  4. Can I see a sample report?

    We’ll do even better than that!  We encourage all prospective clients to take a FREE behavioral profile so you can really understand how it works and what it can do for you!  We’ll review your results and completely go over the report from top to bottom so you can clearly see how behavioral assessments can improve your bottom line!

  5. How is the Omnia Profile administered?

    The assessment can be taken online, or on paper form in your office.    Although the assessment is generally completed in 15 minutes or less, it is suggested that the candidate set aside quiet, uninterrupted time, to get the most unhindered results.  Although it is not necessary to supervise while the candidate is taking the assessment, it’s best to encourage the candidate to answer the questions as honestly and accurately as possible.  It is not a pass/fail test, and by no means, the sole determinant for making a hiring decision.  In fact, the Omnia Profile should account for only 20 to 25 percent of the overall hire, promotion and career development decisions.

    When used as part of the employee selection process, we recommend candidates take the Profile prior to the first interview, ensuring the candidate is unaware of the specifics of the job. It is free to administer the assessment.

  6. How long does it take to complete?

    Average time to complete it is about 10-15 minutes.  Our assessment does not take as long as many others on the market…this gives your candidate a much more pleasant experience in a time that can be very stressful…job hunting!

  7. How long before I see the results?

    If we receive the candidate assessment (online or on paper) before 2pm EST, you will have your customized tailored results within 3 hours.  (Other Omnia products are available instantly)  Assessments received after 2pm EST. will be provided the next business morning.  We also have an expedited 1 hour service for a minimal fee.

  8. How can it help me hire the right person?

    Our assessment of a candidate’s potential for success is based upon your definition of appropriate behavior for a position.

    The Omnia Profile helps you to cut through the resume catch phrases for an unobstructed view of candidate’s workplace tendencies.  The results give you the insight to make a more informed and confident hiring decision.

  9. What are peer and supervisor benchmarking?

    Omnia can establish a benchmark on each position based on the traits of your top performers. We analyze the traits of your star performers to find out what makes them successful and then we identify if your candidates have the same attributes. The supervisor also takes a Profile so the Profile will report how the supervisor can best work with this particular candidate.

  10. How can it help me manage more effectively?

    The Omnia Profile pinpoints the strengths, hot buttons, hidden potential and developmental needs for each employee. Knowing the best way to communicate, motivate, spot problems early and create job satisfaction will improve the overall performance of your team and improve employee retention.

  11. What about ADA/EEOC?

    Because it is completely vocationally relevant, The Omnia Profile complies with current ADA/EEOC guidelines.

  12. What about validation and bias?

    The Omnia Profile has been validated by two independent studies. The Omnia Profile has been found to be free of any form of gender, race or age bias.

  13. Who do I call if I have a question? What about training?

    You will be assigned a Client Advisor to help walk you through the whole process and be available for any questions and training that you may need assistance with.

  14. Client Advisor consultation is UNLIMITED with no charge to you.

    Client Advisors are available from 8:30am-5:30pm (Eastern Time) to assist you and also can provide you with behavioral interview questions and help with classified ads.  You may also reach our Advisors for quick questions via Live Chat or simply give us a call:  800.525.7117

  15. How will I be billed?

    You may purchase profiles in packages in advance of their required usage and save money.  Billing (or reductions from profile packages that may have been purchased) for Omnia Profiles does not initiate until your candidate’s assessment (either online or on paper) is completed and approved for processing. You have complete control over the approval process and may have your account setup for automatic approval or manual approval.  Depending on how your account is set up, you will either be automatically billed to a credit card, invoiced within 1 day of a package purchase or billed semi-monthly for single use purchases.
