Personnel Evaluation Profile (PEP)

The PEP survey is designed to evaluate a person's basic value system: their background, attitudes, and beliefs concerning key areas such as honesty, reporting dishonesty, customer service, socialization, drugs, employment background, work ethic, absenteeism, and tardiness. It is not meant to replace any industry specific “skills” testing or psychological evaluation, but rather to direct the backgrounding officer as to what areas are weak in this person’s overall character. The PEP can aid in the basic structure of your hiring process - all applicants (sworn, correctional, detention officers, 911-dispatch, CSO’s, administrative, records, etc.) are evaluated on the same questions in the same manner.

The PEP will help you to:

Real life scenario: Two departments, using the PEP, rejected the same eligible candidate based on the PEP results prior to running his background check. Their cost was $20. A third department ran a complete background investigation on this same individual, only to reject him as a result of the background check. Their cost? Over $1,000. This department now uses the PEP prior to running their backgrounds.

The PEP undergoes continual validation studies and is in compliance with EEOC/ADA guidelines. It is available in both English and Spanish. Applicant's answers can be scored via fax or internet 24 hours a day, with results being e-mailed directly back--usually in less than one minute!

The inclusion of two Distortion Scales ensures that applicants who attempt to falsify the results (or "beat the test") are evaluated with caution. The detailed, yet easy to read report highlights additional interviewing questions and reference checking questions which make follow-up easy for the interviewer. We also offer a verbal consultation on every result--at no additional fee!

The PEP is not a timed instrument; however, we find the average applicant takes approximately 20-25 minutes. Administration time is minimal for the hiring official.
