About the PeopleClues assessment profiles
In Avionté, there are two main profile assessments offered: Attitude Profile and Job Fit Profile, and additional profile reports are offered through the Other Profile tab.
Attitude Profile tab
This tab includes several reports that include:
- Attitudes: A report that displays the results of the assessment concerning the applicant's overall attitude. The bottom portion of the report provides an interpretive summary of the individual.
- Good Impression: A validity scale that measures the degree to which the person has responded frankly to the test items or is responding in such a way as to make a good impression.
- Hostility: (Aggression): Describes the degree to which the person is not able to suppress angry feelings but rather expresses anger physically or verbally to co-workers and thus poses a real risk in the workplace.
- Conscientiousness: (Dependability): Describes the degree to which the individual lacks persistence, work motivation, and organization, ranging from being lackadaisical and careless to being highly disciplined and dependable.
- Integrity: (Honesty): Involves the degree to which the person is likely to engage in pilferage, short–changing customers, falsifying expense accounts, lying to protect him or herself, exaggerating one's job qualifications and other acts of dishonesty.
Job Fit Profile tab
This tab lists and ranks how the applicant matches up, or fits with a particular job. The higher the value, the better fit the applicant may be with a listed job. By clicking on the View Report link at the far right, you can view a report on an explanation of the job fit based on the assessment data.
Other Profile tab
This tab includes additional reports:
- Career Trait Profile: This report is intended for the test taker. It provides information to help the individual understand themselves better in terms of various career traits. It explains how to present themselves within job applications, resumes, and during interviews. It also highlights certain jobs and training that may be beneficial for them based on their test results.
- Training and Coaching New Employees: This report is designed to help a supervisor or manager better understand the personality characteristics and learning style of a new employee. By understanding these characteristics and how they can affect basic work behaviors, the supervisor or manager can better understand how to maximize the new employee's performance and get them off to a great start within the company.
- Training and Coaching Existing Employees: This report is designed to help a supervisor or manager better understand the personality characteristics and learning style of an employee for the potential of maximizing training and coaching efforts. By understanding these characteristics and how they can affect basic work behaviors, the supervisor or manager can better understand how to maximize the employee's performance.
- Leadership - Management: This report is designed to assist in exploring areas where the individual can be developed as a leader in a managerial role. This report is broken down into sections covering behavioral areas such as Solving Problems and Making Decisions.
- Leadership - Executive: This report is designed to assist in exploring areas where the individual can be developed as a leader in an executive role. This report is broken down into sections covering areas that are typically found within an executive level position. Most executive level positions are similar to an "entrepreneurial" situation in that the individual is responsible for a business unit or major division of a company with it's own requirements for profitability, budgeting, strategic planning, etc.
