Selection Assessments

Tallann Resources has partnered with the assessment firm PeopleBest to develop customized selection assessments specifically for the staffing industry. The assessment evaluates individuals on 29 behavioral traits such as self-responsibility, detail orientation, sociability, and crisis response. These traits are then compared to the particular competencies relevant to the position, such as Team Building for a branch manager, or Sales Effectiveness for a sales rep.

Once the assessment is complete, one of our certified assessment professionals will analyze the results and provide feedback to the client, as well as the detailed assessment report.

A team assessment is also available that compares the client’s employees and develops a behavioral profile for future hires, as well as coaching and training recommendations.

Value to Clients: As part of a standardized hiring process, our assessment service provides valuable insight into a candidate’s fit for a particular position. Our assessments are unique to the staffing industry because they have been customized for staffing positions by industry experts. When included as part of the selection process, our assessments have proven to result in better hires and greater retention of internal staff.
