About Employee Assessments

In many organizations, recruiting and hiring costs are among the largest budget line items.  Turnover costs are out of control.  Employee assessments can help to drastically reduce the wasted money, time and resources of traditional hiring processes.

Valid, reliable employee assessments can give your recruiters and hiring managers consistent, in-depth, and objective information about job candidates and employees. This includes:

  • Fit with organizational culture, job, manager, and team
  • Knowledge, skills, job performance, and developmental needs
  • Preferred learning and communication style
  • Integrity, reliability and work ethic, and attitude towards substance abuse
  • Response to conflict, stress, and frustration and likelihood of aggression

Information from assessments helps leaders and managers make smarter people decisions and rely less on gut instinct (which often results in bad hires). The specific benefits include:

  • Selecting people most likely to ‘fit, ‘succeed and stay in a job
  • Slashing the time necessary for people to become fully productive in a new role
  • Improving alignment and communication between managers and employees
  • Reducing workforce conflict and improving employee satisfaction
  • Maximizing each employee’s contribution to the organization
  • Reducing employee absenteeism and turnover
  • Reducing frequency and cost of theft
  • Increasing sales performance and customer loyalty
  • Enabling strategic workforce management and succession planning
  • Increasing overall workforce capability, productivity, and agility
