Many of our customers have told us about the challenges they face when performing a meaningful on-boarding process since they are unable to meet the new employee in person when hiring during a pandemic. Once you have hired a new employee using the Profile PXT Assessment Technology, a Manager/Employee report is created. Find a sample report here. The Profile PXT Manager/Employee report reflects three things that will help to enhance this on-boarding process:
- A common language for the manager and new employee to discuss optimal ways to efficiently and effectively interact with each other.
- Enhanced employee engagement. A key statistic to keep in mind is that on average, in today’s environment, employees in general are only about 60% engaged. One of the key causes of this low engagement percentage is that leaders have a difficult time really demonstrating to their people that they know and understand them and that their job matters and is relevant. The Manager/Employee report not only demonstrates that the leader is interested in understanding and knowing their direct report but it also provides data about the leader to their employee so the direct report really knows and understands their manager. This Profiles PXT assessment starts the new employee off with the likelihood of higher engagement and performance in their new role.
- Build trust between the manager and new hire. By sharing this personal information with each other, specific standards, expectations, and personal accountabilities are being set for future coaching and development discussions.
