The AVA Behavioral Assessment System was developed more than 50 years ago and has been used successfully by many organizations for measuring the compatibility of individuals to a specific job. A critical factor in building and maintaining an engaged workforce includes having the right people in the right jobs. Studies show that poor job fit contributes to lower engagement, lower job satisfaction and lower productivity.
The AVA is recommended as a pre-hire assessment. It may be taken online on in a paper version, and is available in a variety of languages. It measures several of an individual’s key behavioral attributes and ties them to the needs of a specific opening or position. The easy-to-read report shares valuable insights on a job candidate or employee based on decades of research on job fit. Benefits of using the tool include improved interviews, better hiring decisions and reduced turnover. The results can also help in defining training and coaching strategies aimed at helping each employee excel in his or her work.
