Workplace Attitudes

Hiring the right people depends on what you know about them. Finding out what you need to know before you hire someone is challenging, time-consuming and expensive, not to mention the legal issues. Despite our best efforts, hiring often becomes guesswork.

Imagine being able to sit down with all of an applicant’s previous employers and ask any question you wanted about his or her other on-the-job performance and get candid, unbiased and complete answers. Would you have the information you need to make better hiring decisions? Of course. But even if this were possible, who would have the time? Certainly not your managers.

Orion® pre-employment surveys are as close as you can get to this kind of information. And, you can get it in minutes. Orion applicant screenings give you a quick snap-shot of someone’s work-related attitudes, attitudes that lead to on-the-job behavior, behavior that either boosts or shrinks profits and make someone an asset or a liability..

Poor hiring decisions are the #1 cause of turnover, and no amount of training can overcome the negative impact

Most people are hired for their knowledge, skill and experience and management’s gut-feelings and pressure to fill a position.

Most people are fired for their unacceptable attitude and behavior, none of which can be determined completely and accurately from a resume’, reference check or interviews.

Our applicant screening assessments will help you reduce interviewing time and expense, make more informed hiring decisions and decrease expensive turnover.

“None of us is as smart as all of us.” – Ken Blanchard

The hardest skills in business (and life) are working with other people, because everyone has different beliefs and a different view of how work should be done.

The most effective teams have members who understand themselves, and each other. When a team can understand the unique behaviors and motivators of one another, they can begin to understand the thought behind each individual idea.

Our Team Behaviors and Team Motivators assessment helps teams accomplish more in less time and become capable of handling all aspects required for success.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could just clone your best people

The right talent in the right job equals top performance and employee satisfaction, which is exactly what every company wants.

Traditional job descriptions are often only 1-dimensional by describing WHAT (tasks, knowledge, skills) a job requires, with little, if any, description of HOW (attitudes/behaviors/motivators) a job is to be performed to be successful.

Our 3-dimensional Job Talent Benchmarks help you identify and document the workplace attitudes, behaviors and motivators “soft skills” required to be successful in every key position.

20% of sales people account for 80% of sales

Identifying the 20% in an interview is difficult because selling themselves is what sales people do best. If they wore a special t-shirt, then hiring the best would be a lot easier.

What about the other 80%?

Most sales professionals who experience a sales slump, have merely lost sight of the behaviors and work habits it takes to be successful. With a proper unbiased, objective diagnosis like our Professional Sales Profile, a sales slump can be turned into sales success.

Our Professional Sales Profile takes the guesswork out of hiring and development, by identifying a sales person’s attitudes, skills, behaviors, driving forces and work habits, so you can coach and help them move up to the 20% group.

“People tend to leave because of their managers, not because of their companies” Source: Gallup

A good supervisor or manager can be worth their weight in gold; but a poor one can do more harm than good.

Successful employees are often promoted to a supervisory or management position, but past success as an employee doesn’t always translate in success in management.

A poor promotion decision can result in a double loss by sacrificing a top performing employee for a mediocre or incompetent manager.
