Testimonials For Trive Culture

  • The assessment was spot on and just talking through it in our session was really eye opening and I think having the printed assessment will be a nice guide. Having everyone share different things from their assessment is going to be helpful in communicating with team members.

  • The workshop was very practical, and it took into account our whole personality and what it brings to the team. I like how everyone had time to share and give input and I felt it was a very safe environment to share which was a big plus.

  • For the first time in my experience, Ole at Trive gave us the tools and the foundation that allows us to go forward with common language and expectations that has STUCK. Nothing before stuck with us and is used daily.

  • Step One Survey: Hire Employees You Can Trust

    The Step One Survey® provides information businesses can use to hire employees who are honest, reliable, and hardworking. It’s a solution that helps find the right people to contribute to a company’s success—not jeopardize its future.

    The Step One Survey is a brief pre-hire assessment and screening tool that measures an individual’s basic work-related values early in the candidate selection process. This assessment provides valid insight into an applicant’s work ethic, reliability, integrity, propensity for substance abuse, and attitudes towards theft—including the theft of property, data, and time. In many organizations, the Step One Survey is the first screen that all applicants must pass before proceeding in the hiring process. By filtering candidates early in the process, this tool saves you time so that you can focus on hiring the right candidates that fuel the success of your organization.

  • Customer Service Profile: Hire for Superior Customer Service, Every Time

    The Customer Service ProfileTM assessment provides information that customer-facing organizations can use to attract and develop people with the traits and skills to excel in customer service roles. The assessment helps companies maximize their brand recognition, minimize the cost of bad hires, and deliver outstanding brand experiences that positively impact the bottom line.

  • CheckPoint 360: Develop Leaders That Get Results

    When managers and leaders operate effectively, teams and individual employees thrive. But when they don’t, organizations suffer. So, how can organizations coach and develop managers and leaders to be more effective in their roles and promote success?

    They can start by using the CheckPoint 360°TM survey. This feedback survey helps evaluate the effectiveness of managers and leaders and provides a personalized approach for developing leadership
    skills and improving job performance. By providing the right insight, the survey encourages a culture of high-performance that drives results from the top down.

    The CheckPoint 360° survey combines feedback from direct reports, peers, supervisors, and even others who work with your leaders to help leaders and managers improve their performance and deliver on strategic goals.
