Organizational performance management depends to a great extent on aligning your
performance management tools with the business strategies of the company. Great
performance managers begin with competency development. In other words there is a
competency model for the job which can be imported into a software program and used for
multiple applications: selection testing, individual development, 360 feedback and
talent management. The Pleasure of Your Company™ (TPOYC) provides a comprehensive suite
of human performance improvement products and services – including Assess Systems software,
for your competency models, selection tests and 360 feedback. Additionally TPOYC offers a
comprehensive suite of online and classroom training in leadership, service, sales, and Wiley’s DiSC™ Profile Assessments.

The Pleasure of Your Company™ utilizes the sophisticated ASSESS Systems software for
performance management. Once the company’s business strategy has been defined, TPOYC
begins developing competency models for key positions that generate revenue or have high
turnover. By developing competency models for these high stake positions first, TPOYC can help
you recruit the best talent, utilizing selection testing designed from the competency model.
The use of the model in the selection and interviewing process guarantees you will hire the
best person for the role, thereby improving retention and reducing the cost and upheaval that
turnover creates. TPOYC has a variety of tools that will increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your applicant selection and hiring processes . . . at both the executive/manager level and the entry-level worker. Our performance management tools are designed to evaluate the core competencies needed for the position under recruitment.
Our state-of- the-art system evaluates the work-related personality and abilities of candidates for managerial and professional-level positions. The system administers, scores, and evaluates the results of an assessment battery. An assessment report similar to what an organizational psychologist would use is generated by use in your business environment.
TPOYC has selection tests designed to be used early in the employment selection process, after
initial screening but before the employment interview. Each test has been specifically developed
and validated for specific job type or group of jobs in a specific industry. While each measures
important underlying personality attributes in different ways, each test produces overall
predictor indices of performance and integrity appropriate to the job or industry type.
Validity testing in one job type demonstrated that up to 65% of poor performers
would have been screened out using these tools, while 33% more top performers
would have been selected in . . . without interjecting bias based on race, gender,
or ethnic group. Imagine the potential benefits to your company!!
Tests are immediately available to screen applicants in the following job areas:
Tests can be developed for any industry or job type not listed above.
Additional testing modules include:
Managers can have their direct reports complete an individual developmental ASSESS test. This offers the employee or manager the opportunity to evaluate how they are doing relative to the competency model for their role. Managers can use this information to coach their subordinates and develop a trusting, mentoring relationship to engage their teams.
It’s much easier to manage performance if employees are engaged. Fully-engaged employees understand their jobs and the role they play in the success of the organization and in many ways self-manage their day-to-day work activity. To a large extent, engaged employees are performing on their own -- management is there to provide resources, coaching and assistance. Not having to micro-manage performance on a daily basis frees management to spend more time on strategy and coordinating the operations of the organization as a whole.
Another valuable tool in employee performance management is the 360 Review. This process entails obtaining feedback from multiple sources – the employee’s supervisor, subordinates (if any), work group members and other colleagues. This breadth of information can help manage performance more effectively than the manager’s evaluation alone, and can also provide insights into opportunities for improving work assignments, procedures and employee communications all the while remaining consistent with the behaviors and competencies defined in the competency model.
