Work Place Development
SERVICES AND PROCESSText:
Behavioural and personality assessments or tests measure personal characteristics that are widely accepted as being predictive of a candidates expected job performance. With over 70 years of research, these tests have an extensive track record of helping employers match job candidates to compatible positions and training programs.
By using our job personality tests to select individuals whose traits are aligned with the demands of the position, you can improve employee productivity, satisfaction and engagement while reducing customer service complaints, recruitment costs and employee turnover.
What do employers seek in the personality test?
Employers's prime objectives are to establish whether you can do the job, will do the job to company standards and satisfaction, and will fit in with the company and its values.Your personality and behavioural style have a significant role to play in providing the answers to all three questions.Personality tests assist employers to evaluate how you are likely to handle relevant work-related activities, such as:
- managing stakeholders
- working in teams, complying with rules and regulations
- solving problems in a practical manner
- leading others
- coping with stress and pressure, and more.
Employers are likely to seek in candidates those personality traits which match the job requirements. For example:
- Candidates for HR professional roles are likely to be required to demonstrate superb stakeholdersÃ management skills, effective communication skills, a structured and planned approach to tasks, etc.
- Candidates for engineering roles are likely to be required to demonstrate a prudent and calculated approach to work, work-safety attitude, and ability to cope with pressure in the workplace.
- Candidates for sales roles are likely to be required to exhibit a competitive nature, high motivation to achieve results, and the ability to initiate and close sales.
- The above examples show that there are no right or wrong answers in the personality test. There is also no positive or negative personality. Your personality is measured based on its suitability to the job requirements.
You have successfully recruited your ideal candidate. They have been interviewed and hired; the first piece of the puzzle has been successfully placed. At this time there are few more puzzle pieces needed to complete and fully onboard a productive new addition to your workforce. The pre-boarding training must begin. This includes administrative aspects such as company policy, work place layout, scheduling, product and service orientation, and this training could take a few days to a week.
There is always the scenario where your newly hired addition needs more training perhaps they are in need of brush up courses. These courses include basic to intermediate typing skills, excel skills, word, or power point. We offer these skill building courses to assist in the pre-training to on boarding of the new addition.
When a new hire is not successfully pre-trained they may feel like they donÃt fit in their new position and may decide to leave, therefore causing you the employer to begin the process over. This unsuccessful hire costs valuable time and money and loss of revenue with a vacant position.
This process provides a guarantee that the new hire will fit in the new environment, and will thrive and grow to fully productive member of the team. This step by step overview will explain the process further.
Once you retained our services for recruitment of workers, we collect detailed Job related Information, which includes job duties, desired qualifications, job site information, number of current employees , schedules, company policies and procedures etc. Anything and everything which can affect the performance of a new worker will be gathered from you. Based on this information we will prepare the training packages for your approval.
When the training packages are prepared we assess the needs of the client and tailor the training accordingly. As an added bonus to the recruitment process the candidates will undergo personality testing. These tests will provide a an added insight to the behaviour and strengths the candidates may demonstrate in work place scenarios. This will also give added insight to the possible training needed.
We will tailor the training packages with the information collected from both you the employer and the candidates profile i.e. resume details, work experience, education, and interview details. We then prepare the package and material accordingly for your approval.
Once the collection of the information is completed and we have surveyed the resources needed a quote will be provided for the courses and tutorials. Depending on the situation the cost of the training will be billed to you the employer, candidate/potential new hire.
Once the course material is ready it will be submitted for your review and approval.
The approved material will then be converted into an online course and video tutorials. The course will be monitored, and administered by one of our instructors, who will assist the students in the process and will measure their performance.
Once the course is completed the student will be tested. This will give an accurate measure of their knowledge and performance. These results will be provided to you along with the on boarding package.
Once the student has been tested and cleared the course to the needs of the employer they will receive a certificate of completion. If the desired applicant does not pass or meet the expectations they may retake the course. At that time they will be retested and cleared.
Upon successful course completion the candidate will move on from the potential hire to a successfully pre trained new employee.
Professional Certification is rewarding to both you (as an Employer) and your Employee. Especially in certain trades, having Red-Seal certified employees not only increases your quality of service, but also increases the confidence your clients have in you. Anyone looking to get a job well done would prefer a company who provides the services through certified professionals.
Employers normally feel that getting their existing staff certified or hiring someone locally or from overseas who can be certified upon arrival, would be an expensive or a tedious step. Our company provides a very comprehensive and economical solution for such employers; a step-by-step process is explained below, which will give you a fair idea about each stage. If you are planning to upgrade skills and certification of your existing workers or you are in the process of hiring new workers and would like to have them Job-Ready with all the required certifications, you can contact us for a quote. This expense is an investment you make into your company to gain confidence of your clients, and its financially rewarding, because clients pay more for work done by certified professionals than an uncertified worker.
