Reduce Risk of Bad Hires with New Candidate Potential Report

Free Trial of Validated Job Candidate Selection Tool Until August 31. Summary: Personality tests for job candidates are an excellent defense against the risk of bad hires because they help assess the difficult question of "job fit." Performance Programs, Inc., a leading distributor of employee personality tests, announces that it can now help smaller businesses use the new Candidate Potential Report from Hogan Assessment Systems.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) June 28, 2007 -- Employee personality testing is rapidly becoming a best practice for companies interested in selecting high-caliber employees and managing talent. Personality tests are an excellent defense against the risk of bad hires because they help assess the difficult question of "job fit." It is often challenging for smaller businesses to implement employee personality testing, however, due to the need for formal job analysis and local validation studies.

Performance Programs, Inc., a leading distributor of the Hogan Personality Inventory, can now help those businesses use the new Candidate Potential Report Series (CPR). Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) has a successful 30-year track record in predicting employee performance and helping companies improve bottom-line business results by reducing turnover, absenteeism, shrinkage, and poor customer service.* The new Candidate Potential Report is designed for organizations hiring fewer than 80 people per year across different job titles. CPR helps employers by providing an immediate candidate rating of "high," "medium" or "low" job fit.*

Employers using Candidate Potential Reports do not need to conduct local validation studies. The reports are valid and legally defensible. Contact Performance Programs for details about minimum user qualifications and certification.

Employers who wish to try the new Candidate Potential Reports before August 31, 2007, can obtain three reports at no charge. If they continue using the reports after that date, there is a one-time fee of $400 to set up an account and $50 per report thereafter.

Performance Programs is a human resources consulting firm with expertise in psychometrics for the workplace. The company has assisted hundreds of employers of all types and sizes worldwide since 1987 with employee personality testing, 360 feedback, employee surveys, leadership assessments, work-life balance surveys, cross-cultural assessments, and more.
