Vancouver, WA -- Select Advantage, an innovative human resources consulting firm, recently released a Transit Supervisor assessment to round out the existing suite of assessments created specifically for the transit industry: Bus/Coach Operator, Paratransit Operator, and Transit Customer Service Representative. Geoff Rodgers, president of Select Advantage, feels that this newest assessment is especially valuable given the research showing that supervisors have a huge impact on productivity, job satisfaction, and retention. "People don't leave jobs. They leave supervisors," Rodgers stated.
The assessments offered by Select Advantage are unique in that they are job specific and behaviorally based. They are constructed using a thorough job analysis that utilizes superior performers from that same position. Rodgers explains, "The assessments are designed to measure specific job behaviors. They do not measure personality or psychological constructs, rather they measure the person for the job. It is those innate behaviors that you cannot teach which determine success on the job."
The scoring of the Select Advantage assessments measure how closely an applicant matches to the behaviors of superior performers in that same job. The higher the score, the greater the match and the greater likelihood of success on the job. Rodgers adds another benefit of these assessments, “When utilized early in the hiring or promotional process, it helps to streamline the process by reducing interviewing time with substandard applicants.”
