Employee Turnover can be very costly.  When factoring the costs of recruitment, hiring, training, lost productivity, and lost sales during the process, an employer will likely lose tens of thousands of dollars on each lost employee.  Using DISC hiring lessens the long-term cost of hiring by reducing employee turnover, increasing retention, helping to maintain top performers, and building strong teams.

The DISC Assessment gives crucial information about one’s personality style that is either a good match or not a match for any particular position.  The DISC Assessment focuses on aspects of the personality such as communication, ability to work with a team, decision making ability and management propensity, attention to detail and organizational skills, and what keeps a person motivated.  By applying DISC for hiring, even if it’s the DISC Assessment alone without any applied job benchmarking or consultancy, it gives an employer critical information about their potential hire that otherwise cannot be gauged from reading only a resume.

What is benchmarking?  This is the process of identifying the soft skills and personality requirements that are most successful within any particular job or career cluster.  By identifying what would make a person in this position most successful, motivated, and accurate, we can create ranges of dominance, influence, steadiness, and compliance within each position that ideally a new employee’s DISC Assessment style would match.  For example, a sales person should have people skills, where an administrative assistant or IT professional should have organizational skills and the ability to pay close attention to details.  Having a programmer who didn’t create accurate code or a sales person who experienced anxiety when interacting with people could create a dangerous combination.  By creating customized career benchmarks and giving all prospective hires a DISC Assessment, you can match which qualified applicants would be the most successful within the position, leading to employee retention, increased productivity, high morale, and more.
