Assessment

Look Beneath the Surface

In an interview, most candidates are trying to give you the answers they think you want to hear.  That's one of the things that makes hiring such a challenge.  You have to separate who the person says they are from who they really are.  If you don't look beneath the surface, you'll never understand the individual's true strengths and weaknesses.

What does Berke measure?

People are hard wired with traits that determine what they do well, what they do easily and what they enjoy.  When candidates take our assessment, we can zero in on what makes them tick. Berke's personality tests and intelligence tests measure a person's natural behaviors, talents and intelligence. Berke tells you immediately what it could take months to find out on the job.

How do we do it?

We’ve developed sophisticated algorithms and formulas unique to the Berke Assessment.  We use these to identify and measure an individual’s key traits.  Each question your candidate answers feeds into our model.  We sort and combine responses to pinpoint the person’s most prominent natural behaviors and talents.

Validation

The Berke Assessment is continuously and rigorously validated by our team.   We've developed a research program which analyzes reliability, validity, and predictiveness of scales. We continually look at job targets and job definitions in order to refine the algorithms that connect job descriptions to job targets.

We Measure What Doesn't Change

Training can provide new hires with the knowledge and skills they lack.  But there are some things you just can't teach.  Berke measures core qualities--behavior, talents, intelligence--that candidates either have or don't have.    We help you avoid the frustrating and time-consuming process of trying to change how people are hard wired.

It’s Quick and Convenient

Most candidates complete the Berke Assessment in less than an hour.  Since it’s on-line, they can take it in your office or at a remote location, whichever is most convenient.  And once they're finished, you'll receive the results immediately.

The Berke Difference

One thing Berke measures that most assessments don't is natural talent.  Talent is what allows a person to perform a task quickly and easily where others may struggle.  Does the job require someone who can solve complex problems?  A person who can think on his or her feet?  Berke can tell you if your candidate naturally has the talent to do those things and more.
