In January 2001 our founder, Spencer Stang, Ph.D., an Industrial and Organizational Psychologist, started a company called SportLab to help professional sports teams select better players. Our research clearly demonstrated that advanced analytics could be used to predict – with incredible accuracy – how well a newly-drafted football player would perform.
Further research indicated that the technology we built for the NFL also worked exceptionally well for helping companies hire and develop better employees. So we converted the technology to specifically address employee hiring and development challenges . . . and Stang Decision Systems was born.
Today, we are a world leader in customized hiring and employee development processes. We help your human resources professionals by providing them with new tools and processes which help them do their job more efficiently and accurately. We help you “highlight the human” in your human resources by selecting for targeted skills, aptitude, and cultural fit.
SDS sets the “new standard” for organizations who want to avoid costly hiring mistakes and maximize their productivity, culture, and competitive advantage.
