  63. 63. Introducing Profiles International | 13<br />How We Do It – Assessment Descriptions<br />Introducing Profiles International<br />Step One Survey II® (SOS)<br />The SOS is a brief pre-hire assessment that measures an individual’s basic work-related values. It is<br />used primarily as a screening tool early in the candidate selection process. <br />This assessment provides valid insight into an applicant’s work ethic, honesty, integrity, propensity<br />for substance abuse and attitudes toward theft — including property, data and time. <br />ProfileXT® (PXT)<br />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. <br />This assessment reveals deep, objective insight into an individual&apos;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.<br />Risk Factors<br />
  64. 64. Introducing Profiles International | 14<br />How We Do It – Assessment Descriptions<br />Introducing Profiles International<br />Profiles Performance Indicator™ (PPI)<br />The Profiles Performance Indicator is a DISC-type assessment that reveals aspects of an individual&apos;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. <br /> <br />The PPI specifically measures an individual&apos;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 &quot;operator&apos;s manual&quot; 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.<br />CheckPoint 360°™<br />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. <br />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.<br />

Introducing Profiles International | 16<br />How We Do It – Assessment Descriptions<br />Introducing Profiles International<br />ProfilesSales Assessment™ (PSA)<br />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.<br />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. <br />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.<br />Customer Service Profile™ (CSP)<br />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. <br />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. <br />
