Profiles International Clients Deepen Expertise in the Use of Modern Employee Assessments
Certification training for using assessments is a key component of working with Profiles International solutions. This week, Profiles International headquarters hosted a two-day training workshop for clients from all around the US.
At these sessions, clients received in-depth training that outlines all elements of the science behind assessments. Attendees learned how to use the products for maximum impact in their own organizations for activities such as benchmarking their employees.
In developing and selling assessments, there are strict rules and guidelines that must be followed. These are issued by government and professional associations, such as, The Association of Test Publishers and International Test Commission. These guidelines were established to ensure that all products are credible, reliable, and validated. Profiles International sees their job as not only creating and developing these assessments, but to certify all users and provide on-going support. Although certification is not required to use our assessments, our certification programs have been extremely valuable for our clients.
“Helping our clients improve their talent management decisions through the use of assessments is one of the primary areas of our business,” said Bud Haney, president and co-founder of Profiles International. “We emphasize certification for those who use and administer our assessments because using them incorrectly can have negative results. But if you know what you’re doing, the impact can be tremendous.”
This week’s program covered 4 assessments:
As an assessment user, certification helps you:
- Solidify your knowledge
- Understand the science
- Ensure proper application
- Maximize your ROI
- Earn HCRI credits
- Gain a new credential
“A well informed user with a valid and reliable product will have a significantly better result than someone who is casual about it”, said Dr. Scott Hamilton, PhD, Chief Research Officer of Profiles International.
There were numerous breakout sessions taking place throughout the two days hosted by client services specialists, enterprise solutions representatives and the research and development team. Profiles International employees are passionate about sharing what their solutions can do for organizations and are actively researching new products and tools to assist organizations in effectively hiring, training and developing the right person for the right job.
"I knew the Profiles assessments worked. Now I know why I can trust the results. I understand the origins, how they are validated and the behavioral science and research behind them. I also understand how the assessment reports are written so that managers, without any special training, can read them to get the in-depth information they need to manage people more effectively." - Profiles International Client
