Management Systems Research Study
"Character measurement produced tremendous turnover reduction.
We totally integrated the Simmons Personal Survey into our Human
Resource procedures, using it specifically at three levels.
After job applicants were narrowed down to three, all were given
the Survey. We used it for
every position, from entry level throughout management. Since
we originally began by giving the Survey to all of our existing
management, we could see how the Survey scores related to success in our
stores. We knew what we
were looking for in an applicant, and could choose the one who would fit
best. We also used the
Survey to help us know which employees were really ready for promotion.
18 months, the Survey was the key to reducing turnover
from a crippling 172% to a manageable 70%."
Sumpter, Management Consultant.
"Using the Survey for promotion decisions dramatically reduced
the six months after we started using the Personal Survey, we did not
turn a single manager.
After starting to use the Survey, we only had 2 turnovers in a 3
year period of time.
