Quotes of the Day:

H.R. Consulting, Management (3)

President

"Thank you for your excellent article on personnel testing.

As you know, we have been using your products for over a year with excellent results. I would recommend all of your assessment instruments to anyone whose goal it is to improve their hiring and management procedures. In my practice I find that clients are almost desperate to have objective information to base hiring decisions upon. Your test - The Prevue - really meets that need.

I am equally impressed with the Employer Compliance Manual which I use on a daily basis. Thanks for all your help!"

"My enthusiasm derives from lessons learned during the past six years, as our academic health center engaged in a serious culture change, simplified processes for our customers and reduced administrative costs associated with our services. Our journey would have been far less tumultuous had I known about your tools for making better hiring, promotion, management and training decisions. I tried many others that were highly rated, but that did not provide the comprehensive information we required in a customized, simple, and affordable manner.

What time did not permit me to share with your audience is the pain we experience when we hire or promote senior people with poor job fit. The costs of such mistakes have been staggering, to an embarrassing degree. The additional costs that result from poor morale are difficult to calculate, though we are certain they are significant. The severance package for just one senior executive this year, more than covered the costs of the investments that we are making in the your assessments. Clearly, we needed to invest in learning more about job candidates when it counts the most--before they are hired or promoted."

  41. Retail (4) "...Prevue Assessment...has helped us make better hiring decisions as a result of having quality information."
  42. Software Development (3) "We use the assessment as part of our already in-depth interview process to try and give our "hunches" some grounding and measure the logic/analytical skills"
  43. Staffing Services (2) "The Prevue has greatly enhanced or ability to hire quality applicants that are a good match for our team. The Prevue has reduced the risk of hiring good looking resumes and interviewers that might not fit well into our organization. "
  44. Telephone Services (1) "We have had extremely positive feedback from participants about the complete and detailed input they receive in their Individual 360° Feedback Report. The data is colorfully presented in multiple formats so that participants can view their management and team competencies first with a wide-angle lens and then progressively narrow the focus all the way down to the survey item level."
  45. Television and Radio (2) "I recommend your testing system for anyone who has ever hired what seemed like the best candidate only to find out months later they were not working out. I only wish I had learned about Prevue Assessment earlier in my management career."
  46. Testing, Analytical (1) " The information from these assessments proved to be very beneficial for us in developing the Company's profile of the 'total person'. Management felt comfortable using this information since it was based on valid data."
  47. Training (2) "Job fit or job match are critical factors for successful recruiting and employee retention. We have calculated the dollar cost of turning over an associate after six months to be about $30,000. It is impossible to estimate the emotional cost to our team when we lose someone we have grown to like as a person. At $145.00 per "Prevue" I calculate we could have "Previewed" almost everyone I have ever interviewed in my career and, as a result could have saved $450,000.00 over the past 10 years. "
  48. Wholesale (1) "The Prevue allows us to accurately pinpoint the candidate's strengths and weaknesses. In addition, we use the Prevue for existing employees to coach them in maximizing their strengths while overcoming their weaknesses."
