powered by science.
One simple behavioral assessment gives you the people data you need to make informed hiring decisions, nurture employee development and enhance team dynamics.
Getting to the heart of who someone is is at the heart of what we do.
Behavioral Essentials’ core science is our E3 Assessment, a behavioral assessment which boosts awareness of a person’s strengths and highlights potential opportunities for growth. One simple assessment will instantly identify the behavioral traits of you, your employees, and candidates so that you can make the right people decisions fast.
Valid & Reliable
The E3 Assessment was determined EEO compliant by a prominent employment law firm before we went to the market in 2006.
Focuses on Behaviors
The E3 Assessment is easy to administer, takes 8-10 minutes to complete and the results are generated instantly.
Driven by decades of
The E3 Assessment is based on adjective checklist methodology for behavioral testing that was established as a valid and reliable methodology in the 1950s and 1960s, and has been tested with thousands of companies. Adjectives are used because they represent an individual’s preferences more accurately than statements or questions. Because of language differences, literacy levels, cultural and regional nuances, and other contextual factors, many assessments that have statistically validated results still fail to capture an individual’s behavioral preferences because people don’t understand the statements or questions presented or can be more easily gamed.
A BIODATA Instrument
More powerful than a
The E3 Assessment falls under the category of biodata in the US Office of Personnel Management’s classification of assessments. Biodata refers to behavioral consistency – in other words, past behavior is a reliable indicator of future behavior. In addition, biodata instruments like the E3 Assessment represent a larger perspective of an individual’s way of being in the world. Unlike the DISC or MBTI, which give you a 4-item perspective of fixed traits, the E3 Assessment is a composite of your motivators and preferences of behavior – this means that you can’t extract just one result and it be true on its own, instead your results must be looked at like a mosaic that fits together as a whole.
