About Fermion

“How to Select Good Staff & Keep Them”

Fermion is an Australian owned, Wollongong based, People & Culture Consultancy that works with businesses and organisations on “How to Select Good Staff & Keep them”.

Mis-hires are costly; as is losing good staff prematurely.  Fortunately, both problems are preventable.

Selecting good staff and keeping them is a readily achievable goal and one that will improve the productivity and performance of any organisation.  By applying the findings of workplace  psychology with our knowledge of human instincts and biases, Fermion will develop a unique standardised process for your organisation that will significantly improve your recruitment decisions and reduce the likelihood of losing good staff prematurely.

Fermion is owned and operated by its founder and Director, Christopher Apps.  Christopher has over 20 years’ continuous experience as a Psychologist working in the field of assessments and psychometric testing. Over the past 13 years he has specialised in the area of psychometric testing for recruitment and staff retention, with a keen interest in workplace psychology and keeping up to date with the latest research.  Christopher is motivated by a desire to remain contemporary, well-informed and professional.  He is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency and such is bound by a Code of Conduct and obligated to undertake ongoing professional development. This give his clients, and potential clients, assurances of ethical and professional behaviour and an avenue to complain if those standards are not met.

Fermion has many long-term clients based in Wollongong, Sydney, and throughout Australia.  Being Wollongong based does not limit Fermion’s capacity to work with their current or future clients.  Knowledge and expertise have no geographical boundaries, but operating costs do – why should you, as a client, pay for someone’s else high capital city operating costs. Fermion will show you how to select good staff and keep them at a fraction of the cost of one poor hiring decision or losing one good employee prematurely. Having your own system for selecting good staff and keeping them does not cost a lot of money when compared to the costs of hiring the wrong person or losing a good employee.

Fermion’s mission is simple, we aspire to:

  • Offer evidence-based contemporary solutions
  • Be professional and accountable
  • Have a customer-centric approach to all our work
  • Help our clients select good staff and keep them
