Choose the level of modeling that optimizes your return on talent

The Job Modeling solution maximizes the relevance, speed, and predictive power of assessment solutions. Employers have several assessment types to choose from and each assessment’s scoring method is weighted based on a company’s culture, objectives, and required job competencies.

The Job Modeling solution starts by defining critical position Constructs (focus broadly on how people create value) and Competencies (focus on specific choices and actions that achieve strategic objectives). The solution uses online surveys completed by hiring managers and stakeholders by assigning points to Constructs and Competencies important for success on the job and evaluate factors that impact how well new hires fit the organizational culture and work environment.
