Resumés Only Show Past Experience. Smart Work | Assessments
For Hiring Predict Performance at YOUR Company.

Organizations tend to hire based on a candidate’s specific experience. But how can you be sure that an applicant will exert the same effort and achieve the same results—or better—for your company?

Hire based on potential, rather than experience or behavior alone. Powered by self-management science, our career assessment tools show whether an applicant’s inherent traits and relevant learned behaviors are a strong “fit” for the job as well as for the manager and team they will be joining.

Unlike traditional personality profiles, Smart Work’s POP™ Assessments do not simply describe behaviors. With 30 million data sets generated over 40+ years of continuous study, we know which traits and learned behaviors are typical of high performers in numerous job roles. Our assessments compare candidates to these normative ranges, making it possible to predict a candidate’s potential for success in a specific position with up to 99.5% probability using customized models.


SELECTION OF TALENT is like using a thermal imaging tool. At first glance, candidates may look the same, but our selection tools are unmatched at finding the hottest candidate.

Thanks to POP™ Career Assessment tools, my company has saved time and made more money by basing our hiring decisions on the science of selection. We conducted a multiple-year statistical benchmarking study to match our high-performing dealers to the critical personality traits measured in the POP™ Career Assessment, allowing us to develop a highly predictive customized science model for selecting only high-performing dealers for our territories. Now, we invest our time with those dealers who are most likely to succeed to our standards! And, we provide a unique, highly valuable career development tool to our dealers to help them know more about themselves--even for the ones we don’t select.
