Assessment Tools

Why test?

Ever wish you had a crystal ball to help you determine whether a candidate is right for you? Candidates are smart and prepared. They rehearse and have the answers. You need testing tools to probe for hidden strengths and weaknesses.

The DISC and EQ assessments are frequently combined into an integrated Behavioral Assessment, a powerful tool. When combined with the Personal Motivation & Engagement assessment, an additional important dimension is added. Take a complimentary test and recognize the remarkable accuracy and insights of the reports.

DISC Analysis
  • Take the guesswork out of interviewing with PSG’s DISC. Testing time is minimal, turnaround is rapid and it’s extremely cost effective.
  • Use it for coaching to gain insights.
  • Use it for team-building to develop mutual respect for the different behavioral styles of team members.

The DISC analysis measures four key facets of a candidate’s behavior:

Dominance Response to challenges and problems.
Influence Influence over others.
Steadiness Response to the pace of the environment.
Compliance Compliance with rules and procedures.

The report also provides the ideal characteristics for the job plus insights into the individual’s value to the organization, tips for better communication, the ideal environment, keys to motivating and areas for improvement.

Emotional Intelligence (EI)

EQ (emotional quota) is the measure of your emotional intelligence – your ability to manage your emotions so that you can manage relationships more effectively. The key components to be measured are as follows:

Intra-personal: Self-awareness Self-regulation Motivation
Inter-personal: Empathy Social Skills

High levels of EI are characteristic of great leaders, with self-awareness regarded as the cornerstone.

Personal Motivation & Engagement

The Personal Motivators & Engagement report measures the relative prominence of six basic motivators:

Theoretical Utilitarian Aesthetic
Social Individualistic Traditional

Motivators help to initiate one’s behavior and are not always readily observed. This report helps illuminate these motivating factors and build on the strengths that each person brings to the work environment. It becomes particularly powerful used in conjunction with the individual’s DISC profile.

Case Study Testing
  • Case studies, designed for specific position and industry requirements enable candidates to demonstrate communication, analytical, problem-solving, management, interpersonal and other competencies.
  • The cases are scored in relation to the ideal candidate profile.

We conduct the testing, prepare the report and summarize results. We also assist, as required, in developing the case studies.
