Why use assessments
Why use Assessments?

  • Many companies find a 25% or more reduction in turnover from implementing quality assessments like JobCLUES.

  • ACC cost can decrease 5% or more from using valid personality assessments that measure “rules orientation” in industrial environments.

How do assessments fit into the selection process
How do Assessments fit into the Selection Process?

There are 3 major components to consider when looking at job fit in the selection process. All 3 of these components are critically important and usually carry equal weight in any hiring decision:

  • Attitudinal Fit – does the person have the attitudes you want to fit in with the company’s culture?

  • Knowledge, Skills & Experience Fit – does the person have the skill set, education, training and certifications necessary to do the job?

  • Cognitive and Behavioral Traits – does the person have the core traits and cognitive abilities found to be successful in the job?

    See the diagram on the following page:

Basic faq s
Basic FAQ’s report for the Attitude Assessment:

  • How many generic job categories are available? There are currently over 52 generic job category reports including Administrative, Customer Service, Call Center, Persuasive Sales, Retail Sales, Light Industrial, Management, Financial, Bank Teller, Health Care Provider and many more.

  • Do I give the applicants all the assessments at once? Most companies will give the Attitude assessment to all applicants who reach a certain step in the process and then will give the personality and cognitive assessment to the remaining applicants who reach another step in the process. This is determined by your own process and what is most convenient for you.

  • What if I don’t have online access? The assessments can be taken paper/pencil and then entered into the online system by the administrator.

  • How do I modify the profiles to meet my specific job requirements? It is important that you look at your specific positions and determine what traits and cognitive abilities are necessary for success. Then we can set up your own custom profile in the system for your reports.

Legal faq s
Legal FAQ’s report for the Attitude Assessment:

  • Do the assessments comply with EEOC guidelines? Yes. The assessments were also constructed in accordance with the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing.

  • Is it legal to give these assessments? Yes, if you are gathering information that is relevant to the job

  • Do I have to give the applicant their results? Most companies do not provide the results but do retain them for an appropriate period of time.

  • Do I have to give all applicants the assessments?In order to be consistent, all applicants who reach a particular stage in the hiring process for a particular job opening must be treated the same. Consistency of the process is critically important (To hire the best and avoid legal discrimination).

  • Are these assessments considered “medical exams” and are they compliant with ADA? These assessments are created for business use and do not contain questions that are unlawful under the ADA.

    NOTE: As with any employment practice, it is very important that individual companies follow the guidelines set out by their employment lawyer. The FAQ’s provided here are not to be construed as legal advice.
