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.
