The Profile Evaluation System represents a successful effort to produce an instrument useful to business, industry, government, and educational services that characterize individuals on a number of psychological traits that are important for job performance. The Profile is an effective instrument that allows companies and individuals to maximize the fit between employment demands and abilities, aptitudes and personality constellations of employees or potential employees. When this fit is optimized there will be greater comfort and productivity on the part of employees. Employee inefficiency and turnover will be minimized and organizational productivity will be maximized. While all managers acknowledge the importance of the hiring function must also recognize the importance of developing management and leadership skills in their present employees. Information about individuals and their tendencies is also extraordinarily valuable in these contexts as well. The profile was developed with the goal of helping companies make sound employment, retention, assignment, training, and promotion decisions.
The Profile Evaluation is the right business tool for evaluating people. It identifies strengths and areas for development. The evaluation is extremely useful in coaching and training. It helps increase employees’ effectiveness and determine training needs. It is also useful in making hiring and promotion decisions.
The Profile Evaluation System measures job-related information in eighteen separate classifications: six mental aptitudes, ten personality dimensions plus two validity scales.
This system looks for over 100 possible combinations or correlations. The relationships between the traits of the person’s personality and mental aptitudes help derive these combinations. Strengths in some dimension could compensate for challenges in other dimensions.
This system provides the capability to personalize and customize normative patterns, or benchmarks, for each position in your organization. Normative patterns identify and provide ideal ranges for mental aptitudes and personality dimensions to reflect the actual job.
When the Profile Evaluation is properly implemented and utilized in conjunction with another normal coaching, hiring and interviewing tools, a Profile report will strengthen the employer’s position to ensure that the employee and applicants are treated fairly without regard to race, colour, religion, gender, or national origin. By utilizing specific job patterns derived from the scores of successful employees in those positions, the Profile is assured of only measuring those traits deemed critical for successful job performance.
After testing well over a million people, there has never been an adverse finding against any employer for the use of the Profile Evaluation System as part of their hiring process. The Profile Evaluation used in conjunction with the reference check and interview helps to ascertain whether a person is suited for a particular position.
