Step One Survey II®

Our Step One Survey II® (SOSII) is a brief pre-hire assessment that measures an individual’s basic work-related values. It is used primarily as a screening tool early in the candidate selection process.

This assessment provides valid insight into an applicant’s work ethic, reliability, integrity, propensity for substance abuse, and attitudes toward theft —including property, data and time.

Product Description

Step One Survey II®

Did You Know?

  •  95% of employers are victims of theft.
  • 17% of violent crimes occur in the workplace.
  • 30% of job applications contain false information.

Why assess employees with SOSII?

It’s a startling fact – employee theft and fraud averages $9.00 a day per employee! That’s about $2,000 per employee subtracted from your bottom line every year. While all employees have opportunities to steal, an employer’s risk increases as people advance to upper levels of responsibility. High ranking executives have been known to embezzle tens of thousands – even millions of dollars. Could there be a better reason to hire people worthy of your trust?

SOSII helps organizations reduce hiring risk in a quick and cost effective manner. It is a scientifically designed assessment tool that helps answer these questions:

  • “Can this applicant be trusted?”
  • “Is this applicant drug free?”
  • “Is this applicant dependable?”
  • “Will this applicant be a long-term, hard-working employee?”

In many organizations, it is the first screen that all applicants must pass before proceeding in the hiring process.

How does the SOSII assessment work?

Most of our clients require job candidates to take the SOSII online, but paper and pencil is also available when this is not possible. An HR administrator simply forwards a link to job candidates. 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.
