Q. How are the Profiles International assessments different from "personality tests"?
A. A generic "personality test" is typically too broad to be of specific use in the organizational environment. The Profiles International assessments focus on a variety of indicators to provide specific guidance for making management decisions. The Profile XT, for example, measures whether a candidate for a position is the right fit for a job based on multiple factors. Along with the report on how their skills and interests and work styles fit the job, you'll also get a list of interview questions and management
suggestions to help this person maximize their performance should you decide to hire them.
Read the descriptions of the Profiles International assessments to learn more about how each one provides a solution for you.
Q. What do these assessments cost?
A. The assessments are prepaid and range in price from $N to $X. Compared to the cost of using a staffing agency, or the expense of hiring the wrong person, or the increased productivity you'll gain by having the right person in the right job, the price of the assessment is small by comparison, well worth the investment.
Q. How much time does the process take to administer the assessments and receive reports?
A. Setting the benchmark for some tests may take a few hours initially. Completing the assessments takes from 30 minutes to a couple of hours. Reports are generated instantly and can be viewed online or sent via e-mail.
Q. I've lost my Assessment Center password, or my current password is not working.

Q. Is there any gender or racial bias in the assessments I should be concerned about?
A. All of the Profiles International assessments have been designed to be gender, race, and age neutral. You can use the assessments in complete confidence that they will be appropriate and fair for everyone.
Q. What do you mean by the "People Puzzle"?
A. An organization is only as good as its human resources. Your people are your greatest strength and at the same time, could be your greatest weakness. Solving problems like turnover and employee theft are visibly obvious issues; but more money is actually lost due to having the wrong people in the wrong jobs, ineffective managers and salespeople, and teams which do not communicate and work together efficiently. Getting all these pieces to fit together toward achieving your objectives is what we call the "People Puzzle". The assessments and consulting services provided by Business Insight Technologies will help you solve your "People Puzzle".
Q. Which assessment tool is right for my situation? Which one I should use first?
