BOARDMAN, Ohio, April 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PeopleKeys today announces a version of their Perfect Match Hiring Technology scaled for small to medium-sized businesses. Perfect Match Technology is a patent-pending technology previously incorporated into large-scale, online hiring processes where soft skills play a large role in the success of a hire.
Utilizing numerous valid and reliable assessments, Perfect Match Hiring Technology has been proven to be effective as a pre-screening, filtering tool ensuring the right behavioral and cultural fit which maximizes retention, decreases turnover, and confirms the new hire will be more fulfilled and productive.
Perfect Match's developer, PeopleKeys, has studied occupational behaviors for 30 + years. Critical soft skills necessary to excel in a role, like communication, group thinking, and workplace values, have been evaluated by PeopleKeys. By identifying the ideal blend of behavioral dimensions necessary for success in each occupation, Perfect Match benchmarks those qualities to qualify job applicants, thus delivering a vetted short list of candidates.
PeopleKeys' Dr. Brad Smith commented, "Success in sales, customer service, and management depends largely on communication, relationships, and leadership that experience and education tell little about. Since we provide filtering services for internal hiring to leaders in recruiting and hiring (Manpower and CareerBuilder), we can certainly provide these services to the small business person as well."
Smith also commented, "In today's hiring market, it's not hard to attract applicants; the key is finding the perfect fit, because companies are being selective. If people are a perfect match to their environment and job requirements, then energy is used in productivity. Otherwise, energy is put into adapting and surviving and the productivity decreases."
Brian Ward, CEO of Giant Ideas Marketing in Pittsburgh commented, "Our greatest asset is our people. PeopleKeys measures what we previously thought was immeasurable."
Dave Pill, senior consultant to Manpower and other companies added, "Perfect Match shows you things that you wouldn't otherwise know until someone was on the job for several months and by that time a costly mistake has already been made.
