How Employee Risk Assessments Work

 

What is Personality?

Personality can be defined as our inherent traits, instinctive urges, and natural impulses. We call it our “hard wiring” or “default settings,” and they drive our behavior. By gaining advance insight into one’s default settings, an employer can predict how an employee is most likely to act on the job. The employer can leverage the employee’s strengths, minimize risks, and be aware of areas for improvement. Personality assessments are designed to uncover these default settings through a specialized set of questions. At TalentClick, we focus our employee assessments on predicting strengths AND risks, and by providing results that are relevant to the workplace.

How Employee Personality Assessments Work

The following is a step-by-step outline of the steps involved in uncovering a person’s default settings:

Step1

First, the Participant will complete an Employee Risk Assessment of roughly 10-15 minutes. The assessment will ask a variety of questions designed around one specific outcome relating to their workstyles. Question responses are based on a sliding scale from “Strongly Agree” to “Strongly Disagree”.

Step2

Once the Participant submits his completed assessment, the information will be sent instantly to the TalentClick “Black Box” to process the information provided with our proprietary algorithms.

Step3

Results will be generated in the following two reports:

  1. A Self-Coaching Report for Participants
  2. An Employer Report for Hiring, Training, & Coaching
Step4

Both the Employer and the Participant will use the awareness gained from the report to help interrupt the Participant’s default impulses that cause negative behaviors while leveraging their positive defaults to improve effectiveness in the workplace. When you are using Personality Risk Assessments for talent selection, Employers can use the reports to differentiate between candidates and access highly effective interview questions to better assess job fit.
