What are Behavioural Assessments?

In organisational contexts, behavioural assessments measure what can be directly observed. Reports of behaviour may come from the individual themselves (‘self-report’), from observations made by others (‘other-report’) or a combination of the two, as in 360 feedback where ratings of behaviour are obtained from multiple sources. Behavioural assessments often measure pragmatic constructs that are of direct relevance to organisations (e.g. planning and organising, persuading and influencing) and may be tied to tools such as competency frameworks. Behavioural Assessments may have some psychometric properties, but do not typically claim to measure the underlying psychological constructs that influence observable behaviour.

The Harrison Assessments System provides a comprehensive assessment of the behavioural competencies required for a position and accurately predicts success and potential obstacles. Integrated selection tools include performance based interviewing questions, how to attract the candidate, and the ability to calculate eligibility, suitability, and interview ratings for a composite ranking of candidates.

The assessment is web-based and scored online with comprehensive results available within 15 seconds.

Enjoyment Performance Theory:  Enjoyment Performance Theory states that an individual will perform more effectively in a job if they enjoy the tasks required by that job, have interests that relate to the position, and have work environment preferences that correspond with the environment of the workplace. Harrison Assessment’s global research indicates that the enjoyment of these various aspects of a job is highly correlated with good performance. "If you enjoy an activity, you tend to do it more. By doing it more, you tend to learn and improve the related skills. As a result, you tend to gain recognition (including self recognition) which helps you enjoy the activity more."

Candidates rank answers in order of what you they  know enjoy. Enjoyment performance theory states that if someone enjoys 75% of the tasks required in a job role they are 3x more likely to be successful.

Paradox Theory: Harrison Assessment’s Paradox Theory provides a greater depth of psychological understanding because it reveals an entire system of behaviour rather than merely offering insights about specific traits. It also predicts stress behaviour and provides a framework that facilitates objective understanding of self and a clear direction for self-development.

 

Eligibility/Suitability

The ability to predict job performance is dependent upon identifying all of the critical factors. If one assesses eligibility or technical competencies, it only represents a portion of the critical factors to predict performance. When behavioural competencies are also measured, such as emotional intelligence, personality, and work preferences, a high degree of accuracy is attained to predict performance.

Note: No training required use the assessment as we will support you in administering and delivering the reports to you. should you wish to manage this process yourself, we would be able to offer the training.
