15 Jun Attract & Hire Advancement Superstars
PDP (Professional DynaMetric Programs®) is an effective tool that we use at The Timothy Group to attract and hire advancement superstars in all things having to do with people in the workplace. PDP developed their ProScan Survey and Reports to help people understand themselves and others. The PDP components are ProScan, JobScan, and TeamScan. They define and measure strengths, providing an accurate description of a person’s style of behavior. Organizations are using the ProScan results to help them know and develop their people, to hire and place the right persons in positions, and to develop strong teams. See current research studies and published case studies.
ProScan, the core of the PDP process, is a non-threatening, quick, easy, and reliable tool that is one of the most advanced people measurement instruments available. Statistical research of working adults enables the ProScan Survey to produce reliable results to accurately assess a person’s basic and preferred work styles. The survey examines combinations of specific traits that affect how the person works most effectively and reacts under stress. ProScan focuses on strengths and motivators and is an EEOC approved hiring and workplace tool. ProScan reports measure how a person functions most naturally, the role a person feels they need to play, how a person predictably comes across to others, energy resources, satisfaction index, stress levels, energy drain, and decision-making style.
The Timothy Group takes the interpretation of the ProScan profile a step further as we use our experience in the advancement/development arena to relate these individual strengths and behaviors specifically to development activities, and provide the tools needed to ensure success.
JobScan uses a specifically designed JDA (Job Dynamics Analysis) survey to help organizations develop customized Job Models for specific positions. By defining and measuring strengths and work styles necessary for success, Job Models provide objective criteria for hiring and placement decisions.
TeamScan graphs a composite of the individuals in a group, using their individual ProScans, showing likely group work styles and preferences. TeamScan predicts group interactions, and measures group characteristics such as communication styles and team perceptions.
