Can't Find Good Employees? / ¿No Se Puede Encontrar Buenos Empleados? - What if you could use a tool before you hire to predict which employees will be reliable and trustworthy? Well, now you do.

The Step One Survey reveals a job applicant's work attitudes Before You Hire:
  1. Integrity - Can The Applicant Be Trusted? / Integridad - ¿El Candidato Puede Ser de Confianza?
  2. Reliability - Is The Applicant Dependable? / Fiabilidad - ¿Es Fiable La Solicitante?
  3. Work Ethic - Will The Applicant Be A Long-Term, Hard-Working Employee? - Ética de Trabajo - ¿Será El Solicitante Sea Un Trabajador Largo Plazo de Buen Trabajo?
  4. Drug Use - What Are The Applicant's Attitudes About Alcohol or Drug Use? / Consumo de Drogas - ¿Cuáles Son Las Actitudes Del Solicitante Sobre El Consumo De Alcohol o Drogas?
The Step One Survey is a cost-effective tool available in English or Spanish, and can be easily administered online at your place of business in just 15 minutes. View Sample Reports here: Step One Survey Sample Reports. Traducción en Español Aquí.
