Delta Consultants has a good track record providing psychological services for Los Angeles organizations. Our services often include pre-employment testing and leadership evaluations in particular. Working on site or remotely with organizations based on the West Coast, has always been a source of mutual achievement and satisfaction.

Like all companies throughout the U.S., Los Angeles firms surely understand the importance of retaining the right executives and professionals for key roles. Delta’s psychological services for organizations in Los Angeles provide an assessment perspective that enables companies to select people who embrace the culture and contribute successfully. We do it through a cost-effective blend of in-depth interviewing and a well-conceived, on-line, self-administered test program.

Of course, we believe that having the right background, a good interview, and favorable references are all important selection factors. However, in-depth psychological evaluation can boost a company’s selection success from 50 to 60% to 80 and 90+%. Considering the costs associated with bad hires, and the great benefits of picking the right people, the leadership assessment factor can truly boost a company’s profitable growth through more effective and dedicated employees, and stronger customer satisfaction, retention and growth.

Other Pre-Employment Testing Applications for Los Angeles Area Companies

We have also used leadership assessment methods to understand executive team dynamics and effectiveness as well as individual leadership capacity. This can be important for corporations and private equity firms involved in buying businesses for strategic or financial investment reasons. Thus, business buyers often use our executive assessment services as part of their pre-acquisition due diligence, or after acquisition to enable pro-active development and inculturation.

We have assisted private equity firms in getting an in-depth handle on their prospective human capital in Los Angeles-based, technical service and manufacturing firms.

Another pre-employment testing program for Los Angeles pertains to service, sales, project management, and technical jobs that have at least 20 employees. Typically, these jobs and the people in them have and a high impact on sales, expenses and growth. In these situations, we usually recommend a “Performance-based Test Validation” project.

These research-based projects include:

  • a comprehensive job study
  • a successful competency and trait profile
  • trial tests to tap the success profile
  • valid performance measures of present employees
  • testing current employees with the trial test package
  • selecting a final test package that reliably differentiates higher from lower performing candidates.

If requested, we can also create a structured interview based on the job study and success profile. The Los Angeles client may also choose to operate the newly installed, pre-employment testing program independently, or with different levels of Delta’s support.

For a global manufacturer, their Los Angeles region was a key participant in a performance-based validation project for a sales role and they have benefitted from it for many years.

Leadership Assessment-Based Development Programs for Los Angeles Companies

We also use leadership assessment for Los Angeles executives and key professionals to grow successfully in their jobs, and to prepare for succession into larger positions.

These development programs basically include:

  • an executive evaluation using the interview and on-line instruments described previously; the evaluation may also include a 360 assessment.
  • evaluation feedback and coaching
  • agreement on strengths, improvement issues and goals with a sponsor or boss
  • results-oriented development planning
  • agreement with the sponsor and/or boss on the development plan and
  • three to six follow-up coaching meetings to ensure attitude and skill improvements and continued learning.
