Personality Profile Assessment Leads to Better, More Effective Hiring Decisions
For many businesses, the processes of recruiting, interviewing, and hiring new staff can be quite overwhelming. Internal staff and financial resources must allocated or dedicated to these important activities, often at the expense of other business responsibilities or commitments, yet without guarantee that the searches will identify the right/ideal candidates for the roles.
Quite often, the urgency to fill open positions can supersede the goal of finding the best candidates, thereby resulting in rash hiring decisions that must be remedied, with the above processes eventually being repeated much sooner than expected. And inherent within such ill-advised hires are the direct costs of those do-overs, so to speak, plus the indirect costs of lost productivity and lost business opportunities.
To help avert such scenarios, and thus make more effective hiring decisions, employers may find it beneficial to assess the personalities of high-potential candidates from a perspective of their suitability, or fit, with corporate culture and the work environment; in other words, do they have the right temperament or character, not just the right skills, to be successful from the start and into the future as well?

Compare Candidate Personality Against a Benchmark Profile
How well do employers really know the people they hire? The hiring process can be likened to walking through a minefield; employers are never 100% sure if they are making a right or wrong decision until, at least in the case of the latter, it is too late.
To that end, the Personality Assessment Profile results for any candidate can be compared against a benchmark profile for known employees in corresponding positions or departments within the organization. This benchmark or standard is created through the completion of Personality Assessment Profiles by those known employees, and provides an instantaneous comparator for evaluating the external applicants.
