The Alignment of Employment Success

The world's most accurate personality assessment test takes only 8 minutes to complete and has a 10-day money-back guarantee. What are you waiting for?

The Core Values Index psychometric assessment has one purpose at its core (if you forgive the pun): to define the DNA of the individual's personality. It is the operating system of the self, and nothing else comes close to its reliability and ease of use. You can take the assessment in 8 minutes and the results don't require a PhD in social psychology to interpret.

When a job seeker takes the CVI and learns many great insights about themselves, how do they use that to find a great job, one that makes them feel fulfilled and engaged? To line up the individual with a great role, you must also define the characteristics of the role itself.

That's where eRep's Top Performer Profile™ comes in. The TPP gathers the characteristics of the role and analyzes the profiles of the top performers on your team and converts that information into a CVI score for the role. Match the CVI profiles of job candidates to the TPP score of the role and you can achieve total alignment between person and position.

What does this perfect alignment feel like? We have heard from many individuals who were placed with a CVI-TPP match and their feedback has been consistently positive.

We hear comments like, "It just fits" and "It feels like this position was made just for me."

Employees placed via a Top Performer Profile match also report higher engagement and fulfillment in Happiness Index surveys. Turnover is dramatically lower, too, which is a huge concern right now as voluntary departures by employees is at a record high. And employees that are highly recommended via their TPP match also outperform their unmatched co-workers by up to 200%.

Why does the CVI and TPP system work so well?

There is no psychometric assessment or personality test on the market today more reliable than the Core Values Index. It achieves a 97.7% repeat reliability rating in longitudinal studies — nothing else even comes close. The well-known Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) struggles to achieve a 75% repeat reliability1. Most don't even crack 70%.

The CVI's powerful and reliable simplicity makes it easy and very cost-effective to implement across the organization. Top Performer Profiles can be conducted not only for new positions and new hires, it is also very effective at analyzing and aligning existing positions as part of a human capital audit. Organizations can use a TPP and staff CVI inventory to make sure existing staff are in the right seats based on their profiles. Company-wide alignment can be achieved with relatively little investment and huge rate-of-return benefits.

Talent acquisition and talent management success is achieved when the personality DNA of an individual is perfectly aligned with their role. That alignment is obtained with the power of the Core Values Index and Top Performer Profiles.
