Assessing Support Staff
Build your flexible staffing team with a positive work ethic and strength in workplace thinking skills. INSIGHT Support brings a fast and thorough assessment to part time, temporary, seasonal and transient workforce who are often pivotal in maintaining group performance in critical areas such as customer service, loss prevention and overall quality.
INSIGHT Support, used as a screening tool, will improve the quality, ability and conscientiousness of these key worker groups. Clients can experience cost and time savings by using INSIGHT Support to streamline the review of large group or high turnover staffing needs.
New workers who are willing to grow
INSIGHT Support has been calibrated for entry level, temporary, seasonal or highly supervised staff whose primary responsibility is to complete their assigned tasks. Minimum 7th grade reading skills are recommended. These workers may work directly with customers or may be responsible for product creation or logistics.
INSIGHT Support measures:
- What personal habits of mind do test takers bring their work? How do they choose to apply their reasoning abilities? INSIGHT Support presents job situations that require test takers to make personal decisions based on their experience, beliefs, preferences and attitudes. Questions have been designed to measure the mental disciplines that impact how individual judgments are made.
- INSIGHT Support measures nine positive work ethic attributes: dependability, honesty, job commitment, workplace safety, professionalism, workplace tolerance, workplace flexibility, desire to work, desire to learn.
- Time required: 25 minutes
- Format: short “Agree-Disagree” style items
Workplace Thinking Skills
- INSIGHT Support problems present everyday scenarios which require staff to understand their job duties, understand directions, anticipate the consequences of decisions and to anticipate the needs of clients. Often employees in these jobs must be able to handle money, so some problems also require numeric reasoning skills necessary to understand what their job involves.
- Thinking skills measured by INSIGHT Support include understanding directions, seeing consequences, working with numbers and overall thinking skills.
- Time Allowed: 45 minutes
- Format: multiple choice questions requiring basic job-related thinking skills.

INDIVIDUAL REPORTS document strengths and areas for growth
For each individual you will know:
- Overall score: You will know if the total numeric score indicates Superior, Strong, Moderate skills at this level– or if the skills were Not Manifested.
- Did the individual candidate demonstrate core critical thinking skills in the required decision-making domains? Reports explain each of the key aspects of decision making and how it impacts success. At a glance, you’ll see a qualitative rating (Superior, Strong skills, Moderate, or Not Manifested) for each skill or attribute.
- Numerical scores and recommended performance assessments reflect the extent to which the person being assessed manifested a given skill or attribute. The recommended performance assessments (qualitative scores) reported are always relative to the level of the INSIGHT assessment instrument: Executive, Professional, Staff or Support.
GROUP REPORTS for team assessment, ranking candidates, talent identification
- Group reports display aggregated statistics and bar-charts on each INSIGHT metric. These reports have many uses including guiding employee development initiatives over time, comparing different groups engaged in similar tasks at a given organizational level or aiding in the establishment of threshold skill levels to qualify candidates for interviews.
Critical Thinking skills and mindset evaluated
- INSIGHT assessments include two sets of evaluations; Section 1 assesses 10 aspects of the business employee mindset. Section 2 assesses 5 decision making skills plus the overall numeric score. The multi-level scales on INSIGHT products have been rigorously calibrated to show how applicants apply their reasoning skills to job-related situations.
- INSIGHT assessments are available whenever needed 24/7. Upon completion of the assessment, we can have results sent directly to you or your authorized representative.
