"With the help of Lamplighter Performance Consulting we came across Harrison Assessments.... We have now transferred to using Harrison Assessments for both recruitment and career development.... Harrison Assessments have now been used in a number of recruitments, and have been well-received by managers, as well as resulting in significant savings to GESB.... Employees...love the reports and find them very easy to understand.  Because the information is based on their own work preferences, people are very comfortable with the feedback, which provides a great starting point for the coaching conversation.

We’d like to thank Lamplighter Performance Consulting for helping us implement this tool."

In addition the Behavioural Assessments also provide management with an insightful understanding of how best to manage individual employees to ensure high performance.

We have found Harrison Assessments to be ‘uncannily accurate’ as a predictor of human behaviour and are now more confident about the recruiting process in general as well as management of individual staff members. . . .

We have also had positive responses from candidates themselves who see the Harrison Assessments as portraying a very positive and professional image, which can help sell them to your company as well.

Harrison Assessments™ are an exceptional Work Preferences Talent Suitability System that will give you unprecedented talent development tools.  Developed over the course of 30 years, Harrison Assessments™ (HA) provides unmatched insight on individual and organisational performance.

The only reason that we use this talent management profiling system is because, after twenty years of exploring psychometric profiles, personality tests and leadership profiling, we found Harrison Assessments™ to be the most effective, reliable and cost effective method for determining key suitability traits that align with human performance principles.  We were so impressed when we first undertook it ourselves, that we had to incorporate it into our own work.  For that “paper and pencil” assessment element, Harrison Assessments™ provides superior flexibility, analysis and information at every point.  (For striking a balance between written assessments and holistic methods, see our articles “Know Thyself” and “Know Thyself, Part II”.)

Harrison Assessments™ gives you tremendous information for talent management, providing reliability in:

What Does Harrison Assessments Do?

Harrison Assessments™ assesses over 150 work preference traits, yet accomplishes this through a brief (less than 30 minutes) questionnaire and follow-up interpretation with high reliability and construct validity. Harrison Assessments™ also demonstrates high correlational validity with personality assessments such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the 16PF, meaning that you have a reliable, proven tool established according to world standards.

Harrison Assessments™ costs a fraction of other personality and behavioural questionnaires, for greater results. Given the costs of recruiting and losing good people, a consultation is a small investment that can profit you tens of thousands of dollars per person.

As a Work Preferences questionnaire, Harrison Assessments™ has the unique ability to forecast success of individuals and teams within specific roles with a high degree of accuracy AND to provide direction for HOW individuals can develop their skills and preferences to perform better.  But unlike a large array of personality assessments, it does this without unduly pigeon-holing people.

Benchmarked against thousands of samples of high performers in numerous roles, Harrison Assessments™ has a strong research basis and practical orientation.  It is unique and it is the best single tool of its type that we have seen - that's why we're proud to be Harrison Assessments™ consultants.
