The KENNA Company believes that a major part of your company’s success is dependent on two critical factors: the people you hire, i.e. employee selection. and how people are managed. That’s why we have made hiring, developing and retaining the best possible talent the center of what we do for our clients. We help companies like yours benchmark key jobs i.e. the profile of attributes, competencies, motivators and behaviors that best fits the job and your company.

We call it ‘Job Fit’. Job Fit is right when your expectations of the person you hire are matched by the reality – 6 to 12 months after the new employee starts their job. Job Fit is essential for maximum job success – productivity, satisfaction and retention. Many companies use only behavioral assessments / personality tests as pre-assessment tools. Many of these behavioral assessments / personality tests only measure HOW an individual prefers to work. But behavioral assessments / personality tests are only part - and perhaps the least important part - of job fit.

We use three validated pre-employment assessments (The TriMetrix System) that accurately assess the job's needs in the areas of business competencies, attributes, motivators AND behaviors. This validated and thorough assessment process is referred to as 'a whole person' assessment. This objective information - in combination with a candidate's resume, education, experience, and performance during the interview process - will help insure that your hiring system will accurately and objectively identify which candidate best fits each job's profile.

We also provide Executive Coaching to assist in the development of managers and other leaders. By the way, there are hundreds of behavioral assessments / personality tests available. We'd like you to try two of our top selling assessments at no cost whatsoever by clicking here. (The assessments we'll send you are the full versions of the best selling behavioral assessment available and TTI Success Insights - Workplace Motivators.) Not only are your assessments provided at no charge (we want you to understand their value), we'll also debrief your assessment with you by phone at no cost or obligation (and with no sales pitch).
