Kommentare: Have been using the Berke Profile and its predecessor for over fifteen years. I've change industries from homebuilding to healthcare. I continue to use the Berke with management and professional candidates. When reviewing the Berke summary with candidates they are almost always amazed at how well the profile captures their personal characteristics relating to the environment of the open position. The Berke is easy to administer and the results are provided within minutes of the candidate completing the profile. Quite of bit of helpful information is provided with the completed profile so even a more inexperienced supervisor is able to successfully work their way through the information provided. I have watched the Berke report evolve with changing workforce demographics and needs. When the Berke is used as a tool in the hiring process, and not as the criteria for a hiring decision, the discussion between candidate and company representative is extremely productive for both parties.

Vorteile: When I have taken the time to accurately provide a thorough job standard, the compatibility results are right on. Additionally, as I review the Berke with a candidate, it is not very far into the process before they are usually able to tell me where they are within the criteria before I discuss the actual Berke findings with them as we run through the summary report.

Nachteile: I really do not have any issues or suggestions for improvement. After having been involved with so many profiles I do find it easier to find the more subtle nuances in the summary. Not sure there is anything but time in service with the Berke which will bring many of those to the surface for discussion.

Kommentare: We are increasing the data in which we use to analyze applicants. The more information we can gather, the better our decision making process is. We have been able to save time not interviewing applicants who score low and ask direct questions that help us avoid poor hiring decisions. This of course saves our team time, money, and energy.

Vorteile: The Berke assessment describes everyone in a positive manner, looking at behaviors and putting them in context of the job position. It adds another layer of data to our decision making process and provides questions to consider when interviewing each candidate. Each candidate (and our team) feels that the summary accurately describes them. This is a useful tool for our team leaders after the hire to know how to work best with each team member. We also like that you can send as many assessments as you like and pay a quarterly flat rate. This allows us to gather as much data as we need in order to make the best hiring decisions.

Nachteile: It's hard! Just kidding, but some of our applicants do get a little stressed about some of the timed sections. Even this is helpful in learning about people however.

Kommentare: The customer support side has been wonderful. I know if I email them, they'll get back to me quickly and that they really want to help me be successful.

Vorteile: The assessments are stunningly accurate. Showing results to a spouse or colleagues usually gets uncomfortable laughter as the results are so candid and true that people can't believe it. This service saves me so much time as a hiring manager. Working in mining and dealing with a candidate base of people unfamiliar with this type of work can make finding the right person tough. I do a quick phone screen followed by the Berke Assessment (which has the value to me of 3 in-person interviews). We move directly into a site visit and job shadowing from there, and we confidently make offers next. We're completely skipping the miserable classic interview process and moving forward with good data - never needing to just trust our guts on candidates.

Nachteile: Does not work well with our ATS (BambooHR). I have to sign into Berke to manage candidates and also manage them separately on our ATS.

Kommentare: Berke allows us to hone in on the talents and traits that make the job easier for our best performers. The interview questions that are generated allow us to gain a depth of knowledge about each of the areas in question.

Vorteile: The profiles are easy to use and customizable to fit the talent make-up of your best employees.

Nachteile: We've been with Berke as they have grown as well. Some of the earliest iterations of the software were missing some key elements. They've been on this platform for a while now and it's hard to find any issues.

Kommentare: I often recommend it to clients who need an applicant assessment screening program at a fair price with numerous options for tailoring it to the specific needs of different job positions. It allows a benchmark of all positions to be created easily for screening out candidates that do not fit the needs of the job.

Vorteile: Its flexibility is choosing characteristics & skills needed to complete a job successfully. The scoring option that shows how close of a fit a candidate is to the job and specific interview questions!

Nachteile: The Integrity section needs to be strengthened.

Vorteile: I like that the website is able to determine what is a general best fitting "type" of personality for the job position and gives you a explanation of each category and how that can affect the person in the position.

Nachteile: Sometimes, the generalization can deter an employer from seeing a potential employee candidate due to them being placed in a number category.

Kommentare: Since we started using the Berke Assessment we have avoided hiring a couple individuals that appeared to have the right answers but their assessment showed otherwise. It has also helped us hire a couple of individuals that didn't really sell themselves as the perfect candidate but the assessment showed they were and have done a great job since hiring them.
