If Behaviors Don’t Change, Nothing Else Really Matters

Our organization experienced a 169% increase in productivity in 12 months…during a significant downturn in the markets and increased sales targets.”
Jean S. - National Financial Services Firm

Research Based Solutions combines sophisticated online assessments, tracking tools, online self-managed learning and proficiency building, with one-on-one specialized skills development by Research Based Solutions certified coaches. Our mission is to enable your company to hire smarter, train faster and retain longer.

Research Based Solutions identifies and measures specific behaviors statistically proven to help sales and service reps, managers & human resource staff maximize potential in both Sales and Service sectors. We do this in two ways. We identify fundamental behaviors that are generally not cost effective to train and coach, therefore enabling more efficient hiring and correctly positioning existing personnel. Secondly, we develop and coach, at both the associate and management level. As a result, we are a catalyst for creating sustained measurable performance gains, increasing productivity in low, middle and top performers, and developing ‘in house’ manager resources.

Execute Your Strategy More Efficiently

We experienced a 223% increase in sales related activities in 3 months. Representative gross sales increased 183% in 14 months after implementation of the SalesKey® program. Our “Value per Contact” jumped by 55% in 12 months. Finally…our turnover was reduced from 42.5% to 17.2% in 24 months, resulting in a savings of millions of dollars.” John R. - National Financial Services Provider

Research Based Solutions works with companies that desire increased productivity within their sales and service teams. Our approach has enabled sales organizations to increase bottom line sales and service organizations to improve their CSI scores (Customer Satisfaction Index). We promote learning by providing one-on-one coaching and train-the-trainer programs to implement enterprise-wide performance mentoring. Our programs are deployed quickly and intuitively, delivering measurable change from the first day of implementation.
