Behaviors DISC & Driving Forces Assessment
What is DISC?
DISC is the universal language of observable human behavior, or “how we act.” DISC does not measure education, experience, values or intelligence. It simply measures an individual’s behaviors, or how they communicate.
The Application of DISC
With the knowledge of DISC, you can learn to understand and appreciate your behavior style, and then adapt your style in communication with others. In fact, you can change the golden rule. Rather than treating others as you would want to be treated, you can treat others the way they want.
TriMetrix DNA Assessment
TriMetrix DNA combines behaviors, motivators and competencies together in a validated, bias-free and fully integrated assessment that meets EEOC and OFCCP requirements. TriMetrix DNA is available in management/staff, executive and sales versions.
What Does TriMetrix DNA Measure?
Behavior. Research suggests that the most effective people are those who understand themselves, both their strengths and weaknesses, so they can develop strategies to meet the demands of their environment. This report measures the four dimensions of normal behavior: dominance, influence, steadiness and compliance. TriMetrix DNA tells you how this individual will perform.
Driving Forces. Knowledge of an individual’s driving forces help tell us why a person behaves a certain way. 12 Driving Forces™ measures the primary driving forces cluster – the top four of an individual’s driving forces – to tell a story of how a person derives meaning from life and work.
Competencies. An individual’s hierarchy of competencies is key to their success, and knowing what they are is essential to reaching their goals. This report is designed to assist managing and developing a career. For many jobs, personal skills are as important as technical skills in producing superior performance. TriMetrix DNA describes what this individual “has done” in 23 research-based capacities related to the business environment.
Past Performance Is the Best Indicator of a Candidate’s Future Success!
Checking references before making an offer can actually save time, money, effort, and a lot of embarrassment. You will be pleasantly surprised how candid past employers may be in providing useful information. It is important to keep in mind that since all applicants must be treated fairly, you will need to conduct reference checks on all applicants you are considering for the position.
Employment experts estimate that 30 percent of all resumes contain false or exaggerated information. Most often, dates are expanded to cover gaps in employment, which may be covering up something more serious than just unemployment. Education is another area that candidates may exaggerate or falsify. If your position requires a specific educational background, you should also verify the applicant’s education before you make an offer.
Our 360-degree reference checking process includes speaking with prior SUPERVISORS, prior PEERS (i.e., co-workers), and prior SUBORDINATES to obtain a complete picture of your potential new employee. It is surprising how much you can truly learn about an individual by conducting a proper reference check.
Is your potential employee being truthful about their employment history?
Competition for jobs can be fierce and the desire to get ahead is a powerful motivator. Too often, employers are in a hurry to fill a vacancy. They take a resume at face value only to find out their new hire doesn’t actually have the experience or the skills they claimed. Making a bad hire is a very expensive mistake that few companies can afford to make.
Previous employment verification can sometimes uncover small fibs like an applicant who nudges their previous salary up in hopes of getting a better offer. But it can also uncover outright lies by con-artists who claim work experience they never had.
According to a CareerBuilder survey, 58% of hiring managers say they have caught lies on applicant’s resumes. High on the list of the most common embellishments are fudging dates of employment and lying about a job title.
Past employment verifications can also help uncover or explain gaps on a resume, or reveal an applicant trying to conceal downtime by stretching starting or end dates.
“Never judge a book by its cover.”
That’s a common saying that’s been around for many generations. In terms of recruitment, it means something very unique. When it comes to selecting the best candidates to work for your business, going deeper than just face value should be a routine practice.
