Behavioral Assessments Inform Critical Talent Decisions
Based on robust principles and designed for return on investment, our behavioral assessments identify which character traits are best suited for various roles within your organization. By selecting for cultural fit, predicting retention based on personal characteristics, and identifying behavioral tendencies that influence job performance, we can help you reduce turnover and improve retention rates among existing employees and new hires.
Our assessments incorporate:
- Biographical data—Past behavior and experiences that act as indicators of commitment
- Personality profiles—Stable characteristics that influence whether a person will stay or leave
- Motivating values – Personal priorities that drive behavior and goal attainment
Our competency-based assessments correlate skills and ability with criteria statistically indicative of job success. We test for nine behavioral competencies including work ethic, customer focus, teamwork, compassion, openness to learning, valuing diversity, energy, flexibility/adaptability, and multi-tasking.
By focusing on both hard and soft skills during the hiring process, we can help you identify and cultivate the right talent for your business.
Choose Strong Leaders to Grow Your Business
Despite spending nearly $14 billion dollars every year on leadership and development activities (McKinsey & Co), companies still express deep concerns about leadership, with 86% of global business leaders stating leadership is a top issue. Internal promotion of talented individual contributors often results in the discovery that personal production doesn’t always translate into effective leadership and among externally hired senior leaders, nearly half fail in less than two years according to CEB.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Our competency-based leadership assessments evaluate ten critical leadership competencies designed to identify successful leaders. These include behavioral indicators such as:
- Achievement orientation
- Critical thinking skills
- Customer orientation
- Response to change
- Emotional stability
Armed with our assessment insights, you can predict how a particular candidate is likely to perform in the context of your business before you make the hiring decision, leading to reduced turnover and improved employee engagement.
