Employee assessments give organizations and managers consistent, in-depth, and objective information about their people. This includes the employee’s:

  • Fit with organizational culture, job, manager, and team

  • Knowledge, skills, job performance, and developmental needs

  • Preferred learning and communication style

  • Integrity, reliability and work ethic

Information uncovered from assessments helps leaders and managers rely less on gut instinct and make smarter people decisions. The specific benefits include:

  • Selecting people most likely to succeed in a job

  • Accelerating time for people to become fully productive in a new role

  • Improving alignment and communication between managers and employees

  • Reducing workforce conflict and improving employee satisfaction

  • Maximizing each employee’s contribution to the organization

  • Reducing employee absenteeism and turnover

  • Increasing sales performance and customer loyalty

  • Enabling strategic workforce management and succession planning

  • Increasing overall workforce capability, productivity, and agility

Crescendo Leadership Development is an authorized business partner of  Profiles International to administer these assessment tools.

CheckPoint 360°™

The CheckPoint Feedback System is a 360-degree survey.  It is used primarily to evaluate the effectiveness of managers and leaders. This survey combines feedback from Direct Reports, Peers, Supervisors, and even customers, with a personalized program for developing specific leadership skills based on that feedback. This process highlights a manager’s job performance in eight Universal Management Competencies: Communication, Leadership, Adaptability, Relationships, Task management, Production, Development of Others, and Personal Development and eighteen key skills sets.

CheckPoint 360° helps align managers and their bosses by identifying and comparing the six critical skills required for success in a role. This helps identify talents, gaps, and focus areas to get everyone on the same page to deliver on the organization’s strategy.

Profiles Sales Assessment™

The Profiles Sales Assessment™ (PSA) measures how well a person fits specific sales jobs in your organization. It is used primarily for selecting, on-boarding and managing sales people and account managers.  The “job modeling” feature of the PSA is unique and can be customized by company, sales position, department, manager, geography, or any combination of these factors. This enables you to evaluate an individual relative to the qualities required to perform successfully in a specific sales job in your organization. It also predicts on-the-job performance in seven critical sales behaviors: prospecting, call reluctance, closing the sale, self- starting, teamwork, building and maintaining relationships, and compensation preference.
