Why Assess Sales People?
Many sales people are competitive and persuasive. Given the opportunity to land a new job or to be promoted, they may tell you what you want to hear instead of the truth. Additionally, so much of their success depends on the specific type of sales job and the organization in which they would work. Success seldom transfers automatically. The cost of failure in a sales job is very high considering the hiring and ramp-up costs, low sales productivity, and disruption to existing customers. The PSA gives you an objective inside look at the behaviors and motives of your sales people and sales managers to help you make better decisions.
How Does the Profile Sales Assessment Work?
Prior to assessing candidates, our experts help you develop peak performance models for your jobs using questions to direct you in comparing job candidates. Once established, our clients deliver the PSA to their candidates over the Internet—hiring managers or an HR administrator simply forwards a link. The assessment does not need to be monitored, so the candidate can take it from any computer with Internet access. The system instantly scores the assessment and informs the hiring managers where they can access the results.
The hiring manager can use the results as a screening tool or to assist them in the interviewing, selection, and onboarding process.
