Hiring Support

Are hiring decisions costing you thousands per employee in turnover costs? To outperform your competition, you need to be able to recruit, interview, and select the best employees. Creating a superior – and stable - workforce increases your company's profitability. See our list of assessment, training, and compensation planning services.

In today's recruiting market, it is important that your compensation package be competitive and within budget. PSM provides a number of prestigious benefit plan offerings that are available to client employees, many of which require no employer contributions or minimum enrollment constraints.

The wrong "fit" for your company can result in decreased morale, poor production, or costly turnover. Good employees are worth their weight in gold. Our assessments take the guesswork out of defining and replicating the common traits of great performers.

Good employees are worth their weight in gold. The ability to spot common traits in your great performers is invaluable. For most companies, however, defining these common traits and replicating great performers is a guessing game. The wrong "fit" for your company can result in decreased morale, poor production, or costly turnover. The solution? Utilize some of the assessment tools offered by PSM. With options ranging from basic honesty and integrity assessments, to sophisticated job match and total person tools, we can help you make better hiring and promotion decisions. This reduces turnover and improves your speed-to-market capabilities.

Here is a partial list of assessments we can provide:

  • THE PROFILE XT™ is a multi-purpose assessment that can be used for selection, training, promotion, managing, and succession planning. It can be administered over the web.
  • STEP ONE SURVEY II® is a pre-employment screening tool for assessing the attitudes of job candidates regarding integrity, reliability, drug use, and work ethic. This is the solution for employers who hire too many people who are dishonest, use drugs, are late or "no shows," or whose work effort is sub-standard.
  • PROFILES PERFORMANCE INDICATOR™ measures five key personality factors and their impact on seven critically important aspects of success in business. The report helps you understand how an individual is effectively understood, motivated, and managed. It is economical and quick to take, making it the ideal choice for your business.
  • CHECKPOINT 360°™ is a powerful professional development tool that positively impacts an individual's growth and career, and an organization's success. For managers, supervisors, and others in leadership positions, it can facilitate peak performance and improve workplace culture. Check Point quantifies a participant's competencies, verifies the results from a variety of perspectives, and identifies ways to enhance skills.
  • PROFILES TEAM ANALYSIS™ makes team building both challenging and rewarding. Effective teams achieve results far beyond what individuals could accomplish on their own. But, team building is far more than putting a group of people together and hoping for the best. This system reports the attributes of each team member, shows the team's strengths, and alerts the team leader to potential improvements.
  • PROFILES SALES INDICATOR™ is a tool for selecting, managing, and training salespeople. It measures five key qualities of successful salespeople and predicts performance in seven critical sales behaviors. Using the Profiles Sales Indicator to build and develop a sales organization can result in record-breaking productivity and retention of top performers.
  • PROFILES CAREER COACH™ is an assessment that can answer the question, "What is the right job for me?" Whether used by high school and college students, or more experienced people looking for a new career path, Profiles Career Coach measures a person's thinking style, occupational interests and behavioral traits, and matches their attributes with jobs and careers that utilize the individual's potential to the fullest. The result is job satisfaction and career success.
  • PROFILES CUSTOMER SERVICE SURVEY™ identifies people who have the right behavioral traits to give outstanding customer service. "Customers go where they are wanted, and stay where they are appreciated." Use the survey to hire people who will enhance your company's reputation and create customer satisfaction.
  • PROFILES CALL CENTER SURVEY™ measures suitability for call center duty - inbound or outbound. While almost everyone can use a telephone, not everyone can successfully work in a call center. Cut turnover and eliminate problems. Use it to help find employees who "fit" your call center.
