into additional critical roles.

“I have had my eye on Shaker for over 10 years, and had the personal experience of installing the Virtual Job Tryout as a customer inside a large bank. There is really no one else like them in the assessment market.  Finding a company that can give relevant, rigorous talent data that business leaders can use along with the attention to the candidate experience is a rarity in our field.” said Marc. “Not surprisingly, Shaker has attracted a roster of world class clients who leverage the information to build a workforce that delivers superior results.  I am excited to be joining an organization with a brilliant solution for brand-conscious organizations seeking to deliver an exceptionally engaging candidate experience.
