R.I.P. Assessments

Are you using zombie assessments?

Leaders at Google Cloud, ADP and Oracle are abandoning old assessments because…

  • They are based on 40 year old data and offer “cookie cutter” models based on outdated principles, which means they don’t actually lead to success in YOUR company or today’s environment and may be adding bias
  • They don’t help leaders understand success for the role in your company based on objective metrics
  • They drive intensive consulting and training costs – but not results.
  • The insights they bring on the person leave with the employee or the manager – there is no institutional knowledge left behind
  • They do not show “to what degree” you need a particular trait to be successful in a given role (eg. it’s not just about being outgoing; if you talk so much that you can’t listen to the customer in an AE role, you will not succeed in it)
  • They don’t move the needle on diversity because they perpetuate biases
  • They rely on judgement or require training and interpretation for each manager
  • They don’t automatically evolve and scale

Assessment + Performance Data = Success

Everyone wants the best hires. But do you know what that means for your company?

  • Companies still only have job descriptions, resumes, and word-based ways of trying to understand their employees at work. This makes the old adage true: “People get hired for skill and fired for behavior”. Why can’t you understand behavior?
  • Managers struggle to define what “success looks like”. This gets compounded by having many managers across an organization, and quality control becomes both critical and difficult.
  • Employees themselves may not understand their own behavioral profile, what their strengths are, and what are areas of development.
  • This is why getting the right person in the right role is hard

This is why a Fit-To-Role platform is a critical business advantage. It gives the organization a 360 view of the person and data to back up what success really entails in a role. 

People Insights is Your Competitive Advantage

Partner with the business to shed light on why someone is successful in a given role.

Leaders spend countless hours managing performance; trying to understand what’s driving performance, what different employees need in changing environments, what training works, and performance reporting tasks. Help them understand “Why is someone successful?” and take action based on these key insights for your company.

People intelligence helps understand what’s working, specifically coaching to performance, and hiring to performance.
