Austin, TX, March 3, 2010 – Profiles International exists to help organizations worldwide create high-performing workforces, and the company was featured in the January edition of American Executive magazine for its outstanding employee assessments.

The article, titled “Help Wanted,” outlines Profiles International’s history and objectives while speaking to the success of recent efforts. The company first focused on pre-employment assessments, but now offers products to “help measure the effectiveness of the entire workforce.” Profiles International assessments complement each other nicely, and one assessment can produce multiple reports for simple, informative analysis. Profiles assessments give hiring managers and business executives an in-depth look at behavioral tendencies and thinking style of their candidates or employees, giving them a picture of the total person.

In today’s economy, companies can’t afford to hire incompetent people. More than ever, it is vital to an organization’s productivity and success to ensure that the right people are in the right jobs. Profiles recognizes people are an organization’s most valuable asset, and the American Executive article highlights many of Profiles International’s product benefits for talent management.

“Profiles International has become a one-stop shop for organizations worldwide by offering solutions that help clients take the guesswork out of selection and to ease hiring, promotion, management and succession planning,” said Eric Slack, American Executive contributor. “The company studies the top performers at all of the individual companies it works with [to create] a job match pattern.”

Profiles International further distinguished itself in the employment assessment industry in 1999 with the introduction of virtual assessment centers. With this user-friendly Web-based system, job candidates and employees could take assessments from home, eliminating the need to be proctored. Online capabilities minimize stress or nerves for many candidates, and the assessment center compiles results in an easy-to-read format for managers.

American Executive magazine’s aim is to become an all-encompassing business periodical to provide “technology updates, marketing and management strategies, finance and legal advice, and global tactics.” Each month, they recognize a company through a case study called “Global Mindset,” and Profiles International is a truly global company, with products in 32 languages and clients in 122 countries. Profiles International strives to stay at the front of the market through continual validation and research. “We want to know how well we are performing,” said Jim Sirbasku, CEO, “and find ways to improve so our clients can rely on us even more.”
