A comprehensive applicant screening and placement solution is a strategic imperative for leading companies. In today’s competitive environment, FurstPerson is helping progressive companies replace traditional applicant screening practices with continuous data-fed processes built around sophisticated assessments that accurately predict a candidate’s likelihood of success in terms of producing better customer satisfaction, increased sales, and higher customer retention.
FurstPerson is 100% focused on designing and developing assessment tools for customer contact jobs, spanning contact centers, retail, hospitality, sales, field services, and back-office roles. This relatively narrow focus has enabled FurstPerson to develop deep expertise, efficient processes, and proprietary tools and technology that produce exceptional results. For example, FurstPerson’s data warehouse is the largest and richest source of intelligence on customer contact competencies in the world.

FurstPerson began operations in 1997 providing temporary staffing solutions for call centers in Chicago. In 2002, FurstPerson leveraged its technology-enabled recruitment model for clients and began providing web-based pre-employment hiring solutions for the call center industry. We were also early innovators in the home agent market and began providing home agent talent assessment services in 2002. In 2010, clients began asking us to provide similar products and services for their retail, hospitality, field services, and other customer contact roles. This led us to expand our portfolio beyond contact centers to other job families in 2010 which continues today.
