Profile XT™ – The “Total Person” Employee Assessment
The Profile XT™ is a “Total Person” assessment. It measures the job-related qualities that make a person productive – Thinking and Reasoning Style, Behavioral Traits, and Occupational Interests. They are convenient and easy to use on the Internet – no administrator or proctoring is required. The Profile XT™ is used for placement, promotion, self-improvement, coaching, succession planning, and job description development.
Our clients tell us The Profile XT™ is three to five times more effective than any other assessment they have used. It is a versatile management tool that develops Job Match Patterns (see below) that can be customized by company, department, manager, position, geography, or any combination of these factors.
Job Match Patterns are effective because they compare the qualities of your job candidates to the attributes of your most productive employees. The patterns tell you whether candidates are like or different from your top performers. A study published in the Harvard Business Review concluded that Job Match more accurately predicts job success than any of the commonly accepted factors, such as education, experience, or job training. Matching people so they fit the work they do builds productivity and job-satisfaction and diminishes negative factors such as stress, tension, conflict, miscommunication, and costly employee turnover.
The Profile XT provides several valuable reports:
- Individual Report
- Placement Report
- Succession Planning Report
- Candidate Matching Report
- Coaching Report
- Job Analysis Report
- Graph Report
- Profile Sales Assessment
Individual Report – An Individual Report is used for personal growth and development. It describes a person’s attributes and gives insights to improve job performance and productivity.
Placement Report – A Placement Report is used to put the right person in the right job. It gives employers assessments of job candidates’ thinking style, behavioral traits, and occupational interests, giving the candidate’s percentage match to the company’s top performers. The report also suggests questions interviewers can ask to help determine a candidate’s suitability for the position being filled.
Succession Planning Report – The Succession Planning Report lets you look into the future. It compares a person to all of the jobs in your company and indicates those where they have a good job match. With this information, you can help employees prepare for greater responsibilities by making sure they acquire the skills and experiences they will need in order to perform competently the jobs they will fill in coming years.
Candidate Matching Report – The Candidate Matching Report is helpful for narrowing your search as you seek to fill a position. It compares the attributes of several candidates to your Job Match Pattern and, at a glance, shows you which of them have the highest Job Match Percentage. Then, by closer examination of the top candidates’ Placement Reports, you can easily determine which of them you want to interview and graduate to the next steps in your hiring process.
Coaching Report – Coaching reports are a manager’s guide to helping the people they manage develop better work habits. The report has suggestions for improving employee performance so it approaches the productivity of the company’s top performers. Using the reports to direct the development of employees enables managers to develop their leadership abilities.
Job Analysis Report – The Job Analysis Report describes in great detail, the type of person who has the right qualities and characteristics to fit a particular job. This report complements a standard job description that details the skills and duties the job requires. Used together, they contain a Total person approach to explaining the requirements of a particular position.
Summary Report – They give you a “snapshot” of essential information about employees and job candidates.
Graph Report – A visual representation of Job Match data.
Profile Sales Assessment – The Profile Sales Assessment is used for placement, promotion, and competency assessment for sales people.
