ZeroRisk Hiring System Partner for Education
The ZERORISK Hiring System is a pre-employment assessment tool with position-specific benchmarks and custom behavioral interview guides designed to help you hire the right candidate. Our assessment measures clarity of thinking and emotional intelligence.
We support School Boards and Search Consultants with a pre-selection assessment that is a private, confidential process. Governing Boards establish goals and priorities, adopt policies, and represent the community sets the framework for what happens in schools. However, the most challenging task for most Boards is whom to put your trust in as the Leader. Finding the right Superintendent who will engage students, staff, community and families requires the best person who fits with where the District is in its journey today -- the person who can lead the District to even greater excellence.
HOW WE HELP
In the initial round(s) of interviews, we offer the Board insight into each candidate’s thinking processes using a system that blends a revolutionary science and technology that measures the candidate’s valuing. The assessment goes beyond personality traits and behavior by objectively measuring his/her value structure and emotional intelligence competencies.
This scientific tool gives Governing Boards an edge in the interview process by providing understanding of each candidate’s thinking processes. The profile explains the attention level that the candidate gives to three areas: relationships, results, and rules/policies. Each of these areas impact the candidate’s effectiveness in leading staff and in working with Board members, families and the community. Knowing each candidate’s decision-making processes provides a more informed basis for exploring the degree of fit in your District during the interview.
In the final round of interviews, our comparative analysis details similarities, difference, and challenges that distinguish the candidates. For this round of interviews we provide additional tailored questions for each finalist. Attached is an example of final round interview candidate’s analysis that the Governing Board / Search Consultant would receive.
The process each candidate experiences is efficient and simple. His/her confidentiality is always protected. Each candidate who moves to the interview round receives an email to complete the value profile assessment. The profile takes 15 minutes to complete. The Board receives the profile summaries and an analysis of each candidate’s decision-making processes along with questions that support the Board in exploring the candidate’s thinking.
