All rights reserved.
  • Introducing Profiles International What We Do – Benefits to your organization We help you use this information to improve employee and manager performance, as well as overall workforce productivity Select people best suited to succeed in a particular job in your organization • We help you repeat success by defining the characteristics of successful people in a role and using this as a model to evaluate and select prospective candidates. • According to the Harvard Business Review, this “job matching” approach more accurately predicts job success than any of the commonly accepted factors such as education, experience or job training. Improve communication and relationships between employees and their managers • Imagine if every employee came with an operator’s manual that would help the organization and manager get the most from that employee. Our assessments give you specialized reports for interviewing, selecting, coaching, and succession planning. This information is invaluable for managers to effectively communicate with and motivate the employee to peak performance. Improve team performance and work place harmony • Profiles team and workforce analysis tools help leaders get the most from every team member and effectively guide the way to achievement of shared goals by understanding team balance, strengths and weaknesses. Build consistent culture and values throughout your organization • Understanding employees’ attitudes and beliefs towards their employers, managers and job functions is a critical first step toward building a high-performance workforce. Our assessments can examine a company’s culture and provide insight into employee, managerial and team alignment and how these fit with the company’s strategic goals and objectives. This process helps to identify gaps in organizational alignment. Introducing Profiles International | 8 ©2009 Profiles International, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • Introducing Profiles International What We Do – Creating real value for clients Why is it important?

  • Introducing Profiles International How We Do It – Assessment Descriptions Risk Factors Step One Survey II® (SOS) The SOS is a brief pre-hire assessment that measures an individual’s basic work-related values. It is used primarily as a screening tool early in the candidate selection process. This assessment provides valid insight into an applicant’s work ethic, honesty, integrity, propensity for substance abuse and attitudes toward theft — including property, data and time. ProfileXT® (PXT) The PXT assessment measures how well an individual fits specific jobs in your organization. The “job matching” feature of the PXT is unique, and enables you to evaluate an individual relative to the qualities required to perform successfully in a specific job. It is used primarily for employee selection, on-boarding, managing, and strategic workforce planning. This assessment reveals deep, objective insight into an individual's thinking and reasoning style, relevant behavioral traits, occupational interests, and match to specific jobs in your organization. It helps your managers interview and select people who have the highest probability of being successful in a role, and provides practical recommendations for coaching them to maximum performance. It also gives your organization consistent language and metrics to support strategic workforce and succession planning, talent management, and re-organization efforts.

  • Introducing Profiles International How We Do It – Assessment Descriptions Profiles Performance Indicator™ (PPI) The Profiles Performance Indicator is a DISC-type assessment that reveals aspects of an individual's personality that could impact their fit with their manager, coworkers and team, and their job performance. It is used primarily for motivating and coaching employees, and resolving conflict and performance issues post hire. The PPI specifically measures an individual's motivational intensity and behaviors related to productivity, quality orientation, initiative, team work, problem solving, as well as response to conflict, stress and change. The output from this assessment serves as an "operator's manual" for an employee, and helps managers better motivate, coach, and communicate with the employee. It also helps to predict and minimize conflict among co-workers and provides crucial information to improve team selection and performance. CheckPoint 360°™ The CheckPoint Management System is a 360-degree assessment. It is used primarily to evaluate the effectiveness of your managers. This assessment combines feedback from direct reports, peers, supervisors, and even customers, with a personalized program for developing specific leadership skills based on that feedback. This process highlights a manager’s job performance in 8 skill clusters: leadership, communication, personal development, development of others, production task management, relationships, and adaptability. The CheckPoint 360 helps managers identify and prioritize their own development opportunities. And, it helps the organization to better focus management training and development investments, proactively uncover misaligned priorities between senior executives and front-line managers, and surface management issues that could lead to low employee productivity, morale, satisfaction, and turnover.

  • Introducing Profiles International How We Do It – Assessment Descriptions Profiles Team Analysis (PTA) The Profiles Team Analysis (PTA) is used to help managers form new teams, reduce team conflict, improve team communication, and improve ability to anticipate problems and better team leadership. It helps evaluate overall team balance, strengths and weaknesses, and team members’ personality characteristics along 12 key factors: control, composure, sociability, analytical, patience, results orientation, precision, emotions, ambition, team player, positive expectancy, and quality orientation. Profiles WorkForce Compatibility (PWC) Profiles WorkForce Compatibility (PWC) measures critical aspects of compatibility between a manager (executive, director, supervisor, team leader) and their employees. It is used to increase productivity, identify and close compatibility gaps between manager and employee, improve communications between manager and employee, increase employee engagement, satisfaction, and productivity, and reduce employee turnover.

  • Introducing Profiles International How We Do It – Assessment Descriptions Profiles Sales Assessment™ (PSA) The Profiles Sales Assessment (PSA) measures how well a person fits specific sales jobs in your organization. It is used primarily for selecting, on-boarding and managing sales people and account managers. The “job matching” feature of the PXT is unique, and can be customized by company, sales position, department, manager, geography, or any combination of these factors. This enables you to evaluate an individual relative to the qualities required to perform successfully in a specific sales job in your organization. The PSA also indentifies people who have the five qualities that make salespeople successful: Competitiveness, Self-reliance, Persistence, Energy, and Sales Drive. It also predicts on-the-job performance in seven critical sales behaviors: Prospecting, Closing Sales, Call Reluctance, Self- starting, Teamwork, Building and Maintaining Relationships, and Compensation Preference. Customer Service Profile™ (CSP) The Customer Service Profile (CSP) measures how well a person fits specific customer service jobs in your organization. It is used primarily for selecting, on-boarding, and managing customer service employees. The CSP also looks at what your current and future employees believe is a high-level of customer service, while at the same time showing where they align (or not) with the company’s perspective. We have a general industry version of this assessment as well as vertical specialties in hospitality, health care, financial services, and retail.
