Balanced scorecard approach

Balanced Scorecard Approach

  • Background / work history

  • Skills / abilities

  • Education / training

  • Competency evaluation

  • Resume / interview

  • Reference check

Republic drivers validation study

The study consisted of 91 male drivers

60 were identified as white, 7 were black, and

24 the race was unknown

Current numbers did not reveal statistically significant racial differences either on performance ratings or Republic Drivers Scale.

Republic Drivers Validation Study

Performance ratings





customer service

equipment use


team orientation



Performance Ratings


Single score determining overall performance

Republic drivers validation study1

Performance evaluations on current DRIVERS tenured with the company at least 6 months were rated on a scale of 1 – 5

1 = Lowest 5 = Highest

14 people who quit or terminated were rated:

1 on REHIRE Score


Republic Drivers Validation Study

Improving driver selection

Correlation Between REHIRE Score and TOTAL REVIEW Score was .90

N = 91

Using a cut off score of 30.5 the TOTAL REVIEW Score would correctly identify all but 2 of the drivers whose REHIRE scores were high * or low *.

The republic drivers personnel report rdpr

There is NO single score on the Republic Drivers Personnel Report that tells you to hire or not hire.

The Republic Drivers Personnel Report (RDPR)

Hired and subsequently left the company. Rehired then tested with the Personnel Report. Productive but hard on the equipment, poor customer service and tried to unite the other drivers against the supervisor.

Areas of Potential Concern

  • Consider carefully and candidate with one or more Areas of Potential Concern. A low score on Factor B is not considered an area for of concern for drivers.

  • If a decision to hire is made there should be additional information to support the candidate’s fit for the position.

  • Having NO areas of potential concern does NOT necessarily indicate suitability for a specific job.
