Santa Barbara, CA, February 17, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Global Performance Technologies, a 20 year old firm specializing in performance assessments, launched a new service called the Headhunters Bluebook (www.headhuntersbluebook.com). Combining a derivative of GPT’s core PX-12 assessment tool, used at F500 companies to start ups for executive level evaluation, and an online candidate database management tool, the Headhunters Bluebook enables staffing agencies, executive search firms, and coaching/development firms to quickly and easily gain insight into candidates job performance. The PX-12 measures Performance IQ, a metric based on scientifically validated methodologies measuring actual “performance thinking”. The service provides a variety of reporting, management, and other tools and is based on a monthly subscription fee.
The Headhunters Bluebook provides agencies the ability to differentiate between equally qualified candidates and become more consultative with hiring managers. With the addition of the cost-effective assessment to the sourcing process, candidates are given the added benefit of a performance qualifier. Plus, the candidate career report provides both the job seeker and recruiter points on performance strength and weakness. Twelve dimensions relating to performance execution are measured and detailed in the report.
According to founder Gary Morais, “Although some assessment companies speak of performance, their tools are not strictly performance based. A great majority of assessment tools on the market measure “soft dimensions” like personality, social styles, preferences or 360 degree feedback. Yet they describe themselves as being performance based. The difference is the Px-12 Performance IQ tools provide all the necessary attributes of “performance thinking” that drives actual bottom-line results.”
The Headhunters Bluebook is targeted to Executive Search firms and staffing agencies (retained and contingency), and recruitment agencies, and Coaching/Career Development firms. It is priced to be affordable for the independent recruiter and small firm, enabling them to gain a competitive advantage over larger firms already possessing internal assessment tools. General job seekers not affiliated with a recruiting agency can access the career and personal development report for free.
