CQA Pre-Employment Assessment Leads the Market

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:

  1. Caregiver Quality Assurance – 32.1%
  2. Care Profiler – 11.5%
  3. People Clues – 5.1%
  4. DISC from Inscape Publishing – 3.8%
  5. Profiles International – 2.6%
  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.
