Why Employee Assessments?

Essentially, assessments help organizations make better hiring decisions, quickly and inexpensively. From pre-screening, hiring and promoting, to coaching and succession planning, assessments are cost-effective, time saving tools that will help your company ensure employees are truly suited to their jobs.

Did you know that, on average, two out three employees would rather work somewhere else? Turnover costs thousands of dollars for every departing employee, yet 80% of turnover is avoidable. Unfortunately, many employers have accepted high turnover as a business reality, and continue to perpetuate ineffective hiring methods. Assessments allow you to make hiring decisions based more on information, and less on gut.

Only about 10% of a person’s behavior can be described by what others can observe through day-to-day interactions. Our assessments are based on sound scientific and psychological principles and give organizations in-depth, objective, comprehensive and reliable information about their people. This includes:

 How they think
 Their natural tendencies, behaviors and preferences
 How they interact with peers and managers
 Attitudes toward important performance-related issues

This information enables the organization to select the best people for a job, improve communication between employees and their managers, improve team performance and organizational climate in order to build consistent culture and values.

Performance Solutions Source is qualified to offer a portfolio of employee assessments targeted to improve your selection process or guide employee development. Our assessments are often paired with supportive training or coaching to ensure maximum results.

Personnel Assessment Form (PAF)The PAF is a convenient, objective measure of general mental ability and intelligence. This assessment is a strong predictor of job performance. Thousands of studies provide evidence that tests of general mental ability predict successful job performance across a wide variety of jobs and situations. In fact, studies indicate that there is no predictor of job performance that is comparable in validity to measures of general mental ability.

The verbal dimension of the PAF was found to predict higher ratings on written and verbal communications, in addition to higher ratings on managing and training employees.
