Austin, TX, June 29, 2010 — Profiles International, a global leader in employment assessment tools, proudly launches a new division, the Profiles Research Institute. The Profiles Research Institute is advancing research in business by requesting insight and opinions from real professionals, in real work environments, dealing with real problems. In so doing, Profiles bridges the gap between research and reality, and gains a more accurate and comprehensive picture of what businesses need to solve their most common people problems.

The Profiles Research Institute surveys focus on topics such as building great teams; cultivating effective leaders; developing employees; improving front-line management; reducing conflict, theft, and absenteeism; and selecting and organizing people. Participating in the online surveys provides employees and business leaders with the unique opportunity to make their voice heard. When survey participants contribute to global research, they also receive access to research data.

“Managing a Multi-Generational Workforce” is an example of a survey available on the Profiles Research Institute site. Currently, there are four generations in the workplace. This diversity creates new obstacles involving respect, communication and work styles that managers must rectify. With this survey, Profiles Research Institute attempts to uncover the most common sources of multigenerational conflict and the best practices for preventing and resolving them. After studying the data, Profiles Research Institute will then find ways to improve current Profiles International assessments.

“The research collected from these surveys will be directly used to expand our assessments, to hear what businesses really need and how they would like to see assessments enhance their processes,” says Dario Priolo, Managing Director of the Profiles International Research Institute.
