The Judgment Index™ is effective throughout an entire organization — from the boardroom to the mailroom.
A basic, straightforward and yet extremely beneficial service of the Judgment Index™ is to improve the hire / no hire decision.
Corporations often make their decisions based on interviews, resumes, skill sets, and past job performance. While those considerations are important, hire / no hire decisions are greatly improved when the measurement of judgment is included.
Some organizations use personnel assessment tools, the majority of which are based on some sort of personality profile.
Studies have shown that personality profiles simply are not a good predictor of success, whereas judgment is. Similar studies have also shown that interviews alone, whether structured or unstructured, are not highly reliable indicators of future job performance.
The Judgment Index™ is a predictive tool that can quickly and accurately measure candidate judgment using over 70 indicators.
