With over 3,500 test and assessment providers in North America, choosing one can be very difficult. On one extreme we have expensive assessment centers and specialists that produce solutions that can be as complicated and costly as the problem you are trying to address.
On the other extreme are assessments that simply don't have business ROI or are limited in scope. (They can only be used for hiring and hiring alone for example).
What's the best choice for you? That's a question only you and your leadership team can answer.
Is the "mission critical" business information available in plain language and without need for further interpretation by a consultant or psychologist?
Is the administrative burden of the assessment and performance metrics light or heavy?
Do the assessments in question meet or exceed Department of Labor/HR Authority's standards for reliability and validity?
Do you have a means for validating the effectiveness of the program for your organization?
Do you have access to technical manuals as well as user manuals, legal opinions and validation studies?
Are you certain the assessment you are using is clear of "adverse impact" problems with any identifiable group?
Do you understand the difference between ipsative and normative assessments and are you certain that you are using normative assessments for selection?
Does your proposed assessment take into account differences in workplace culture across geographical and division lines?
Does your proposed workforce productivity and assessment consultant link their service with your performance data to demonstrate ROI?
Is your proposed assessment for selection/hiring an integrated cognitive, workplace behavior/personality and JobFit assessment? If not containing ALL three elements you don't have a robust solution.
Personality alone is only part of the picture.
If you have already purchased a solution you are not happy with- we can help you get the most out of what you do have. In some cases you already have a viable system but would benefit from some help linking the assessments to the workforce plan or to your performance outputs.
Remember the famous business saying “If you aren’t measuring it how can you manage it”? We’ll help you do just that.
Given the serious investment an organization can make in its assessment solution, we'll teach you all the things you need to know to make a good and informed decision- even if you decide not to hire us.
Our process and assessments are top notch, but our style is not for everyone, nor is every potential client a match for us. We’ll have to make that judgment together.
