According to the 2013 Private Duty Benchmarking Study just released this week by Home Care Pulse, the Caregiver Quality Assurance® pre-employment assessment is the market leader for home care companies using online assessments to help select caregivers.
This year, 617 home care companies completed the annual benchmarking survey, and 22% said they use an online pre-employment assessment tool to help in their selection. CQA leads the market by a significant margin.
Here is a list of the top providers of online assessments and the percentage of survey respondents who use them:
- Caregiver Quality Assurance – 32.1%
- Care Profiler – 11.5%
- People Clues – 5.1%
- DISC from Inscape Publishing – 3.8%
- Profiles International – 2.6%
- Kolbe Index – 1.3%
What sets the CQA assessment apart from the others listed is the four dimensions of assessment – attitudes, behavior, cognitive ability, and engagement. Most of the others only measure behavior.
