Employee fraud and theft robs American businesses of over $50 billion annually.
It’s startling, but it’s true. Organizations need help identifying people who are less likely to steal, be dishonest, and have questionable tendencies.
To help organizations reduce or mitigate the risk to their bottom line, Step One Survey® provides information that businesses can use to hire employees who are honest, reliable, and hardworking. It’s a solution that helps find the right people to contribute to a company’s success—not jeopardize its future.
What is the Step One Survey Assessment?
The Step One Survey™ is a brief pre-hire assessment and screening tool that measures an individual’s basic work-related values early in the candidate selection process. This assessment provides valid insight into an applicant’s work ethic, reliability, integrity, propensity for substance abuse, and attitudes towards theft—including the theft of property, data, and time. In many organizations, the SOSII™ is the first screen that all applicants should pass before proceeding in the hiring process. By filtering candidates early in the process, this tool saves you time so that you can focus on hiring the right candidates that fuel the success of your organization.
The Step One Survey Helps Your Organization To:
Acquire valid insight early in a candidate's selection process
Measure an individual's basic work-related values
Access an applicant's work ethic, reliability and integrity
Reduce the risk when hiring new candidates in a quick and cost effective way
Reduce New Hire Turnover
In use over 30 years, continuous Validation Studies for adverse impact & reliability (most recent 2020)
How Does the Step One Survey Work?
While pen and paper options are available, hiring managers administer the survey by sharing an online link with each candidate. From there, the candidate takes the online survey on their own. Once the candidate finishes the survey, the hiring manager immediately receives a notification and can view the results.
It can be integrated into an online application process as an automatic "step 2" post submission.
