Web-Based Talent Assessment System to Help Maximize Quality of Hires, Reduce Turnover and Streamline the Selection Process
DALLAS – June 20, 2012 – PeopleAnswers today announced a software licensing agreement with Bozzuto Management Company, a subsidiary of The Bozzuto Group of companies. Through the agreement, Bozzuto will use the PeopleAnswers HR solution in its process to identify candidates with the traits and behaviors needed to create and deliver the best living environment possible for its customers.
“To achieve our vision of employing the most talented leaders in the industry, we need a tool like PeopleAnswers to help us select associates who believe in our long term vision of being the best real estate company in the country,” said Julie A. Smith, president, Bozzuto Management Company. “We are confident that PeopleAnswers will support our already low employee turnover and will allow us to carefully select employees who will grow with us as we expand our portfolio throughout the Northeast.”
Bozzuto’s hiring managers will use the easy-to-navigate, web-based PeopleAnswers assessment test to prescreen and behaviorally assess candidates for leasing consultants and maintenance technicians in all 123 of its apartment communities. Through this process, Bozzuto expects to see increased quality of talent and improved employee retention within the first year of employment, which together will result in a stronger and more consistent brand across its portfolio of properties.
PeopleAnswers will integrate with Bozzuto’s applicant tracking system to create a consistent, seamless and automated recruitment process focused on replicating high performance companywide. Bozzuto will also use PeopleAnswers as its standard guide for interview content and employee development.
“Most of the largest property management firms across the United States have realized employee assessments aren’t just used to create a more consistent hiring process,” said Gabriel Goncalves, CEO and president, PeopleAnswers. “The technology identifies traits to help select employees who will help achieve company goals.”
