Job Analysis:

The application of job analysis techniques makes the implicit assumption that information about a job as it presently exists may be used to develop programs to recruit, select, train, and appraise people for the job as it will exist in the future. Given a rapidly changing internal and external world it is likely that many jobs will change in the future. Let us help your organization establish and document the 'job relatedness' of employment procedures such as training, selection, compensation, and performance appraisal.

Assessment Centers

Our assessment centers are interactive, allowing the assessors opportunities to ask follow-up questions in a controlled environment and consistent manner.  Candidates appreciate the opportunity to explain their answers, and assessors appreciate the multiple opportunities to delve below the surface for answers.

By contrast our assessment centers are vastly different from our competitors.  First, many of our competitors use a non-interactive approach in which the candidates speak to either a camera or a group of blank-faced assessors.  In such an environment, the assessors grade responses in a simplistic, black-and-white manner.


Custom Exams

Our written tests are designed for the highest level of validity.  Our clients know that we do not ask picky questions, or questions where contradictory information is found in the sources or in practice.  Our job knowledge test questions and answers are straightforward and taken directly from the source material.

Executive Search

We have developed a process that can be tailored to the search criteria and needs of clients which is more affordable and reliable.

Job Analysis

The purpose of Job Analysis is to establish and document the 'job relatedness' of employment procedures such as training, selection, compensation, and performance appraisal.  Our firm completes a comprehensive and custom-designed job analysis for every individual position.

Our firm reviews and analyzes previous job analysis information, as well as any other documentation relevant to the position(s). We also examine documentation that most other consultants ignore but which can provide unique and valuable insights into the positions such as performance evaluation forms, procedure manuals, critical incident reports, and other documentation.

We at FirstIdea conduct on-site meetings with Subject Matter Experts which include incumbents and supervisors of the position.  The purpose of these meetings will be to confirm the information contained in the documentation relevant to the position. We take advantage of these meetings as an opportunity to build trust and confidence in the process.  It is our belief that success in promotional testing requires trust and confidence from all stakeholders.
