Overview of Chally and the assessment Effectively using the assessment for selection Understanding the Dealer Profiles Review Sample Reports Understanding the Results Founded in 1973 through a grant from the U.S. Justice Department In-depth assessment and performance data on over 300,000 effective performers In excess of 200 studies conducted to create a database of 156 validated work performance skills A predictive solution for management, sales, technical, customer care, and administrative positions Today Chally serves clients from small to large to global with client results representing… Up to 30% reduction in turnover Up to 35% increase in employee productivity 85%+ accuracy in identifying effective performers Assessment items were written to avoid facevalidity in order to minimize one’s ability to contrive or manipulate results Accuracy of the measures was insured by the rigor of the statistical process to develop them rather than item content Research has shown that results remain consistent over time if assessment-taking approach or mindset is held constant 288 question assessment in each profile role Available in 13 languages, questions modified for cultural differences Does not have to be taken in a controlled environment Takes 45-60 minutes to complete (not timed) True/False and multiple choice questions 4 sections Self-Descriptive Index Motivational Analysis Profile Sales Orientation Mental Abilities Test (additional 36 questions only included when assessing against a management level profile) An Effective Selection System Should Include… A select group of skills that statistically differentiates top and bottom performers for a specific position The Chally assessment compares an individual against one of Chally’s validated profiles (or a customized profile created for a client) and measures whether the individual is predicted to be successful in a specific role based on their scores on job skills that research has shown are critical for success in that role It’s not about finding “superstars,” it’s about NOT hiring “mismatches” How does Chally know that the skills within a profile are predictive? Follow-up research on major Chally assessment users finds that: 85-90% of candidates “Recommended” perform well 75-80% of candidates “Not Recommended” do not succeed on the job Available Profiles Dealer Principal Sales Management New Business Developer Account Manager Controller Dealer Principal-Assessment Skills Project Approach Profit Conscious in a Management Role Takes Initiative in a Business Unit Develops Technical Competence Takes Responsibility For Results as an Entrepreneurial Manager Ability to Learn the Business Directs and Controls Others in a Business Unit Practical Intelligence Analytical Ability Sales Management-Assessment Skills Teaching in a Structured Setting Makes Joint Calls Directs and Controls Others in a Business Unit Profit Conscious in a Management Role Takes Initiative in a Business Unit Makes Formal Presentations Focused on Quantitative Results Practical Intelligence Analytical Ability Individual Skills Scoring Measures Individual Competency (Skill) Scores 50% or higher = Strength 40-49% = Coachable or Developmental Below 40% = Not natural, requires a “work around” Capacity versus Capability Capacity = the potential as measured by the predictive skill score Recommendation Overview Bottom-Line Recommendation Recommended Average of skills is above 50% Recommended Average of skills is 50% to 65% with one or more scores under 30% Not with Concerns Recommended Average of skills is less than 50% Sample Sales Manager Assessment Report Sample Manager Assessment Report Bottom-Line Recommendation Recommended Recommended if concerns addressed can be resolved Not recommended Describes the candidate’s candor in responding to questions The Position Job Skills Sample Manager Assessment Report Definition of skill and graphic rating of level of competence Prediction of typical on-the-job behaviors and limitations Practical coaching tips for training and development Sample Manager Assessment Report Motivation or habit that is very evident in the candidate (+70% or -30%) compared to other successfully employed individuals Suggestions for a manager to best focus and motivate the candidate Because the assessment is only one part of your selection decision, it is not recommended that results be shared with candidates Common mistakes: Manager mentions that the candidate “failed that test” Candidate is told they weren’t recommended without providing any context Candidate given a copy of the report with no explanation of results! Chally recommends that results be shared with new hires as part of their on-boarding and development process The typical successful person has some very strong features and, therefore, by necessity, will have some equal and opposite weak features. The information gained can be used to highlight areas where coaching and training can help the individual be more successful.
