Psychometric 101

Do your Psychometric Assessments have the flexibility to fit my needs?


Yes, and in many ways. First, we offer a full range of assessments ranging from basic skills tests to personality and behavioral inventories and 360 degree feedback systems. You can implement any or all of the career assessments to achieve your specific objectives. Your Profiles' Client Service Executive will help you do this. And you can add additional assessments at any time. Our assessments share a common language and delivery platform, and scale effortlessly across your organization. Once you have selected the assessments that meet your needs, your Client Service Executive will help you fine tune these assessments to reflect your organization's unique jobs, structure, and culture. For example, the job matching feature of the ProfileXT enables you to identify the key attributes of high performers in a specific job, and then create a custom benchmark to evaluate prospective candidates and coach others to improve performance. Our process is truly remarkable and unmatched in the industry.
