Prevue™ Assessments
The Prevue™ Assessment is a fifth generation, fully web enabled, psychometric instrument capable of providing a complete job fit analysis. Prevue is utilized; as a pre employment assessment in external recruiting, for internal advancement, in coaching and counseling, training and development, in relationship improvement and succession planning.

The process of intelligently choosing, keeping and motivating staff is one of the most difficult tasks a company can face and one of the most costly.

Do you know how much employee turnover is costing you?

Well-researched surveys reveal that it can cause monetary damages of up to 35% or more of the annual salary for most positions! Not to mention wasting time and energy on dealing with bad hires, instead of helping good hires excel.

By using the Prevue Assessment to identify and quantify the important qualities, learning abilities, interests and work related personality traits of employees, your company will experience increased productivity and a reduction in costly turnovers.

The most common model to measure preferred behavioral styles is known as the “Big Five.”

It identifies five personality dimensions: Openness (Unconventional, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness (Likeable), and Neuroticism (Stable) or “OCEAN” for short. These five independent factors can normally be found distributed across large groups of adults and are easily define:

  • Openness (Unconventional): How adventurous or open to new ideas a person is ranging from curious, unstructured, and venturesome to predictable, closed, structured, and rules oriented.
  • Conscientiousness: How persistent, motivated, and organized an individual is. The scale can range from highly dependable and disciplined to lackadaisical and carefree.
  • Extraversion: Measures what the focus of a person’s emotional energy is: outgoing, dominant, social, and ambitious or shy, quiet, and introverted.
  • Agreeableness (Likeable): How pleasant and agreeable are they? From warm, tolerant, and tactful to assertive, tough-minded, direct, and skeptical.
  • Neuroticism (Stable): Involves the degree to which a person is emotionally stable and resistant to stress. They can be self-confident, calm, adjusted, and poised or at the other extreme; often anxious and nervous.
