Select Multi-Position Associate Pre-Employment System
Validated Associate Sales and Service Screening Tool - Associate-Level Customer Service, Healthcare, Administrative, Retail, Service, and Sales Management Employees
The Select Associate Screening System is a family of related assessments designed to measure important, work-related, personality and integrity characteristics in applicants for entry-level jobs.
Select identifies those persons who will be positive service providers with stable work-related personality characteristics and productive work behaviors.
Only dimensions that were proven statistically to make a difference between top performers and sub-par performers are applied for each benchmarked position.
Successful service agents enjoy the service role, exceed customer expectations, foster new and repeat business, work cooperatively with others, show composure under stress, and demonstrate integrity and a work ethic. Increase your profits and customer satisfaction!
America's businesses, shops, malls and healthcare facilities are staffed with ill chosen retail sales representatives, customer service associates and caregivers. These ill chosen employees often do not show up for work when they are supposed to, and worse, what kind of effort will they put forth and how will they treat your clients, customer and patients?
Clients, customers and patients have many choices in today's marketplace. It is no longer enough to have great products, put the inventory on the shelf or have the latest in technology.
Today's marketplace is competitive and top performing employees make the difference between success and mediocrity. A recent study revealed receptionists, administrative assistants, retail sales associates, airline reservation agents, convenience store associates sold more products and services - in fact a total on average of 20% more - than their peers with poor client, customer or patient skills!
