    • Pre-hire Assessments (Online) Gatto Associates, LLC, provides customized pre-hire assessments to guide our clients in the talent acquisition and talent management process. Our assessments serve as valuable tools when managers must decide whether a particular candidate has the aptitude, ability, personality and temperament to ensure success in a job and a good cultural fit within their organizations. A better well-rounded picture of a candidate emerges when managers couple pre-hire assessment with the interview process. Equipped with better information, managers are thus in a position to make better decisions. Gatto Associates Pre-hire Assessments are customized to meet a number of specific job requirements set forth by our clients. We select the assessments that measure attributes directly related to a specific job performance. Pre-hire assessments take the guesswork out of hiring!
    • Background Information for Pre-hire Assessment Categories of Assessment: Tests - Self-reporting tests have right or wrong answers to assess knowledge or performance (for example, a math problem is either right or wrong). Inventories - Identify preferences, mannerisms or style (for example, there is no one right Leadership Style) Types of Assessments Aptitude - knowledge, ability to apply skills (math, language, logic, and reasoning) Cognitive Ability - analyze, solve problems and draw conclusions: potential to learn and think Personality - characteristics, job fit, emotional intelligence Integrity - honesty, attitude toward theft, drugs, etc. Psycho-motor - coordination and manual dexterity Physical - capabilities (lifting) In all of these types of assessments, a series of questions are asked to assess the person’s: • knowledge • skills • abilities • other characteristics
    • Why Use Pre-hire Assessments? Pre-hire assessment has becomes more prevalent in recent years for a number of reasons: • When using assessments, the hiring decision becomes more objective and quantifiable. • The hiring decision is defensible as a valid and reliable predictor of success in the job position. • The cost of bad hiring decisions ranges from 20% to 200% of a given position’s salary. (HR Management, www.cvrdallas.com, March 12, 2010) • Regular interviews alone have a predictive accuracy as low as 5% (Prehire assessments, K. Nash, Ezine Articles.com) Supportive Data Using a variety of assessments increases the probability of selecting the right employee: • Assessing behavioral traits alone - 38% • Assessing behavioral traits AND thinking abilities - 54% • Assessing behavioral traits AND thinking abilities AND occupational interests – 66% Outcomes of Using Pre-hire Assessments • Put the right person in the right job - placement of greater numbers of superior performers • Reduce employee turnover and increase productivity • Provide employees with needed training based on their characteristic profile results • Give managers insight into employee characteristics and styles • Promote people into positions where they will succeed
    • Categories of On-Line Assessments The Executive Level Customized Assessment is a comprehensive format focusing on general acumen, intelligence, work-related skills and abilities. The participant completes the assessments online, which takes approximately three to four hours. Gatto Associates then scores the assessments, writes a report, and presents the findings via a conference call. The Manager Level Assessment is a specific format indicating general acumen, specialized skills, and abilities. The participant completes the assessments online, which takes approximately two- and-a-half to three hours. Gatto Associates then scores the assessments, writes a report, and presents the findings via a conference call. We can customize the assessment process to any format you would like, based on specific job responsibilities. We will submit to you a 15-20 page report indicating individual results, job traits, a “quick-hit” summary, best ways to work with this person, and follow-up interview questions for you to utilize.
