NEW TOOL COMING TO CANADA...
Effective Use of Psychological Tests for Recruitment and Selection reported that an increasing number of organizations are relying on psychometric assessments for screening potential employees, aligning competencies of workers to jobs, and measuring employee performance and satisfaction.
Selecting the "best" test for a specific purpose remains a huge challenge for many organizations; with the plethora of tools on the market it is easy to get overwhelmed. Some tests that are customized to meet an organization's unique needs may not be psychometrically valid, yet standardized tests with strong psychometric properties (e.g., validity, reliability) may not be quite right for your purpose.
The Life Strategies team has extensive experience in using tests for a wide range of purposes - from employee screening to return-to-work planning. We've struggled to find assessments that can be customized to align to employer goals/needs without sacrificing quality...that is, until now!
AMITAI® is a suite of tools that assess honesty, competency, 360° performance, satisfaction, and training needs. Each tool can be purchased separately or combined to provide organizations with an integrated assessment solution. What we're most impressed with is that competency language can be adjusted to match the terminology used within your organization, factors can be weighted according to the relevance for specific positions or departments, and there's ongoing research and development to continue to validate the tool.
AMITAI® has been tested, validated, and used extensively throughout Central and South America and is about to become available in Canada. If you're interested in exploring how Amitai can meet your assessment needs please complete a brief, confidential survey. Individuals completing the survey are eligible to receive 3 free uses of any one test; instructions are available at the end of the survey.
