The PEP survey was designed to give the interviewer valuable insight into a job applicant’s attitudes, values and background. Key areas include: honesty, reporting dishonesty, socialization, drugs, employment background, work ethic, absenteeism and tardiness.
The PEP will help you to:
- Reduce turnover (while increasing productivity)
- Quickly identify high-risk applicants
- Reduce interviewing time for your management
- Create uniform hiring standards throughout the organization
Even if you are “forced” to hire a high-risk applicant (due to a poor applicant pool or immediate need), the results of the PEP provide you with valuable information that you can use to help coach a candidate to success. By knowing the strengths and weaknesses of a candidate up front, you can more effectively hire, train and retain employees.
The PEP undergoes continual validation studies and is in compliance with EEOC/ADA guidelines. It is available in both English and Spanish, as well as versions for certain states and Canada. Applicant’s answers can be scored via fax, phone or internet 24 hours a day, with results being faxed or e-mailed directly back — usually within 1-3 minutes.
The PEP has distinct advantages over other screening programs. The inclusion of two Distortion Scales ensures that applicants who attempt to falsify the results (or “beat the test”) are evaluated with caution. The detailed, yet easy to read report highlights additional interviewing questions and reference checking questions which make follow-up simple for the interviewer. We also offer a verbal consultation on every result — at no additional fee!
The PEP is not a timed instrument, but the average applicant typically takes 20-25 minutes to complete the survey. Administration time for the hiring official is minimal.
Cost: $20 each (volume discounts available with commitment)
