As a trainer and leadership coach, Paramount Potentials has been my exclusive provider of testing (personality and 360 assessments) for the last five years.

Paramount Potentials is keenly aware of the importance of managing relationships throughout the assessment process.  They excel at encouraging reluctant raters to complete assessments and responds immediately to any last minute changes a client may require.

Their attention to detail and customer service is exceptional and they has always exceeded my expectations!

The ProfileXT tool has been a very useful addition to our department’s interview and hiring process.  The customized criteria allowed us to effectively identify candidates with the greatest likelihood of being a successful match for the position.  The suggested interview questions based on the profile results allow us to be more focused in the interview.  Best of all, once a candidate has been hired, the results of the profile test allow us to identify potential areas for proactive coaching before the new employee has even started.

Maui Jim is proud to partner with Dorene Burkhalter of Paramount Potentials for employee development and pre-employment skill set testing.  Dorene delivers in the seat Leadership Training courses that encourage open dialogue amongst all participants in a safe, judgment-free environment.  The pre-employment skill set testing is a valuable resource in Maui Jim’s recruiting process for high profile positions.  Once the testing is complete, a detailed report covering all of the findings is provided.  The report identifies the candidate’s professional interests, strengths and areas of concern.

Using the PXT Profile XT interview guide from Paramount Potentials helped us identify candidates who would be a better fit for our position. It helped us determine which candidates we wanted to bring into the home office for face to face interviews, and saved us the time and expense of conducting home office interviews with those whose profiles didn’t meet our criteria. During home office interviews, I used several of the recommended interview questions from the guide.

Dissatisfied with our previous hiring assessment and service, we embarked on a relationship with Paramount Potentials in 2015.  From the onset, Paramount Potentials introduced us to the PXT which cost less than the previous tool, has no additional charge for the multitude of reports that the PXT provides, plus the ongoing training and consulting with our managers is included in the fee! 

Because of Paramount Potential’s desire to partner with our managers to provide them with a tool they can understand, my managers are re-engaged in the hiring process and actually value the information in the PXT report.

Last, but not least, over the past four years, our testing utilization has been cut in half with our new hire retention increasing and our voluntary turnover decreasing.  The icing on the cake is that Paramount Potentials is led by an Industrial/Organizational Psychologist who has our best interest in mind – ensuring that the validity and reliability of our testing tools & process is legally sound!
