"Thank you for your excellent article on
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
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
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."

(2) "I recommend your testing system for anyone who has ever

Prevue Assessment earlier in my management career."
- 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."
- 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. "
- 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."
