ProActive believes in helping HR Practitioners develop evidence-based hiring processes that are scientifically designed to have high predictive validity. We do this through the following steps:

  1. We help you identify what you’re trying to accomplish. Decreased turnover? Increased sales? Better product quality? Less absenteeism? Better safety record? Less theft? Better morale or productivity? Increased customer satisfaction? There are different assessment instrument specifically designed to address each of these (and many more) organizational challenges.
  2. We help you identify a good tool that will have a measurable impact on your goal. We only work with the absolute best tools available in the marketplace—with proven reliability and validity.
  3. We help you measure the impact that an assessment tool is having. With this information, you can quantify the impact that your expertise in selecting a hiring tool has on the organization’s bottom line!

In designing a highly predictive selection process, it is critical to understand that some things are better predictors than others.

Some of the assessment instruments we work with:

Step One Survey

The Step-One Survey is a brief pre-employment assessment that provides valid insight into an applicant’s work ethic, reliability, integrity, propensity for substance abuse and attitudes toward theft —including property, data, and time. This assessment helps organizations reduce hiring risk in a quick and cost-effective manner, and has proven results in reducing 90-day turnover.
