If your organization is hiring more than 200 new employees each year, our experts at the Wharton School can conduct a validation study to show how well our pre-hire assessment works. Here's how validation studies work: Employees take our off-the-shelf assessment and their scores are matched with safety behavior data from their supervisors logging their performance.
It's important to us that our clients feel confident their employees will follow safety procedures. Measuring this with a safety-focused assessment is tricky because the right answer to questions are often obvious to job applicants. The Optimize Hire Safety Assessment evaluates job applicants on traits that are highly correlated with safety behaviors. We can also assess safety related traits including risk-taking, authority, and more.
